Mission

Farm Forward implements innovative strategies to promote conscientious food choices, reduce farmed animal suffering, and advance sustainable agriculture.

We pursue this work by:

  • Promoting agriculture that combines the best in traditional husbandry and animal welfare science by increasing the market share of more humane, sustainable family farms.
  • Eliminating the worst practices in factory farming.
  • Advocating an acute reduction in the consumption of factory-farmed meat, fish, eggs, and dairy by encouraging conscientious consumer decisionmaking.
  • Supporting interdisciplinary research and undergraduate teaching about the cultural significance of animals and animal agriculture.
  • Stimulating the production of essays, books, films, and religious activities that raise awareness about the problems in animal agriculture and the deeper cultural issues behind them.
