A subject close to my heart, have a read of this email from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall from River Cottage:
Dear Friend of River Cottage,
I need your help…
You may have heard about the conditions involved in intensive factory farming of broiler (meat) chickens. I feel that these conditions are unacceptable – so much so, that I’m launching a national campaign to put pressure on the industry to raise its standards: the Chicken Out! campaign.
Chicken Out! has so far been led by River Cottage locals, especially in and around Axminster, and we’ve had a fantastic response. But now I need your support. I’m asking all of you, as friends of River Cottage, to support this campaign and get it off to a flying start across the nation. Please just click the link below, or if you’re not convinced, see www.chickenout.tv for more info.
And pass it on to your friends, if we get enough support, we really can make a difference.
