Humane Education

HFA’s program to end the inhumane treatment of farm animals is far reaching and multi-faceted. HFA’s award-winning The Pig Picture documentary along with HFA’s Level I and Level II Farm Animal Educational Books are being used by teachers nationwide to explore the problems of factory farming.

HFA’s materials are receiving glowing reviews from parents, educators, and others who are looking for educational materials relating to farm animal protection. More meaningful, perhaps, have been the hundreds of emails, letters and art we have received from young people across the country.

The Pig Picture

The Pig Picture may forever change America’s image of the “Other White Meat.” Highlighting HFA investigative footage, this powerful documentary traces the development of commercial pig production in America – from the small-scale family farms of yesterday – to the corporate-owned pig factories of today. This acclaimed documentary details the natural behavior of pigs, the suffering of factory-raised pigs, the industry’s reliance upon antibiotics, and the environmental impact of factory farming.

The Pig Picture is appropriate for viewers of all ages and does not contain scenes of animal slaughter.

HFA’s Farm Animal and Activity Workbooks

HFA’s activity books are designed to challenge, inspire, and motivate children to think of ways in which they might directly make a difference for farm animals. Through the use of games, stories, and explanations of the problems associated with factory farming, these activity books reinforce the ethos of human compassion and kindness toward animals.

We invite you to participate in our efforts to end the mistreatment of farm animals. Planning a farm animal lecture, program or presentation can be a fun and educational experience for you, your class, or your family.
