The Beyond Factory Farming Coalition is a national organization of citizen’s groups promoting socially responsible livestock production in Canada.

We help communities that are dealing with problems caused by factory farms and factory farm proposals.

As an alternative to industrial livestock operations, we promote livestock production that is safe, fair and healthy for the environment, farmers, workers, animals, neighbours, communities and consumers. Establishing socially responsible livestock production is a means to reach the overarching goal of food sovereignty—democratic citizen control of our food and agriculture system.
