Craddocks Farm Appeal

Council says ‘No’ to cruel mega factory farm – but company appeals

310,000 hens were saved from a life of misery earlier this year following the rejection of a proposal to build a huge caged hen factory farm south of Auckland.

Auckland Council decided to refuse Craddocks Farm permission to build the colony cage egg facility, which would have been the largest colony cage farm in the country, producing 10% of New Zealand’s egg supply.

“It is clear that communities do not want these horror factory farms,” says Executive Director Hans Kriek, “it goes against everything New Zealand stands for.”
