Hogwood Farm is an horrific place in Warwickshire, which houses 16,000 pigs and is one of the largest pig farms Viva! has ever seen.
The conditions for pigs there are so appalling that Viva! launched a campaign in 2017 urging supporters to TAKE ACTION and help us close down the farm.
Take a look at the sheer amount of local and national press coverage received on Hogwood so far.
Timeline of Events
- Read Juliet's personal account of the original investigation in 2017 here and for all the latest information on the current state of Hogwood, visit our 2018 investigation Factsheet.
On 10th July 2017, a peaceful vigil was held outside Hogwood Farm by Viva! Campaigns and their supporters. Watch the footage here.
On the same day as the vigil, Viva! received a tip off about pig remains being dumped in nearby woodland AND that the farm was supplying supermarket giant, Tesco. Discover what we found.
Despite the attention drawn to the campaign, Tesco still refused to drop Hogwood Farm as a supplier. Viva! sprung into action to organise a National Day of Action for supporters of the campaign to make their voices heard at Tesco stores across the country. Take a look at all the action here and read our Campaigner's POV in our blog.
Further press coverage was gained for the Day of Action, which was featured in the Hereford Times, Bristol Post, Plant Based News and the Thetford and Brandon Times to name a few.
- Due to Tesco's decision to uphold Hogwood Farm as a pork supplier, Viva! began further plans to protest against the conditions these poor animals were suffering in 2018. View all the latest on the second visit to Hogwood Horror Farm here.
