The Socially Responsible Agricultural Project (SRAP) works throughout the U.S. helping communities protect themselves from the negative impacts of factory farms, officially called Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). SRAP gives family farmers, ranchers, and other rural citizens the tools needed to develop and sustain ecologically sound, economically viable, humane farming alternatives to industrial-scale agriculture.
SRAP strives to give family farmers and ranchers, rural residents, and concerned citizens a powerful, united voice which promotes food production that treats animals humanely, is ecologically responsible, grows local economies, and fully supports family-scale agriculture.
SRAP is a grassroots organization that educates the public about the devastating effects of CAFOs, while working directly with the communities most heavily impacted by these animal factories. Through education, advocacy, and community organizing, SRAP empowers rural communities to protect themselves from CAFOs and provides guidance and assistance to communities seeking to develop healthy, sustainable alternatives to industrialized livestock production.
