Industries of animal abuse and exploitation benefit from public ignorance. Final is an effort to expose places of industrialized cruelty, and to replace ignorance with knowledge. Your help is needed to create a resource that is up-to-date and comprehensive.

Fur farms

2.7 million mink were killed on U.S. farms in 2019.

Market prices for mink pelts have declined to unprofitable levels in recent years. The average price per pelt in 2019 was $22, far below the costs of production (feed, vaccines, bedding, insurance, utilities, wages). As a result, many fur farms are not in operation in 2020. Our directory likely includes farms that have closed permanently.

Today, there may be as few as 150 mink farms, and less than 50 farms raising fox, in the United States.
