A West Virginia based chicken farmer switched to plant agriculture after exposing the rigged tortuous system of the poultry industry.
Poultry farmer Mike Weaver raised chickens for Pilgrim’s Pride- one of the largest chicken producers in the U.S.
However, he was increasingly agitated with the unfair practices rampant in the industry and finally decided to voice his discontent and ditch animal farming in 2016.
“I’m not going to raise chickens anymore,” Weaver said. “Now, I’m developing an operation on my farm to start growing and processing of industrial hemp and CBD oil products.”
Weaver converted his giant barn that housed around 45,000 chickens into an indoor plantation for hemp crops.
