Esquire Visits the Farm

John Mariani, of Esquire magazine, made a visit to Hudson Valley Foie Gras recently.

His findings were similar to the findings of everyone else who bothers to take a tour of the farm: "I didn't see any of this suffering those crazies are screaming on and on about...Ducks raised for foie gras production are treated as well as (and probably better than) most animals in the food chain."

Yet another unbiased report of a visit to a foie gras farm. In the article Mariani even mentions how others can go about getting a tour of the farm. Try it. Chances are you'll find the same thing he did: foie gras is produced humanely.

Philly Foie Needs Your Help!

Philly fans of foie gras unite! This Saturday December 8th, Philly foie fans are planning a protest. An anti-protest.

This Saturday, Hugs for Puppies and Professionals Against Foie Gras will be holding a "No Foie Gras Gala" to fund raise. The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Square. The groups, lobbying for a city ban on the delicacy, will host Jack Kelly, Gene Bauer and other animals rights activists. The menu will include a variety of vegan appetizers.

Hugs For Puppies has made a name for itself loudly protesting outside Philly restaurants selling foie gras. City-Councilman Kelly would like to see foie gras banned. This is a call to fans of foie gras in Philly to give those zealots a taste of their own medicine! Show up on Saturday to help keep foie gras legal in Philadelphia.
