Yesterday when we got to the farm, our neighbors dropped off a sign for us to post by the road. So proud to do so. If I had a huge banner, I would drape it across the whole front of the barn.
Here is a picture they emailed me yesterday morning. This is the same site that I posted pics of last week where they were digging test holes. Now there are stakes on the property. This is the first property they have placed stakes. Seems like a bad sign to me.No permit has been applied for, yet. So my eyes just teared up when I saw the picture. Not as bad as if a permit had been applied for (that will be a long, long cry, and utter sadness, believe me) but I guess I have to prepare for the worst if it happens.
I haven't given up yet though. It is an uphill battle but I am willing to do what I can to stop Petry from destroying our county.
That brings me to this. I have always liked to write. I'm working on an idea for a story. Does anyone know someone who has or is living by a factory farm? Someone who would be willing to talk or write to me? I want first-hand stories of their experience. I am also doing research on the internet but would like to talk directly if possible to the unfortunate people who have dealt with this before. So, I am asking you to think about it and let me know.
