About Protect The Harvest

The animal rights movement in America, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), has evolved into a wealthy and successful attack group determined to end the consumption of meat, threaten consumer access to affordablefood, eliminate hunting, outlaw rodeos and circuses, and even ban animal ownership (including pets) altogether. Protect The Harvest was created to fight back and defend American families, farmers, sportsmen and animal owners from the growing threat posed by the radical animal rights movement. We believe Americans deserve the truth.  These radical groups are intent on restricting the abilities of our food producers who already face the significant challenge of feeding a growing world population.  It’s our mission to ensure that American farmers are able to meet that challenge so that consumers at home and abroad have access to safe, affordable and healthy food.
