James Cromwell— an actor best known for his role as the farmer in Babe— is narrating a shocking new film called Farm to Fridge.

The movie is the product of national animal advocacy group Mercy For Animals (MFA), an organization notorious for its undercover investigations that expose cruelty to animals. Their latest film takes viewers inside the belly of our nation’s meat, dairy, and egg operations.

The footage is graphic, and not unlike some of the more revealing PETA ads exposing animal cruelty that many of us are familiar with. For example, scenes that are covered in the film include piglets having their testicles ripped out and their tails chopped off without painkillers, male chicks being ground up alive in giant macerators, and fish being skinned and dismembered while still alive… So, in other words, some of the content is extremely disturbing!

Previously Mercy For Animals has teamed up with animal advocate Bob Barker to expose the veal industry. And before that they went undercover to investigate a dairy farm in Ohio, which revealed workers stabbing cows with pitchforks and beating them with crowbars. That particular investigation sparked international outrage and inspired celebs like Alec Baldwin, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ashton Kutcher, to condemn cruelty to farm animals.

Nathan Runkle, MFA’s Executive Director said of the film, “Farm to Fridge serves as a wake-up call to all American consumers that the meat, dairy and egg industries are morally bankrupt and should be boycotted.”
