Last fur farm in Alaska closed?

According to the new book “The Fur Farms of Alaska”, the last fur farm in the state closed in 1993. It was said to be a fox farm called Whitestone Farms in Delta Junction, AK. The book also notes fur farming in Alaska was largely unregulated and lacking records, so it is possible smaller fur farms remain. Send any info to whistleblower [at]...

Newly Discovered Fur Farm Near Seattle Appears to be Open

Recently, FinalNail.com posted the address of a previously unknown mink farm in Redmond, Washington. The farm is improbably located in an area with very high property values, in the same town as Microsoft’s headquarters. It is just three miles east of the Whole Foods, off the same large road. The Final Nail (.com) has this entry for the farm: Brick Road Fur Farm 19780 NE 55th Place (alt. 5616 196th Avenue NE) Redmond, WA 98053 Phone: (425) 868-4192 Contact: Blair Hudson Notes: Mink farm. There has been no confirmation on the operational status of the farm, but this week CAFF received a report of a protest at the farm coinciding with the Seattle Fur Exchange / American Legend auction happening just south, in Renton, Washington (the American Legend auction is the largest fur auction in the country, and sales there are a barometer of the overall health of the US fur industry). While the protest did not yield a definite confirmation of the farm, there was evidence to indicate the farm was open. The circumstantial evidence gathered from this protest was: 1) The farm posted “No Trespassing” signs in anticipation of the protest, an unlikely move for a fur farm that was no longer open. 2) Neighbors who spoke with the activists indicated the farm was open. 3) Police acted to block off possible access points to the sheds, indicating there was something back there to “protect”. The cumulative evidence suggests this farm is open. View an aerial image of the farm at this...
