Lang Fur Farm Closed, Though Replaced by Dairy Farm (Minnesota, USA))

Received anonymously:

“We’ve confirmed the closure of yet another mink farm, but we have mixed feelings about it. At its height, Lang Fur Farms operated one of the largest fur farms in Minnesota, with over 60,000 mink confined at two different locations.

Their property in the city of Richmond was cleared in 2022, and their farm outside Eden Valley was sold last year. That’s the good news.

Unfortunately, as you can see in the before & after photos shared here, the new owners, a mega-dairy, have replaced mink cages with calf pens. Check back on Friday for the story of what led to the Lang farm’s closure. It’s a disturbing tale of fraud and cruelty.”
