Perdue Pre-Trial Statement on Waterkeeper Alliance vs. Alan and Kristin Hudson Farm

We look forward to a full and thorough hearing of this case by Judge Nickerson. We remain confident in the merits of our arguments and are eager to present them to the Court.  

This case has never been about pollution but about an extreme activist group’s opposition to modern agriculture and their use of “hard-nosed litigation” to achieve their objectives.    

Unfortunately, Alan and Kristin Hudson and the possible bankrupting of this fourth-generation Maryland farm family are the collateral damage in the Waterkeepers’ attack on the poultry industry.   

We find it ironic that Perdue, one of the most environmentally progressive poultry companies and the only one providing an outlet for farmers who don’t have a use for their chicken litter, is targeted in this suit. 

Perdue is an environmental leader with a long history of investing in research, new technologies, equipment upgrades, awareness and training to address environmental issues. We believe it is possible to preserve the family farm and provide a safe, abundant and affordable food supply, while protecting our communities and the environment.

We look forward to our day in court.
