Perdue And Hudson Farm Speak Out Post Victory

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Victory for a local farm after three years in the middle of a lawsuit. Perdue and Hudson Farms are finally speaking out. You may remember The Waterkeeper Alliance claimed the Hudson Farm was polluting a nearby river and that the poultry giant should also be held liable. But Thursday, a judge said the plaintiffs failed to prove their case and that the family owned farm did not violate the Clean Water Act.

The ruling came with mixed emotions, "You didn't know how to react, it's, we've not felt that good in a long time. It's really a big weight off your shoulders, it really is," says Alan Hudson of Hudson Farms. "I mean you're talking about millions of dollars wasted fro no good reason whatsoever; could've been used in a much better way to help the bay," adds Jim Perdue of Perdue Chicken.

Alan Hudson says that he and his family owe thanks to all the other farm families that contributed money to their defense. And without the support, he and his family would not have made it through the ordeal.
