You're likely already aware of how terrible factory farming is for the animals raised in the facilities. From beef to chickens, pigs to turkeys, the conditions are awful and the animals have anything but a natural upbringing. However, as most of us prepare to sit down to a giant cooked bird tomorrow, we may wonder exactly how a factory farmed turkey differs from heritage turkeys raised humanely.

Ethical Ocean provides us with this info graphic that will either make us thankful we skipped the factory farmed turkey this Thanksgiving, or inspire us to go heritage free-range (or tofurkey) next year.
