Purvis Farms Forced to Shut Down

Posted June 27, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— A judge has ordered a Montgomery County hog farm closed. The farm, operated by N-G Purvis Farms, has a history of environmental problems. The most recent was last month when $1,000 fish died from a waste spill.

The farm has two weeks to clear all of its hogs off of the property and cannot resume operations until it obtains a permit from the state.
