Purvis Farms Forced to Shut Down
Posted June 27, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT
EASLEY — 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.
