Protect The Harvest:

Your Way Of Life Is At Stake

We stand with you to combat extremism and misguided activism.

Wealthy and Well Organized Special Interests Work To Eliminate Your Freedoms

Most Americans are unaware that there are special interest groups in America that have evolved into a wealthy and well-organized movement that is determined to change our way of life. These groups are aiming to control agriculture, land and water use, and eliminate human-animal interaction as well as hunting and fishing.

Yet the vast majority of these extremists have never set foot on a farm or spent time with people like you who respect God’s creation.

They have no idea what your life is like and the care you give to your land and animals.

Together we can make real impact:

  • Inform and Educate Americans about the activities of extremists that threaten animal welfare, traditions and the farming community

  • Protect our Freedoms and way of life by supporting agriculture, land use, hunting and fishing, animal ownership, and animal welfare.

  • Respond to laws, regulations, or misinformation that would negatively impact animal welfare, animal ownership, restrict our rights, and limit our freedoms.

Meet the Defenders

  • Solid Foundation: Our roots trace back to 2011, when Forrest Lucas established Protect The Harvest in Missouri to tackle restrictive legislation like the Prop B ballot initiative threatening livestock owners.

  • Strength in Unity: We’ve built a broad alliance with organizations involved in agriculture education, youth initiatives, farming advocacy, rodeos, zoos and aquariums, pet breeding, hunting and fishing, and property rights. Together, we share a common purpose of safeguarding your rights and freedoms.

  • National Presence: Our core office may be in Brownsburg, Indiana, but our reach is nationwide. Our devoted team members, spread across the country, work remotely to carry out our mission effectively.

  • Connections and Influence: We maintain relationships at city, county, state, and federal levels, spanning numerous industries – from agriculture, property rights, land resources, pet industries, to exotic animals/zoo/aquariums.
