EXPANSION AT CHAFFCOMBE FARM

Aug 15, 2016

In the last few months we have been working hard expanding the business further with 2 new chicken sheds at Chaffcombe Farm near Chard.  Both 76m x 20m, clear span buildings have been constructed by Turkington Systems. This means an extra 60,000 birds, totalling 125,000 birds on site.  Embracing the latest of technology, Draper Ventilation have installed gas indirect heating and LED lighting to ensure high insulation values.

In addition to the chicken houses, we have also taken the opportunity to build an office with changing areas for catching & cleaning teams. This is a biosecure area and all visitors have to pass through this building to gain access onto the farm.
