Broiler Chickens

There are 450,000 chickens on the farm at any one time. These chickens are grown for meat consumption and 3.35 milion birds are produced per year on the farm. These birds are grown in purpose built building were all there needs are met.

The heating system within these buildings is ran on hot water and is a by product from the Anaerobic digester by using waste heat. The electricity also comes from the Anaerobic digester. The process creates a farm cyle producing the chickens off green renewable energy.

After approximately six weeks our chickens go to a company called Hook 2 Sisters where they are further sold onto all the UK major supermarkets.
