The farm has a strong history of investing in new facilities and houses. In conjunction with Turnbull & Scott, the farm management designed and installed a preconditioning air heater, which is thought to be unique in the UK. This design for the new sheds allows air to be preheated before entry, giving summer conditions to the chickens all year round. With warm, dry air entering the shed, litter conditions are improved, which in turn gives the customer cleaner, higher quality birds. Coupled with under-floor heating, this results in the highest environmental standards.
Gilled Tube Manufactured & Installed
Turnbull & Scott manufactured and supplied 560 metres of 65mm bore hot-dip galvanised gilled tubes in a double stacked arrangement running along both sides of the shed. This enables the shed to be heated using water at 80°c from a conventional or biomass boiler.
