DESCRIPTION
Dunlappie Poultry Unit is a purpose built egg production facility sitting within a ring-fenced block of agricultural land. The unit presents and excellent opportunity for purchasers to run a productive egg laying unit which could be adapted for alternative uses subject to obtaining the necessary Planning consents.

POULTRY UNIT
At the heart of the unit is a Harlow shed of timber construction under a corrugated roof. The unit comprises 2 hen houses, both within an internal area of 1,621 m2, allowing for a maximum of 14,596 hens per hen house. The sheds are fitted with appropriate infrastructure including drinkers, feed pans and nesting areas as well as pop holes allowing for free range egg production.

Centrally to the building, are the grading and egg rooms with an electric egg packer. Under the shed is a good sized hard-core yard area with concrete loading pad and 3 feed bins providing storage for 42 tonnes.

To the south-west of the site is a general purpose shed (18.2 m x 11.8 m) of steel portal frame construction sitting under box profile roof and cladding with part concrete panel walls and hard-core floor.

LAND
The poultry shed is bound by approximately 12.5 acres (5.06 ha) of semi-mature mixed native woodland. The woodland has been fenced and provides an excellent habitat for the free range hens. Beyond the wooded area is a further 38.45 acres (15.56 ha) of arable land currently down to grass which has, in recent years, been utilised for silage production. The land is designated as Grade 3(2) by the James Hutton Institute with a gently sloping aspect ranging from 84m to 111m above sea level. The soil is a mixture of mineral podsozs and brown forest soils.

CURRENT BUSINESS
The current farm business holds a contract with Noble Foods and has an approved AECS Scheme. There may be the opportunity for a potential purchaser to take on these contracts and further details are available from the selling agents. The property may offer scope for diversification subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

An initial approach has been made to the local planning authority to establish a dwelling house on the site and further details are available from the selling agents
