This is the first poultry unit at the Northern Poultry Campus at Boroughbridge near York. The ethos of the Campus is to create a series of highly efficient, high-welfare free-range poultry units, which are located in an environmentally friendly setting of 600 acres of trees and wildflower meadows. The litter and sileage from the range feed a local Anaerobic Digester. Ground source heat pumps will provide even temperatures for the birds for efficient egg production.
The Campus at Sally Farm will be a place of learning for degree students and apprentices. With 4 identical 16,000 bird poultry houses on each development, it will be a venue for research on a commercial scale where comparative controlled trials can be performed
This farm will be a facility for the UK poultry industry, a template for modern egg production and is the future of high poultry welfare.
Join us to be part of UK poultry history.
