Both farms were nearing the end of their usuable life and struggled to meet modern welfare regulations and best practice.  

At Tolehurst Farm, DHA secured planning permission for two new poultry houses which will accommodate 96,000 free range hens, to replace seven existing poultry houses capable of accommodating 43,000 hens in total. 

At Combwell Farm consent was secured for twelve existing poultry houses, accommodating 95,000 hens, to be removed and replaced with three modern poultry houses capable of accommodating around 172,000 hens. 

The modern poultry houses benefit from air conditioning, automated feed and water dispensing systems and egg and manure collection conveyors which allow for high standards of hen welfare to be achieved.
