LOT 3 - 11.00 HA (26.22 ACRES) EGG PRODUCTION UNIT
A fully automated free range egg production unit constructed in 2005 housing 12,000 birds and built to Lion Code and Freedom Food standards.
Key features include; 2 x 16t capacity feed bins, time clocks, chain and flight feed track, vencomatic nest boxes, Sparkcup drinkers (2014), Alis LED lighting with dawn/dusk ramping (2015), automatic popholes (2014), temperature controlled and timed air movement fans, internal litter gates, Staalkat egg packer, emergency auto-start generator (2015), auto dial alarm for power supply failure, 9 stand electric fence around range perimeter, veranda area and concrete cleanout pads at each end.
In addition there is a substantial red brick barn currently used for storage. The barn has an elevated position enjoying views down into the Tas valley and has the potential for other uses subject to gaining the necessary planning consent.
The site also has 47.6kW ground mounted solar PV panels which were erected in March 2013. The FIT is 13.03p/kW. This generates around £9,000pa in feed-in tariff and exported electricity and is estimated to save around £2,000pa in electricity costs in running the egg production unit.
The site is accessed from the A140 Ipswich Road and has mains electricity and water connected together with private drainage for on site welfare facilities.
