All Fresh. All Good. All Egg.

Heat is something we use a lot of at our main rearing facility, those fuzzy yellow chicks thrive on heat and traditionally this has been provided using conventional gas heaters.

At farmlay we’re committed to doing everything we can to help mother earth so today we threw out our old gas heaters and switched on a 1Mw biomass plant fueled by woodchip as a cleaner alternative to gas. 12,000 litres of water is heated to around 83 degrees and pumped to our rearing units where the heat is extracted from radiators to keep our little chicks warm.
