115+/- Acre Organic Chicken and Egg Farm in Halifax County VA! 20 Acres of fenced in certified Organic farmland that houses a 10,000 sq. ft. Chicken House, 7+/- acres of Pastureland, 73+/- acres of Mixed Timberland, and 27+/- acres of Cropland, and remaining acreage in ponds and building sites. This is as turnkey an egg farm as you can get. This farm is essentially off the grid and is run off of Air Pressure tanks for all machinery and pumps, and some solar specifically for the Egg Cooler. There is Electric at the road front on Abbott Hill Road, if you’d like to hook up the facilities, but if you want a low-cost operation and off the grid option for a hobby farm or a full fledge business then it doesn’t get much better than this!
Chicken house and barn/workshop are less than 5 years old and are in great condition! All working floor spaces in both the barn and the egg room are concrete floors. Easy cleaning and maintenance. Loading dock attached to the egg room with easy access to the egg cooler. Egg Room is 16x42 ft.) (672 sq. ft.). Driveway/parking area is large enough for semi-trucks and heavy equipment to turn around for the loading dock and plenty of visibility at the road frontage for safe entry and exit from the property for trucks and tractors. Chicken and Egg numbers vary typically due to environmental factors as well as the age and productivity of the flock, but on average, anywhere from 400-1000 dozen eggs are produced per day. That’s anywhere from 3-7 pallet loads of eggs are produced per week depending on the health and age of the flock. This currently equates to approximately $2,000 per pallet and an average of around $60-65k in net profit every year. With minimal maintenance, utilities, equipment, and only feed costs (depending on the egg contract), there is very little costs to cut into the bottom line. There is currently an active Egg contract in place that continues until 2023.
The Barn is broken up into two parts: Barn and Workshop. The Barn section is 38x32 (1,200 sq. ft.) and features 3 horse stalls and has a loft with ample storage space and access to the loft area over the workshop as well. The Workshop area is 1,600 sq. ft.
