Two commercial poultry farms in Somerset have been put up for sale through property consultant Carter Jonas.

Millford Farm and Knaplock Poultry Farm in Somerset are being offered for sale with a combined guide price of £4.9m.

The broiler farms have a combined capacity of 240,000 birds and were launched to the market on 2 April 2024.

Millford has a guide price of £2.6m and is fully equipped with a detached modern farmhouse and four poultry buildings with capacity for 119,000 birds.

Two of the buildings are 19,200 square foot steel portal framed buildings constructed in 2016 and there is planning permission for the erection of another identical building on site. In addition, there are two 12,900 square foot timber framed with insulated steel cladding and composite panel insulated steel profile sheet roofs.

The farm also has a biomass boiler, solar panels, and associated income from the Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI) and Feed-in Tariff (FiT). Permission has also been granted for an additional fifth poultry building on the six-acre site.

“Not only does this holding provide a fantastic opportunity for poultry farmers to grow their operations, but through the RHI and FiT they will gain additional income on top,”​ said Carter Jonas partner Jack Mitchell.

“Millford Farm is situated at the foot of the Quantock Hills area of outstanding natural beauty, a short distance from the town of Bridgwater and the rural centre of North Petherton.”

Meanwhile, Knaplock has been offered for sale with a guide price of £2.3m and is another commercial holding serviced by a detached bungalow, large office and double garage with flat above. It also includes five poultry buildings offering growing space for up to 121,000 birds.

The site extends to 4.38 acres and has a biomass boiler and solar panels. A 650kW boiler generates a RHI payment of circa £53,000 per annum, while there is also a 50kW solar array on the roof of one shed which was installed in 2015, earning about £6,000 per year. 

Knaplock is situated between the villages of Fiddington, Stogursey, and Combwich.
