Full description

Ideal opportunity available for an established lifestyle business or as a bolt on to an existing business, available for relocation only and servicing a client base of over 1000 clients close to Plymouth in Devon. Woodmeadow was established as a premier free range egg producer 16 years ago and has provided a relaxed and profitable lifestyle for our clients. The business is now only being offered for sale due to the retirement of the vendors.

The sale is unique as it is an asset sale comprising of 2 sectional buildings for housing the chickens. One house will hold up to 2000 birds, while the second will hold up to 1000 birds, both houses come complete with all feeders and nest boxes. The buildings are steel framed with wooden cladding and are in good condition. Currently the sale includes 2000 laying Lohmann Brown chickens, however the vendor is due to add 1000 chicks to this for future production. In addition, the business offers the current stock of eggs and the established business includes staff, vehicles and a regular client base of over 1000 clients who purchase weekly home delivery rounds.

Excellent scope exists as the vendors regularly turn down new work. The vendors are also offering full training and help to obtain the DEFRA standards for egg producers.

The business is being offered for sale by way of relocation only and a minimum of 1 hectare of land is required for the business and buildings. During the relocation the vendors will offer a 2 month lease to move everything and help to transport the livestock.

Woodmeadow offers several rounds within a 20 mile radius of Plymouth, Devon, therefore it is recommended that the purchaser is within the area, this is recommended but not essential.

The business would suit a landowner wishing to take over this business, a farmer wanting to diversify, or a competitor wanting additional stock, buildings and a well established outlet for the products.

This makes the potential here huge and will attract farmers, competitors as well as lifestyle clients and other business owners wanting a lifestyle change. A viewing therefore is highly recommended to avoid


Currently turnover averages at 105,000 per annum and is restricted to this by the vendors.

Full accounts and discussions on rounds will be made available to suitable candidates upon viewing.

The business is diverse and has no set hours for the production. The delivery rounds operate 5 days a week between 9am and 5pm.

The business is managed by the owners with 2 part time members of staff who run the rounds.

Property included within the sale are two purpose built hen houses being of steel construction with exterior wood cladding. These buildings would require relocation and are sectional built for ease of construction and dismantling.

The business is only available for relocation and an additional shed may be required for storing and grading the eggs. The equipment and the egg stock are included within the sale as are the delivery vehicles.

There is no residential accommodation for owners/management available.

We are advised that everything on sale will need relocating. The vendors are happy to lease the land for 2 months while relocation happens.

Woodmeadow offers a stunning opportunity to have a lifestyle business or an additional business readily established with good trade and unlimited scope to expand. A viewing is a must and highly recommended to understand the opportunity on offer here.
