Business DescriptionThe demand to feed people is forever growing.
Opportunity to grow and supply large amounts of turkey meat to the market.
Permit obtained for 20,000 turkeys onsite.
This business grows and processes genuine free-range turkey from Bairnsdale in East Gippsland.
The business has a well established customer base and supplies quality free-range turkey direct from the farm.
This is via an extensive range of butchers across Australia, and at some of Melbourne’s best accredited farmers’ markets.
This is a family-run business that started as a hobby in 1982 with 100 Turkeys.
The business has continued to grow steadily with a current turnover of around 10,000 birds per year and a gross turnover in excess of $700,000 per year.
The business is small when compared to other commercial enterprises.
With an excellent reputation for quality turkey products and high animal welfare standards plus a new farm in progress, this business is set to take off.
High animal welfare standards and supplying the highest quality product are at the core of this business.
The quality approach of the business is built upon the following principles of free-range turkey growing.
The turkeys are:
• free to roam, explore and graze during daylight hours from the age of four weeks
• have shelter from sun, wind and rain
• are secured from predators to keep them safe
• have 24/7 access to clean, dry food and fresh water
• are free from growth-promoting hormones and antibiotics
• are processed on-site, ensuring that we have complete control of animal welfare, and transport of mature birds is not required, ensuring less stress.
A new 100 acre property is under development in a farming zone with direct highway exposure. Development of the new site is well underway.
The power is connected, a bore has been sunk, 2500 trees have been planted, a 400m driveway has been constructed, a large shed and new house have been built.
All appropriate approvals and construction plans have been obtained for the remaining work to finalise the new site.
Included is a purpose build processing plant, a shop to sell direct to the public and passing traffic, and the growing yards.
All this provides an excellent platform for the right person to build upon, and to grow a very successful business that is ready to become a household name.
