It was only going to be a short term operation, clearing chicken sheds and onselling the manure.

“There is demand for it, especially in Virginia or really anyone that grows anything,” said Chris.
“I want to wind down but we keep getting more work.
“There was 15,000 cubic metres a year when I started… now it can be anywhere between 60,000 and 70,000 cubic metres a year.”
Their main role is to enter a chicken shed, once the birds have been removed to clear and then deliver the content to vineyard operators and cereal growers.
