We have a project which consists in raising hens for eggs in a cool temperate ocean climate (South of France) in an area which associate market farming and agroforestry. We are looking for some information about the number of hens we have to raise to be able to remunerate one person, paddocks size to provide enough food, …

Does anyone have a business plan for an egg-mobile system in order to raise hens for eggs in a Joel Salatin style ?

Thank you for your help

Bonjour Estelle

I have a spread sheet that I'm happy to share with you detailing hen numbers, food costs, egg production, and cost of goods sold.
If you plug in your numbers they should give you an idea about what you are dealing with.
It's not my sheet, someone gave it too me a while ago, and to be honest I haven't used it, but it's there if you want it.

If you want to send your email through a purple moosage, I'll send you the file.

We're in the Limousin, so not far away, I'd be interested in seeing what numbers you come up with as it could be very relevant to us.
Would you do that in return?
Being a smart alec beats the alternative. This tiny ad knows what I'm talking about:
