The owners of Willow Wharf Farm had the most ridiculous trouble with planning "jobsworths" when they wanted to start producing free range eggs and organic vegetables on very rural land already completely in use for agricultural purposes.
Happy Girlie Hens really did look content as we passed in October 2009.

Three weeks later 180 hens were stolen by the low life of our society. No doubt we taxpayers will be paying lawyers lots of cash to defend these rats when they are caught, in order to appease the "human rights" bleaters who don't know when to mind their own business.

The following text is reduced from the website of the planning consultants needed to deal with the bureaucracy:

Mr & Mrs R purchased Willow Wharf Farm to establish a poultry business producing Organic Free Range Eggs. They were advised by the Local Planning Authority that planning permission would be required despite the existing agricultural use of the land. A subsequent application was refused followed by the threat of Enforcement Action.
A somewhat worried Mr. R contacted Simon Associates and the matter was quickly resolved allowing Mr. R to continue with his poultry enterprise without future interference by the Authority.
Happy Girlie Hens are now producing exceptionally fine Organic Free Range Eggs at Willow Farm. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
