    Hay Farms is a family owned, managed and run broiler chicken and turkey farming business, with the family owning and operating sites from South Wales to North Yorkshire.  The business continues to see significant growth on the back of customer requests for them to increase their farming capacity. This success is a testament to the team that cares for and farms the birds every day and the company is looking to grow their talent base further by bringing in more key team members.  The Hay Farms' team is led by three brothers, all of whom are Harper Adams graduates.

    • A significant contribution towards their education of £3,000 in the year prior to placement.
