Cafo Barn Challenge

elizabethgreene(7)April 4, 2013

Good Afternoon.

I'm considering purchasing a 10 Acre farm that has two CAFO chicken barns on it. One is 50x500, the other is 36x300. I have zero desire to be a contract chicken farmer. The house, price, and location are great; but CAFOs are generally incompatible with my universe.

Aside from scrapping them, any suggestions on what I could use or recycle these into? The sheer size of them boggles my mind.

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

What does CAFO stand for? Does it indicate what these buildings are made of? Can you dismantle them and reconfigure them into hoop houses or greenhouses.
