Cafo Barn Challenge

Posted by elizabethgreene 37086 (My Page) on

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,

RE: Cafo Barn Challenge

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.
