The Zagzag family has been raising egg-laying hens for decades and has several layer farms in the Galilee. The project includes 5 different size houses, located on a slope with a 15m height difference. Following the EU decision they decided to move into “non cages” system for the Barn House (hens on the floor) with a central egg collection system. Israeli poultry farmers do not get higher prices for cage-free eggs, and still the customer decided to invest in the Vencomatic Grando Castle system to provide his birds a better life.
