Director, S A & D E Dixon

Stephen Dixon is a Director at S A & D E Dixon, a DEFRA licensed business in Shropshire originally established as a rearing farm for broiler chickens, which has since branched out into key product supply for other poultry farms.

Career Overview

Originally established in 1996 as a rearing farm for broiler chickens, SA & DE Dixon Ltd have since expanded into supplying other farms with all of the products they require to function. 

It was Stephen's own experience trying to source key products, including vitamins and bio-security equipment, which helped the business find a new niche in the market in 1998. SA & DE Dixon now caters for farms across the UK, from cities in the southwest such as Bristol all the way to the northeast to places like Pontefract.

Licensed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs [DEFRA] to transport and store used chemical containers, Stephen and his business are able to provide a complete service for their clients, picking up used packaging as they drop off their replacements. 

Pullet production remains the backbone of the rearing side of Stephen's business, however he has been vocal about the difficulties surrounding increasing rearing capacity in the region of Shropshire, where gaining planning permission can be troublesome.
