Cost-effective accommodation for Valley Produce’s seasonal workers

As a successful agricultural business, Valley Produce depends heavily on having the right onsite accommodation solutions in place for its seasonal workers. Bunkabin has been able to provide those solutions in a cost-effective way, resulting in a successful partnership that has now lasted for several years.

Based in Reading, Valley Produce is a specialist grower of herbs and speciality Chinese vegetable crops, growing produce across four sites in Berkshire, Hampshire and West Sussex during the UK growing season. It also supplies fresh goods all year round, making it important for them to always have the right facilities in place to support their staff.

In 2016, the company made the decision to replace all of the static caravans it had been using to accommodate seasonal workers, as well as increase their accommodation capacity at the same time. This represented a major investment, making it vital to find a provider who could offer value for money - a challenge that Bunkabin was able to meet.

HOW BUNKABIN HELPED

We initially supplied:

  • 10 Twin Junior Deluxe Units

This has now grown to:

  • 18 Twin Bespoke Sleepers

HOW WE DID IT

Valley Produce’s aim was to create a purpose-built site for its new worker accommodation, with hardstanding, sewage infrastructure and hook-up points for water and electricity. At a cost of £15,000, this represented a major investment, so the company required a partner that was able to deliver and seamlessly fit the accommodation units into this new infrastructure, without disruption or delay.

The owners of Valley Produce selected Bunkabin for the contract after seeing the brand advertised in the trade press and hearing about how our cabins had been successfully used on other farms. They quickly found that Bunkabin was able to provide them with the flexibility and value they were after, offering a reasonable cost of hire and high-quality units that met all of their requirements.

Since then, the site has been kept in good order, making it easy for Valley Produce to add and remove cabins according to seasonal demand, with Bunkabin working responsively to deliver units as and when they are needed.

THE RESULT

Bunkabin has now become a trusted partner for Valley Produce, helping the company to meet the needs of its seasonal workers year after year in a way that’s cost-effective and efficient.

Chris Daking, operations manager at Valley Produce, said: “We are really happy with the units and the cost. It makes managing our accommodation for up to 30 people on site a lot easier.

“We don't get many problems, but when we do, they are fixed straight away. We think they are far more cost effective than buying and maintaining static caravans.”
