The family that does business together stays close and enjoys financial freedom together. The poultry farm business of the Sevilleno family started in 1992, managed by both of their parents, who at that time started with breeder chicken. The business ran under contract with an Integrator, which they thought was easy and profitable until, in 2012, they changed into the Layer business with an initial stock of 9,000 heads.
This time, their son Eric, an Animal Science graduate, took over the management of this business. When the same business in Cebu was severely affected by typhoon Yolanda in 2013, the volume of eggs in the region was affected. This situation allowed the family to increase their layer stocks to meet the demand of eggs in Western Visayas. From that time on, their layer business progressed, having a population of up to 50,000 layers and continue to progress up to today.
Double A Poultry Farm got its name from the initial letter A of Eric’s two sons. Though he was noted as a tough, hands-on, and a micro-type of manager, he has a significant and soft heart for those who are in need. He offered jobs for those residents in their area and provide them just compensation. Some would sell eggs from their farm on a consignment basis and would pay later of the day, which much helped the residents in the community. He would undertake his social responsibility by sharing resources with schools, churches, and the community. Likewise, the sponsors’ students as scholars so that when they graduate and land a job, they could help alleviate the standard of living of their families.
Being an alumnus of the University of Negros Occidental Recoletos – Agriculture Department, he offered his farm as a venue for the On the Job Training (OJT) of agriculture students where they could learn the nitty-gritty of managing a poultry farm.
Passion, perseverance, and prayers are the secret of Double A Poultry Farm of what they have achieved today!
