Both the Poultry Pages and Allotment Garden contain ‘shops’ which are linked to site partnering affiliate merchants. There is also specialist bookshop utilising Opencart and a section selling the site owners own books.

Both sites also contain diary blogs and Allotment Garden has a large recipe section which is actually a WordPress blog along with a video section that is also based on WordPress.

Much of the site is hard written utilising php for included menus but these are in the process of being transferred to a WordPress based CMS. The whole site is in the process of being re-skinned to a responsive design.
