Extending to some 141.81 acres in total, the land is predominantly classified by the James Hutton Institute as grade 3:2 and is suitable for growing a wide range of crops. The land, which sits in an accessible location within rural Fife, is set out in two individual blocks with the land at Balbaird (lot 1) extending to approximately 47.37 acres and the land at Catherie (lot 2) extending to some 94.44 acres.
Agriculturally, the area is well provided for by merchants and dealers, with the land located in an area renowned for its productive arable land. The area of Fife is known for its spectacular landscape and also for being one of the most fertile farming areas in Fife.
The eastern field of lot 1, is currently let for broccoli whilst the remaining land is in spring cereals with the remainder being down to grass. However, the land is well suited for growing a wide range of arable, vegetables and other root crops.
Duncan Barrie, who is handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: "The land at Balbaird and Catherie is a highly productive arable block in a good central Fife location. Given the quality of the land on offer Balbaird and Catherie is a great prospect for local farmers keen to expand or to run separately from the home farm. The flexibility of two lots on offer will also attract investors looking for a smaller block of productive arable land with good access and close to amenities."
"As a firm we have been experiencing an active farm sales market since the start of the year with a number of sales across the country being completed as well as bringing a large number of properties to the market across the whole of Scotland."
