The farmland in all extends to about 74.80 hectares (184.83 acres) and the sale includes a four-bedroom, one and a half storey farmhouse with a private garden. The farmhouse was built in 1910 with has a more recent extension. Duncan Barrie, head of the firm's National Farm Sales team in the Stirling Office, said:
This sale offers an attractive combination of well-maintained and diverse farm buildings, a spacious farmhouse, and productive block of arable and pasture land.
The farmland has historically been split between a mix of cereal and winter vegetable production with grass leys used for fodder and grazing by the famous Carlhurlie Angus herd which was established in the 1990's and was housed at Annfield. There are a number of high-quality farm buildings on the unit and a purpose-built cattle handling system which is all in excellent order and ready for use.
Traditionally this area of Fife is known for its fertile land, capable of producing high yields of an extensive range of crops. The surrounding area is well supplied with agricultural merchants and machinery dealers and the surrounding countryside is appealing, with rolling hills and the nearby coast.
The farmland is well suited to growing a wide range of arable crops including barley and wheat, as well as potatoes and other winter harvested vegetables. The remainder of the holding is comprised of productive pasture ground with several small areas of woodland located throughout, providing shelter and suitable for amenity use.
The location of Annfield Farm is private but accessible, with Cupar, St Andrews and Kirkcaldy about 30 minutes away by car. The pretty East Neuk villages of Anstruther, Pittenweem, Elie and Crail are just a short distance to the south east.
