CLOSING DATE SET FOR WEDNESDAY, 20TH JANUARY 2021 AT NOON.

DESCRIPTION
Chapel & Underwood form an excellent single dairy unit extending to approximately 327.54 Acres (132.55 Ha) in total, with 316 or thereby IACS registered acres. The farms are situated in the Tarff Valley, an area renowned for its early grass growing season. They lie between 10m and 90m above sea level. It is situated in a very accessible location just to the south of the A75 near Ringford village. Both farms have 3 Bedroom Cottages adjacent to the steadings. The holding benefits from an excellent range of modern and traditional farm buildings in two adjacent locations.

The farmland is situated in one block and access is given to all of the fields from a network of farm tracks or direct from the public road. All fields are presently in grass. With reference to the James Hutton Institute Soil Capability Maps for Agriculture the land is predominantly Grade 3:2 to Grade 5:2, with much of the ground improved for silage mowing.

The farms were historically 2 holdings, now combined for the purposes of running the large dairy unit. There is additional silage ground and a slurry lagoon available to rent, should the buyer wish to milk the dairy herd at capacity. There are presently 430 cows on an easy feed silage system with cake fed in and out of parlour. At least 50% of cows are grazed April to October.
