New County Farms Available in Cambridgeshire
« on: January 18, 2013, 11:27:16 am »
Cambridgeshire county council (who we let our smallholding through) have asked us to pass on details of their new tenancies to anyone we feel might be interested. I think they are looking to diversify the county farms away from traditional arable farming so any ideas you have for what you might use the farms for would be welcomed!

The farms becoming available are:

- Marshalls Farm, Farcet - 98 hectare arable with house and buildings
- Kings Farm, Horningsea - 63 hectare arable holding with a 28,800m3 capacity reservoir, house and building
- Flaggrass Hill Farm, March - 34 hectare arable holding with buildings
- Alley Farm, Wisbech - 52 hectare arable holding with bungalow and building
- Needham Farm, Elm - 32 hectare high quality bare land holding. May be available in two lots.
- Rowells Farm, Warboys - 108 hectare holding with a large detached house and buildings.
- Selwyn Lodge Farm, Wisbech St Mary - 44 hectare bare land holding.
- Betty's Nose Farm, Benwick - 3 hectare holding with a semi detached house and buildings. Potential for non agricultural use.
- Vector Farm, Elm - 6 hectare arable holding with house, but no buildings
- Church Farm, Quy - 1 hectare arable holding with house. Buildings may be available.

For more details go to:

If anyone has any questions about the application process let me know and I can answer any questions having been through the process recently myself!
