farm wanted
« on: September 20, 2021, 11:41:08 pm »
Hi.
I hope this is ok to post, please let me know if it is not.

This is a really tough post, to be honest with you, but we are in rather a dire situation. We have rented our farm for 15 years, which has enabled us to be where we are today with the buffalo dairy. Unfortunately, our landlady has decided to evict us in order to sell the farm we are now currently on. We have up until March next year to be off. We were promised a situation somewhere in England, share farm scheme, etc, however, this was swept away from us by the said people and now we have been left high and dry with nothing and nowhere to go. We are looking for anywhere really between 70-150 acres of good land, ex dairy farm would be nice although not necessary, there need to be good enough buildings on it, ideally a mix of traditional and modern, or modern. Does anybody know of anywhere/anyone looking to rent/sell?

Thanks so much

If you are willing to go anywhere in the UK, could you maybe contact Stevie in Fife who also has buffalo?  He just might know of somewhere with all his contacts.  You'd need to google him if you don't know him though

What's your budget and what sort of acreage are you after?  Are there any other specifications in relation to ground type/number of bedrooms/barns etc?  It may help us find something for you if we know what you're looking for.

We are looking for anywhere really between 70-150 acres of good land, ex dairy farm would be nice although not necessary, there need to be good enough buildings on it, ideally a mix of traditional and modern, or modern. Does anybody know of anywhere/anyone looking to rent/sell?
