Todrig Farm is located in an excellent mixed farming areaapproximately 2 miles south of Greenlaw and 6 miles north of Kelso and the River Tweed. The farm is beautifully situated in rolling Borders countryside flecked with woodland and commands magnificent views across the Tweed Valley to the Cheviots to the south east and to the Eildons to the west.
Todrig enjoys considerable privacy, yet lies within 2 miles of the A697 which provides direct access to both Edinburgh (36 miles) and Newcastle upon Tyne (71 miles), both of which have international airports. Additionally, there is a main line railway station at Berwick upon Tweed on the east coast route with direct connections to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.
The sale of Todrig provides the opportunity to purchase an easily accessible, well equipped, good quality, compact commercial arable farm affording considerable privacy in a lovely area.
The land lies between the 144m and 207m contours and has an average annual rainfall of approximately 750mm. Virtually all the land is classified as Grade 3.1 under the MacAulay Land Capability Plan and fields are large and well shaped with minimal waste. Soils vary, but in the main comprise friable, easily worked, free draining loams of medium constituency and limited stone content. Field drainage is generally good and soil indices have been maintained. Mains trough water is provided to three of the permanent grass fields, all of which are located adjacent to the farm buildings. The B6364 and a minor, unclassified public road run through the farm and these, together with internal tracks, provide hard access to the majority of fields.
The principal enterprise is arable cropping based mainly on winter wheat, winter oilseed rape, winter barley, spring oats and spring barley. 182 acres of spring wheat have been planted in 2012 following the unusually wet autumn. All the straw is taken by neighbouring livestock farmers and returned to the land as FYM for maintaining organic matter and fertility levels.
Additionally, a small enclosed Romney ewe flock is run on the permanent grass with all progeny taken through to fat. Both the arable and livestock enterprises are Quality Assured. The farm is unfettered by existing SRDP or renewable energy schemes and itis thought that there is potential for developing both.
The farm steading occupies a relatively level site close to the centre of the farm adjacent to all five dwellings. It includes a continuous flow grain drying system and on-floor grain storage for approximately 2,000 tonnes.
The Farmhouse is a detached timber framed bungalow built in 1984 on the site of the original farmhouse and commands outstanding views across the Tweed Valley to the Cheviots. Interested parties should note that there appears to be some prospect of obtaining planning consent for a larger dwelling if required on the area between the Farmhouse and No 4 Cottage.
The four detached cottages were constructed approximately 40 years ago and provide useful diversified income earning potential. No 2 Cottage is unmodernised.
The woodland extends to about 32.9 acres and comprises a number of distinct plantations scattered throughout the farm, most of which are stocked with semi-mature to mature scots pine, sitka and mixed broadleaves, principally beech and sycamore. The woodland is not managed and is of limited commercial merit. It provides some shelter and greatly enhances the farmís amenity and sporting potential. There are no Forestry Commission schemes in place.
The sporting rights are in-hand, but have not been exercised in recent years. The topography provides the scope for the establishment of a good driven shoot based upon the existing woodland together with the judicious planting of new woods and strategically placed game plots.
Additionally, there is a good resident stock of roe deer.
