General Description
The land at Hay Farm, Neenton, represents a rare opportunity to invest in a large block of ring-fenced agricultural land in the heart of the South Shropshire farming scene. Such large blocks of productive land seldom come to the market and in an industry where economies of scale are starting to play a major part in the profitability of farming businesses, the sale offers a fantastic opportunity for those looking to expand their existing agricultural enterprise.
The land comprises approximately 162.96 acres (65.95 hectares) of predominantly arable land with good access off the B4364 Bridgnorth to Ludlow road via a recently improved farm track. Bound by a mixture of woodland edge, maturing hedgerows, stock-proof fencing and brook bottoms, the land is currently set out in a single enclosure but is neatly sub-divided by the access track which leads up to a former farmyard site where a useful steel framed and brick clad farm building can be found. The land is undulating in nature and comprises a slightly acidic loamy and clayey soil with impeded natural drainage but moderate to high natural fertility. Of the 162.96 acres, approximately 147.46 acres comprise productive arable land with the remainder made up of 2.50 acres of pasture and 13 acres of woodland, woodland edge, tracks and the former farmyard site. The land has been classified as Grade 3-4 on the Provisional Land Classification Maps and is currently in arable rotation.
