Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Farcet Farms is an outstanding commercial
farm currently growing onions, sugar beet and cereal crops. Potatoes have previously been included in the rotation until a change of farming policy by the vendors.

The soils are classified as Grade 1, 2 and 3 by DEFRA and are capable of growing a variety of crops including root crops, field vegetables and cereals. The farm has supported leeks and carrots in the past but these are not part of the current rotation. All of the land is under drained with well-maintained ditches.

The main stores are at Black Bush Farm where there is a refrigerated store for up to 1,400 tonnes of onions, an insulated store with a drying floor for a further 500 tonnes of onions and a grain store for 1,300 tonnes.

There are four sets of buildings at Yaxley Fen Farm for general purpose and grain storage. There is also a farm office in the centre of the farm, at Slotes Farmyard.

There are two irrigation reservoirs with ring mains at Holme Road Farm and Black Bush Farm with winter abstraction licences. There is also a summer abstraction licence for 106,058m3.

The Farcet Farms are situated in north Cambridgeshire, about four miles to the south of Peterborough between the villages of Yaxley, Holme and Pondersbridge. Peterborough provides local commercial, retail and educational facilities. The property lies in an accessible location, just four miles from junction 16 of the A1(M) motorway. There are train services from Peterborough to London (Kings Cross) in 51 minutes. Air travel is available from Stansted Airport or Connington Airfield.
