Warwickdale Farm is a productive mixed arable and stock farm, extending to about 207 acres. The farm includes a four-bedroom farmhouse, a traditional courtyard steading and a range of agricultural buildings, including extensive winter accommodation for livestock and general purpose storage.
In addition to the fertile land, which is all in good heart, a particular feature of farm is the access to the fields provided by a network of minor public roads and private farm tracks. All fields are stock proof with hedging and post-and-wire fences.
All of the land has wholly non-LFA status.
Warwickdale is farmed in-hand as a stock rearing enterprise. The farm currently carries 60 spring-calving suckler cows, with all progeny finished on the farm. One hundred calves are also purchased annually and finished on the farm. There is winter accommodation for 400 head of cattle. Cattle are sold directly to the abattoir at Ayr and Saltcoats. The farm carried a herd of 140 milking cows until 10 years ago.
Two cuts of silage are taken annually. The farm is self-sufficient, growing its own spring barley and providing straw for home consumption, with reported yields of 2.5 3 tonnes per acre. A cropping history of the farm is available from the selling agents. The land benefits from regular applications of lime, farmyard manure and artificial fertiliser and there is an on-going rotational reseeding programme.
Warwickdale Farm has an accessible situation in one of Ayrshires most productive farming areas. The farm is equidistant from the towns of Irvine and Kilmarnock and is situated in the heart of the county.
