Full description

Church Farm together with Greenacre Lodge extends to approximately 672 acres lying within a ring fence to the south and east of the village. The land is predominantly under arable production with good sized and shaped fields for modern machinery, well served by a network of internal access tracks. The land is generally level but the amenity aspect has been enhanced by various shelter belts, woodland blocks and hedges across the farm and for those interested in nature, there is a small nature reserve lying just outside the boundary of the farm. The soils are of the Holderness series capable of growing high yielding arable crops with the wheat having averaged over 10 tonnes per hectare (4.15 tonnes per acre) over the last three years. The regular application of pig slurry from a covered storage tank situated on the holding has added greatly to the fertility. The attractive and well maintained Georgian farmhouse provides excellent family accommodation, adjacent to which is a range of traditional brick barns which may have potential for alternative use subject to planning. A grain store and insulated potato store are situated at Church Farm complemented by a second steading known as Greenacre Lodge where there is a two bedroom detached bungalow together with a 2,000 sq.m. steel framed building which has been used for grain storage and as a straw based pig fattening house for 700 pigs. The sale offers a rare opportunity to buy a large fully equipped commercial farm as a whole, however, the farm does naturally divide if purchasers require a smaller farm. Greenacre Lodge together with approximately 142 acres lying to the north of the Copper Hall access track could be sold separately together with the bungalow and building leaving Church @Farm at approximately 530 acres.
