Description

Boothby Lodge Farm is a high quality commercial arable farm within a ring fence, including an attractive recently built farmhouse at its core along with modern grain storage.

The current owner has invested significantly in the general
infrastructure of the farm, including the installation of new land drains under a significant proportion of the land. They have also enhanced the general amenity of the property with the support of an Entry Level / Higher Level Stewardship (ELS/HLS) Scheme.

The farm forms part of a wider farming business which has focussed on cutting edge farming methods, ensuring maximum efficiencies and exceptional soil husbandry.

The farmhouse was constructed in 2013 and comprises four bedrooms, two reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen, double garage, and a separate two bedroom annexe. The property benefits from a ground source heat pump and is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition.

The farmland extends to 1,525 acres (617 hectares) in total, with the majority of the land being in a combinable crop
rotation.

Local roads, along with farm tracks, provide good access to the whole farm. The land has been extensively under drained where necessary in the last 5 years and the fields are of a commercial size suited to modern farming methods.

The land is classified by the Agricultural Land Classification of England and Wales as being Grade 3. The soil map of England and Wales classes the soils as predominantly Ragdale which is chalky till, and Elmton 3 which is Jurassic limestone and clay. As part of the business' drive to maximise efficiencies and production, the soils are tested and mapped every 4 years to measure magnesium, phosphate and potassium indices and pH levels, allowing for Variable Application Rates across the farm.

The area currently in arable production extends to approximately 1,426.87 acres (577.45 hectares) with 31.85 acres (12.89 hectares) of pasture (some temporary) and 53.14 acres (21.50 hectares) of woodland.

Cropping has been based around a traditional cereal rotation of wheat and oilseed rape, with linseed and beans often also included in the rotation.

The farm is subject to an Entry Level / Higher Level Stewardship Scheme which runs until 31st December 2021.
