A highly productive Grade 1 arable farm with a good set of farm buildings including two 500 box ambient potato stores and a water abstraction licence for 36,400 cm3 of water.


The farm is situated on the county border of Norfolk and Cambridgeshire to the north and south of Black Horse Drove.
The farm is located close to the market town of Littleport and offers a high speed train service to London in approximately 85 minutes.


Cold Harbour Farm presents purchasers with an opportunity to acquire approximately 497.31 acres (201.25 hectares) of prime Grade I highly productive land. The farm includes a two bedroom bungalow that lies adjacent to a range of farm buildings including ambient potato storage alongside additional machinery and general purpose stores. The land is versatile and has been exceptionally well farmed by Peter Rains who has sympathetically cropped the land in a rotation including potatoes, onions, wheat and sugar beet. Winter and spring barley along with dwarf beans have also been included in the rotation.
The land is classified as Grade 1 on the Land Classification Series of England and Wales. The soils are of the Downholland 1 series, these soils are characterised as being deep stoneless humose clayey soils and are capable of growing potatoes, sugar beet and field vegetables as well as cereal crops. A few years ago Cold Harbour Farms averaged a sugar beet yield of 115.77 t/ha.
The farm benefits from a summer abstraction licence providing extensive irrigation to the land. The licence permits 36,400 cubic meters of water for spray irrigation to enhance the ability to grow potatoes and other field vegetables on the land. The farm has been comprehensively drained throughout with ditches and outfalls being well maintained.
