Unique opportunity to acquire a substantial, fully equipped and productive dairy farm
Cavandarragh Farm is an outstanding dairy farm of about 317 acres in total, with extensive fixed equipment and productive land lying within a contiguous block. The farm includes a beautiful farmhouse of modern construction which is laid out in generous and elegant proportions and occupies an elevated position in the heart of the farm with far-reaching views. A site with planning permission and a derelict house provide opportunities to create additional residential accommodation.
The extensive farm buildings are a notable aspect of the farm and are principally laid out in two yards (Cavandarragh and Ratyn), with both benefitting from convenient access off the public roads. With winter accommodation for about 750 head of cattle and about 370 cubicles, the farm buildings include ample underground slurry storage and winter fodder storage. The yard at Cavandarragh Road includes the dairy complex with a 40:40 rapid-exit parlour and about 300 cubicles under a single roof, while the yard at Ratyn Road provides additional young stock accommodation and general-purpose storage.
The key feature of the farm is the land, including about 298 acres of ploughable ground which is in excellent heart and has been well tended to by the current owners. The farm was a winner of the Northern Ireland Silage Growing competition for four years in succession and has grown potatoes, maize, fodder beet, winter wheat and spring barley. The dairy herd is typically turned out to grass at the beginning of March until mid-November. It lies within a contiguous block and can be easily accessed from a number of public roads and an extensive network of internal farm roads and cow tracks. The fields are of a good workable size and layout, with the land gently rising from about 47 metres (154 feet) about sea level at the north of the farm and about 177 metres (580 feet) above sea level at the south of the farm. The current owners have made substantial investment and improvements to the land in recent years, in particular to the internal road network, fencing, drainage, water supply and reseeding.
Three biomass boilers have been installed at Cavandarragh Farm. Planning permission was granted in July 2014 (Ref: J/2011/0287/F) to construct an anaerobic digester with underground tanks, a 500kW combined heat and power plant and silage pits. The proposed project (to be situated at the Cavandarragh Road yard) was not developed and the permission has since lapsed.
The Entitlements to the Basic Payment Scheme are owned and are included in the sale.
Being offered for sale in up to eight lots presents an excellent opportunity for expanding farmers to add additional acres to an existing unit. Cavandarragh Farm also offers the extremely rare opportunity to acquire a fully equipped modern dairy farm in Northern Ireland which extends to over 300 acres and lies within a contiguous block.
The farm is offered for sale as a whole or in up to eight lots.
Strictly by appointment with Savills.
