Arable farmers looking for a decent Notts commercial cereals and roots farm have only a few weeks to make an offer for Debdhill Farm, Misterton.

The 400-acre unit, nine miles from Gainsborough, is being sold by joint agents Brown & Co and DDM Agriculture.

The closing date for informal tenders is 3 February.

Ken Pritchard of Brown & Co said the family of Michael Gagg wanted a quick sale after his recent death.

Mr Pritchard said the farm, which includes about 2000t of grain storage and a five-bedroom house, was sensibly guided at 1.5m. Almost 50 acres of the land are leased to a golf course for 4500 a year.

The farm had not been split because the central location of the house lent itself to a single lot, he added.
