1500 acres from receivers

REFLECTING the change in farming fortunes, nearly 1500 acres now are on the market on behalf of the joint agricultural and fixed charge receivers of Deloitte & Touche.

Home Farm, Thorganby, near York, North Yorks, is guided at £3.25m for the whole by selling agent, Carter Jonas. Four properties, which will be available with vacant possession on completion of a deal, and a substantial range of modern farm buildings are included in the sale. More than 1m litres of milk quota is available separately.

A dairy enterprise supporting about 240 cows and followers was run on the holding until recently and the 1480 acres are classified grade 3.
