Lincolnshire tenancy

Trafford Farm was bequeathed to Lincolnshire Agricultural Society (LAS) by Sheila Trafford in 2015 because she supported the charity’s aims of educating the county about food, farming and a sustainable environment.  

The 465 acres of arable land surround the village of Carlton Le Moorland, between Lincoln and Newark and have grown potatoes, sugar beet and maize.

A four-bedroom house, yard with buildings and a paddock are available as optional additions, which would extend the holding to 477 acres.

Jane Hiles, LAS chairman, said: “This is a great opportunity for our charity and for young farmers in Lincolnshire and beyond.

“We hope to receive some interesting proposals from prospective tenants, which, as well as providing an opportunity to farm the land, will enable the charity to fulfil the late Miss Trafford’s wish that her farm support the education of young people in agriculture.”
