Bumper batch of farms launched across UK

A host of land and farms are on offer across the UK as the spring market picks up.

Farmland was slow to reach the open market this year due to uncertainty over Brexit and future subsidies, but with the proposed EU exit date being pushed back, vendors have been keen to make a start and assess demand.

Livestock, arable and mixed farmland opportunities from 27 to 2,078 acres have been launched in England, Wales and Scotland.
