Choice of equipped farms and bare land in plentiful market

A wide selection of mixed farms, estates with alternative income options and blocks of productive bare land are on offer across Great Britain.

The spring farmland market has opened with a surge, as many agents predicted after the stalled and uncertain landscape of a coronavirus-hit 2020.

Already the publicly marketed acreage is up 105% on this time last year, according to Farmers Weekly’s land tracker.

Here’s a collection of what’s available.
