Dairy and arable farms make up summer land market

Dairy and arable farms make up most of the summer launches roster, with one Welsh tenancy opportunity also joining the market.

The bulk of this year’s sales options was delayed until early summer by lockdown restrictions and supply is still limited by the pandemic’s uncertainty, down 50% on the year according to Farmers Weekly’s land tracker.

With demand higher than ever, some vendors are still happy to make a move – here is a selection of what’s on offer in the UK farmland market.
