North Dorset farms to let

Finding the right premises can be one of the biggest challenges facing those looking to start or progress their farming career.  Renting a farm from the Dorset County Farm Estate however offers the opportunity to do just that.  Symonds & Sampson are currently offering three farms to let, all located at Twyford, near Shaftesbury and each offering a perfect holding for their business progression.

Dorset Council are inviting applicants with the drive to grow their farming enterprise to take on the farms.  They encourage those who will actively contribute towards the local rural community and economy, with a focus on employment in agriculture, making environmental improvements, increasing the farms sustainability and adding value to rural produce and commodities in whatever way the applicant sees best.

The farms range in size, each come with a farmhouse, one has an attached cottage, each have buildings and varying extents of land.  Located in a quiet and rural area, these farms could offer the ideal place for a variety of farming enterprises. All three farms are offered on 10 year Farm Business Tenancies and are to be let by application.

Drones Farm (below) is a 65 acre farm previously run as a livestock holding. Here, the Council are inviting applications from those seeking to establish or develop a rural enterprise. This open ended description leaves scope for somebody looking to diversify and do something a little different alongside their farming business.

Brach Farm (below) is set up as a fully operational 114 acre dairy holding, with the farm ready to start milking from day one of the tenancy.

Crockers Farm (main photo above) is a larger livestock holding extending to 142 acres, with an attractive Grade II Listed farmhouse with attached cottage, farm buildings and a ring fenced block of land.

Symonds & Sampson are holding viewing days at the farms on Thursday 7th April, followed by an application and interview process. Contact Greg Ridout or Charlie Andrews at our Yeovil office on 01935 382901 to book your appointment.
