Therefore the 210 acres of Staffordshire land near Seighford being offered on a 5 Year Farm Business Tenancy really does provide an excellent farming opportunity for someone.

Being let by H&H Land and Property, the majority of the land is suitable for arable cropping, and is currently a combination of productive grazing and mowing.

On announcing the details selling agent Matthew Bell of H&H Land and Property said:
“Usually when bare land such as this is offered, it is on a much shorter term and often only let on a grass park type of tenancy. So this five year FBT really does offer someone a unique opportunity to farm a sizeable acreage of land in an area where longer term tenancies are not so usual.”

Suitable for arable cropping, part of the land is entered into a 5 year Entry Level Stewardship Agreement, which commenced on the 1st November 2011. The remaining land is entered into a Countryside Stewardship Scheme, due to end on the 30th September 2014. The new tenant (s) will have both schemes transferred to them at the start of the tenancy

There are 84.78 hectares of non SDA Single Farm Payment entitlements which will be transferred free of charge, on the proviso that they are to be returned at the end of the term.

Anyone interested in taking on this tenancy should contact Matthew Bell at H&H Land and Property. The application process is through formal tender followed by one to one interviews.
