A 69ac farm with quality land and a strong dairying setup,is on the market near Timoleague in west Cork. The holding is at Maryborough and is being sold by private treaty by Henry O’Leary Auctioneers with a guide price of €1.2m.
The location is 3.5km from Timoleague, 4km from Kilbrittain, 13km from Bandon and 20km from Kinsale. This is an intensive dairy farming area.
The bulk of the land – 53.5ac – lies on one side of a public road. Two smaller blocks of 5ac and 10.5ac are on the other side.
Well laid out farm
This is an active dairy farm. As a result, the land is laid out in paddocks which are serviced by a central farm roadway. There are two wells on the farm with water laid on to each paddock. The fencing on the entire farm is in good condition.
The farm buildings are extensive, extending to over 24,000sq ft of covered space. They include 145 cubicles with automatic scrapers, calving boxes, 30 individual calf pens, a nine-unit herringbone milking parlour and extensive dry storage space.
According to the auctioneers, this is gentle-sloping, easily worked land and the farm is without waste. Prospective buyers can bid on this farm in lots.
The holding is under active bidding, which now stands at €18,500/ac, just over the guide price.
