“Farms of this size are not readily available in Meath,” says John Harrington of Smith Harrington auctioneers. This statement is fair. The majority of farms (almost 60%) that come to the market in Meath are under 40 acres.

So now that an 86-acre, top-quality arable farm in the village of Bohermeen is on the market, Harrington expects it to turn heads in the locality. You can’t really blame him for such expectation. The farm itself is high quality. All in one block, it is set out in seven divisions. Currently in oilseed rape, the farm was a beef farm until 10 years ago when it was converted to tillage.
