There will be keen farmer interest in this large grassland farm with residence and sheds which has come on the market near Kilworth in Co Cork. The farm is 162ac in size, in one unit and located at Cronohill, Araglin. The area is about 4.5km from Kilworth and 12km from Fermoy.
The farm is being sold by Fermoy auctioneers Dick Barry & Son. Michael Barry said that about 150ac of the farm is good, level land and that the holding is suitable for conversion to a dairy farm.
The farm sits on both sides of a public road. One division is 110ac while the other – which is facing it – is the balance of approximately 50ac. The farm has over 300m of road frontage on to what is a quiet local road.
There are a large number of farm buildings. These include a six-bay hay barn with lean-to, a cattle crush, an old disused milking parlour and old buildings on a concrete gathering yard. Many of these sheds are from the 1970s and 1980s but they are servicable.
The old single-storey farmhouse is located beside the farmyard and in need of total refurbishment. It is approximately 1,000sq ft in size.
The holding comes with 58.83 EU direct payment entitlements with a face value of approximately €11,150.
The farm is being sold by private treaty and can be offered in lots. Michael Barry said that the guide price on the entire farm is €7,000-€8,000/ac. This is an executor’s sale.
