Rainthorpe fisher german preview

A Lincolnshire farming estate which has been developed over three generations of the same family has come to the market.

Leading rural agency Fisher German and Savills are marketing Rainthorpe Farms, one of the largest commercial farming enterprises on the outskirts of Lincoln.

Spanning over 3,204 acres, the farm is available as a whole or in seven principal and sub lots and is one of the largest commercial arable holdings to come to the open market in Lincolnshire in the last 20 years.

It is well served with residential dwellings and farm buildings, with grain storage facilities located within easy access of most of the major land parcels.

The farm has been developed over three generations of the Rainthorpe family, whose pioneering achievements include the strategic acquisition of farms and land parcels and a detailed investment programme of under drainage, field amalgamation to increase the scale and allow for extensive use of modern farm machinery techniques, the establishment of new grain drying and farm building facilities.

Robert Hurst, of Fisher German, said: “Rainthorpe Farm has a fascinating history and it is very rare to see something of this scale come to the market.

“It comprises a diverse commercial farming enterprise well serviced by extensive farm buildings and residential dwellings, including five cottages which are currently let on residential tenancies.

“Some of the field enclosures are now in excess of 200 acres in size, making them very efficient for the use of modern farming machinery.

“The farm is likely to appeal to purchasers looking to acquire an established large scale commercial arable farm or indeed to others looking to acquire smaller parcels of land as investments or to add to their existing holdings.”

The farm is located on the edge of the villages of Welton, Scothern, Snelland, Wickenby, Holton cum Beckering, Snarford and Faldingworth.

It focuses on traditional arable production systems, including cereal cropping with oilseed rape, sugar beet and potatoes, spring beans and peas, and over the years there has been a significant investment in increasing the efficiencies of the farm. 

Rainthorpe Farms is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in up to seven principal and sub lots, with a guide price of £25million in its entirety.
