72-Acre Golden Vale Farm for Public Auction

It’s a non-residential roadside holding 1km east of Herbertstown village, near the Limerick-Tipperary border.

“These are top-quality limestone lands,” says Tom Spillane. “They’re laid out in seven manageable divisions.”

Although the farm is billed as non-residential, it has the remains of a derelict cut-stone traditional homestead, along with outbuildings in a similar condition, so it has potential to become a residential unit if the next owner so desires.

Probably more likely is a progressive dairy farmer (of which there is no shortage in this neck of the woods) acquiring it to extend their holding.

The access to the land is excellent, and the selling agents say there is extensive frontage onto two public roads.

The price guide is €10,000/acre.

With milk prices once more on the move, one wouldn’t be surprised to see it go substantially higher on the day.
