Asking €10,000 per acre and €4,000 for the forestry

The mixture of good arable land and forestry is one that will surely tempt a wide range of potential purchasers of a 56-acre holding near the village of Bweeng in north Cork.
Asking €10,000 per acre and €4,000 for the forestry

The local area is traditionally a mixed farming zone with some arable farming, and an increasing amount of dairying activity.

But forestry always holds its own too, and while it may not be as lucrative as the faster-cash agricultural disciplines, it always provides sound long-term investment with a regular income.

The agricultural land makes up the bulk of this property, comprising 39 acres in total, and coming with the added benefit of an old farmhouse.

The road frontage is good and the location in the countryside but close to the village makes for an idyllic mixture for the hobby farmer looking for something a bit more substantial than the usual 10-20 acre holdings.

It’s currently laid out in pasture, with good-sized paddocks, according to selling agent Joe McCarthy of Irish & European, making it ideal for dairying activity.

The forestry, meanwhile, extends to 17 acres. It currently brings in an annual premium of €1,280, with two years of that remaining to be paid.

The asking price is a realistic €10,000 per acre for the agricultural land and €4,000 per acre for the forestry.
