Farm sale in rich Cork heartland

Views of the 61-acre holding and farmhouse for sale close to Cork City on the eastern side.

Hot on the heels of a couple of successful sales, including a public auction where 35 acres of land in East Cork made over €13,000 per acre, auctioneer Liam Mullins is now selling a working dairy farm at Watergrasshill.

Close to Cork City and at the heart of the East Cork dairy industry, this farm includes 54,000 gallons of Glanbia quota, and is laid out in an easily-managed block.

Centred round an traditional long house-style, farmhouse, with a range of modern buildings alongside, this 61-acre farm is an ideal addon to an existing operation, and has a very good land to quota ratio, which won’t be lost on buyers.

In six divisions, the property is paddocked, and accessed by a central roadway, and the house has a short laneway access from the main road. Road frontage is excellent, and the land bounds two roads.

In terms of its present layout, the property is immediately workable for farmers, and the farm is all in grass, with very large paddocks.

The yard, which adjoins the five-bed house, comes with modern buildings, including two cubicle sheds with automatic scrapers, two slatted sheds and a silage pit, amongst others. And there’s just under €10,000 per annum in entitlements, as an added sweetener.

The property is for sale by private treaty, and the guide price is in the region of €12,000 per acre.

It’s located within a mile of Watergrasshill village, on the Bartlemy road and is a short distance from Cork City. It will be interesting to see the per acre price made here, in light of recent sales for immediately workable dairy land.
