Superb arable farm with a scenic outlook in the heart of rural Fife.
Montrave Home Farm is an exceptional arable farm set in a highly sought after and scenic area. The farm, which sits on the brow of a hill has a wonderful mix of land types with the majority of land being workable farmland. The farm is served by a useful range of modern farm buildings which are located at the centre of the enterprise. Extending to approximately 429 acres in total and it is conveniently located close the A916 which allows for easy access and travel to local towns and beyond.
The heart of the farming operation is the main farm steading which is accessed from the A916 via a farm road which is also shared with a cluster of houses. The majority of the land at Montrave lies to the north of the A916 with about 118 acres of gently rolling land lying to the south of the public road. The fields at Montrave are all of a generous size and capable of accommodating modern farm machinery.
In recent years the farm has followed a rotation plan combining a mix of cereal crops, oil seed rape and vegetables (peas, carrots and potatoes). The land within Lot 1 can be irrigated (subject to obtaining the necessary water abstraction licence). Along with the arable ground there are mature woodland areas providing shelter and wonderful amenity space on the farm.
