A productive block of good quality farm land in an accessible location. In all about 234.70 acres.
Minchins Farm represents an attractive investment opportunity to purchase a productive block of high value farm land in mid-Essex located immediately adjacent to the A120 dual carriageway, linking Essex to Stansted Airport and the Midlands and also the east coast.
The land is a compact block of mainly arable land lying to the south of the A120 dual carriageway and to the west of the B184 road to High Roding and Chelmsford.
The land is classified by DEFRA as Grade 2 with the soil type being a combination of Ludford, Hanslope and Stretham soil series being deep well drained loam. The land is registered for the Basic Payment Scheme and the relevant entitlements will transfer with the sale.
A typical crop rotation of the land includes winter wheat, winter oats and beans. The land has consistently produced yields of about 3.75 tonnes per acre for wheats. The land is understood to have been drained but no plans are available.
A by-way divides the field OS9216 to the west with access being provided via a gateway adjacent to the A120 and an access track into the field.
A post and rail fence along the line AB will be erected by the outgoing tenant after completion.
