Cork 72.5ac with quota is dairy gold
Ready-to-go holding, which includes extensive farm buildings, guided by auctioneer at €870k
There is an old joke told about the farmer who, when asked what he would do if he won the lotto, replied that he would continue to farm 'until it was all gone'.
This yarn goes some way to explain the deep connection between the farmer, his land and his job.
However, even those with the most tenuous connection to the land would be attracted by a 72.5ac non-residential farm with a 91,606gal milk quota located less than half a mile from Rosscarbery in West Cork.
The holding comes with extensive farm buildings and entitlements and the private treaty sale is being guided at €870,000 or €12,000/ac.
According to auctioneer John Hodnett, this is a very good quality dairy farm being sold as a going concern (but without stock).
The lands, which adjoin the Glandore Road, are of top quality and are laid out in large paddocks with road frontage on a number of sides.
The farm is supplied by mains water and a full electricity service.
