Kilcow holding is ‘top quality’
'A real farmer's farm' is a phrase that's often coined as a selling point for land.
Tralee-based auctioneer Brendan Mannix insists it is perfectly apt when describing the 47.58ac holding in Kilcow, Castleisland that has just come on the market.
This area has a good productive reputation, with some of Kerry's best dairy farms and beef enterprises being located in the immediate area.
The land is offered in three separate lots and is guided at between €10,000/ac and €15,000/ac.
Plot A extends to 22ac and comprises the land surrounding the farmhouse and buildings. The land is described as top quality, free-draining limestone, divided into manageable paddocks and serviced by a central farm roadway. The river Maine to the north serves as a natural boundary.
Plot B consists of 17ac of similar land located directly opposite the main farm on a public cul-de-sac, half a kilometre off the Knockeen/Dysert road. The land is in one large, open field divided into paddocks and serviced by a central farm road.
Plot C is the remaining nine acres situated on the Knockeen/Dysert road. This is in one field that could easily be subdivided into paddocks for grazing.
"All the land is south-facing, of top agricultural quality, free-draining and very suitable for the best of modern intensive farming," Mr Mannix added.
