A Moulton Seas End farm with 395 acres of top quality agricultural land, an extensive range of buildings, and a solar scheme has been sold by private treaty through agents Savills Lincoln.

The farm was launched to market at a guide price of £6,995,000.

Names of the seller and buyer of Middle Farm have not been released and there are no details of the actual sale price.

Savills director and head of Midlands farm agency Andrew Pearce said: “Middle Farm, which had been in the same family ownership for many years, was one of the best holdings to have been offered to the market in recent times.

“The farm was almost entirely grade one, and was equipped with an extensive range of farm buildings which have been improved and renovated by the vendors.

“The property also benefited from a new solar scheme installed in December 2014.

“It is rare for a farm of this quality and with this level of fixed equipment to come to the market, particularly bearing in mind that land is tightly held in this area.”

Mr Pearce said the sale attracted interest from local and regional buyers as well as inquiries from further afield.

As far as Savills are aware, the land will remain in agricultural use.

Mr Pearce said: “It is very good productive, agricultural land and it has been bought because it is that and to farm it like that in the future.”
