At the end of the First World War the Board of Agriculture for Scotland compulsorily purchased land at Foulden, Mordington and Lamberton to form smallholdings for occupation by returning servicemen. Greenlaw Farm is one of only two remaining smallholdings owned by Scottish Government and is now being offered for sale.
Although the land has been in grass for a number of years, Greenlaw Farm lies on productive land and is very capable of being farmed in an arable rotation. The sale presents an opportunity for the expansion of an existing farming enterprise, or alternatively, is the ideal property for those with lifestyle or equestrian interests.
The land lies between the 60 metre and 80 metre contours and is predominantly south facing with an average annual rainfall of approximately 700mm. All fields are classified as grade 3.1, with the exception of field 1, which is classified as grade 2. The soils comprise deep, fertile, relatively stone free clay loams of the Whitsome Series and are well suited to the consistent production of high yielding cash crops, particularly winter wheat.
Greenlaw Farm is offered for sale in two separate lots or as a whole, please contact us for further information.
Lot 1: 24.81 acres (10.04ha) to include farmhouse, farm buildings and 21.10 acres arable grass.
