Search launched for tenant to take over fully equipped 550-acre Lincolnshire farm 

A fully equipped farm in Lincolnshire is looking for a new tenant. The arable farm owned by Crown Estate is available to let through national property consultant Carter Jonas. 

College Farm owned by Crown Estate has been available to let through national property consultant Carter Jonas.

College Farm, which comprises 550 acres of first-class silt soils, is ring-fenced and situated immediately inland from the New Sea Bank on reclaimed grade 1 soil at Frampton, near Boston. 
A 15-year farm business tenancy is on offer for the successful applicant, who must submit an informal tender to national property consultancy Carter Jonas by noon on 12th July. 

Excellent condition 

Malcolm Burns, head of rural for the Crown Estate, said: “College Farm is in excellent condition, and maintaining and enhancing soil health is of particular importance to us.  

“We expect the successful candidate to adopt a fully integrated approach to soil management, and to fully embrace best in class environmental land management practices for the duration of the tenancy.”    

The arable holding is available with a comprehensive range of farm buildings including more than 3,000 tonnes of grain storage, two 500-tonne cold stores and drying facilities. There are general purpose workshops, traditional buildings and a farm office. 
No farmhouse is included but three cottages may be available by separate negotiation following refurbishment this summer. 

Longer-term plans 

Alex Morter, associate partner at Carter Jonas, added: “This is an incredibly rare opportunity to take on quality rented land at such a significant scale. 

“The length of tenancy will also be attractive, allowing the new tenant to plan for the longer term. 
“We would expect to see keen interest in College Farm from a range of business, given the versatility of the land and how infrequently tenancies of this nature become available.” 
Interested parties can contact Alex in Carter Jonas’ Cambridge office for an information pack.
