The boundaries are clearly bounded and fully stock proof with mains fencing around the entire perimeter. Furthermore, there are pipe drinkers throughout.

Presented in immaculate condition, the extensive yard which “forms the heart of the farm” features housing for 120 head of adult cattle, facilities for calves and ample feed and waste storage.

The buildings are laid out on a large concrete lot, and include:

‘Already established farm business’

This farm is presented to the market in excellent condition and offers a rare opportunity to the “forward-thinking farmer, young or more established”.

According to REA Peter Donohoe: “The location of the land, the fact that there is a pre-exisitng dwelling [currently uninhabitable] along with the extensive road frontage would allow for excellent residential site development [subject to planning permission].”

The farm at Egramush provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an “already established farm business”.

The property is for sale by private treaty in one or more lots. Price is on application and further information can be found online.
