High Demand and Premium Prices Define the Current Farm Sales Market

High Demand and Premium Prices Define the Current Farm Sales Market

Demand for land remains high across the rural property spectrum, from standalone, working farms right through to small parcels and pony paddocks.

In coastal Angus, prime arable land can reach up to £20,000 per acre, reflecting the area’s high yielding soils for crops, fruit and vegetables. Secondary arable and temporary grassland prices have seen slight increases over the last two years, while poorer quality parcels remain stable.

Our Farm Sales specialists in Scotland are experiencing high demand for our services this season for a variety of reasons including unpredictability in the industry and many farmers looking to their primary asset for retirement funding.
