An opportunity has come along for someone to rent a North Nottinghamshire farm for three years. Beechwood Farm in Ranby near Retford is looking for a tenant with a keen interest in sustainable farming.

The farm is up for rent with estate agent Savills and can be rented on a Farm Business Tenancy. Situated on the Morton Hall Estate, the 223 acre farm currently operates well as an agricultural farm comprising eleven core fields classified as Grade 3 within a ring fence block.

The landowner is looking for a more sustainable approach to farming and has set out a number of plans for Beechwood Farm. These include moving away from arable rotations and developing a sustainable farming system through a regenerative agriculture approach.

The sustainable plan also includes protecting and enhancing the soils of the farm and undertaking Nature Friendly Farming to increase biodiversity across the farm as well as providing well managed, wildlife rich areas that complement the natural habitats across the estate.

Martin Borley, associate in the rural team at Savills, is letting the farm on behalf of the Morton Hall Estate. He said: “The successful applicant will have an interest in regenerative farming and will be enthusiastic towards developing a sustainable farming system, whether that is a stand-alone enterprise or a bolt-on to their existing operations.

“It is rare for the tenancy of a fully equipped farm with potential long-term prospects to come to the market and it is also a fantastic opportunity to develop a sustainable rural enterprise.” The tenancy will be for the term of three years commencing from September 30. The land is to be let by informal tender, details of which can be obtained from Savills, Lincoln office.
