The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society (LAS) is pleased to offer to the open market the opportunity to occupy and farm Trafford
Farm, Carlton Le Moorland, Lincoln.

The farm has come into the society’s ownership through the generous bequest of the late Miss Sheila Trafford, after whom the
farm has been re-named. It was previously called Corner Farm.

The arable land holding extends to about 465 acres (188 hectares). In addition, there is the opportunity to rent a recently
renovated farmhouse which is currently let. It can be available as an optional extra, if required, at a declared rent of £1,400 per
calendar month exclusive.

The adjoining farmyard (excluding the redundant cattle buildings and forage buildings), being the traditional range of farm buildings and former grain store, is available to rent. Offers may also be made for parts of the farmyard.

The grass paddock of over 2 acres adjoins the farmyard and has access through it. It is available to rent separately or with the
adjoining farmyard and buildings, or part thereof.

The arable land is located around the village of Carlton Le Moorland.

The four bedroom farmhouse, the traditional range of buildings and a general-purpose building (a former grain store, that is no

It is anticipated that the farmland will be let under a Farm Business Tenancy for a period of not less than 6 years. This is
dependent upon the proposals and offers received.
