Offered for Sale
The lands of Slockmill and Damknowe are situated just west of the village of Drummore in the Wigtownshire area of Dumfries & Galloway. Slockmore & Damknowe are highly productive stock rearing farms in an area noted for its mild climate and long grass growing seasons which has contributed to the Rhins Peninsula being recognised as one of the most productive farming regions in Southwest Scotland. The agricultural land is at present either down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage)or stubble following a crop of barley (3 fields) . It should be noted that there is no dwellinghouses available with the land, however, Threave Rural are currently marketing Slockmill Farmhouse and Cheese Loft (under separate ownership), which my present the perfect opportunity for those requiring a dwellinghouse.
THE LANDS OF SLOCKMILL & DAMKNOWE
Slockmill & Damknowe Farms extends in total to about 253.67 acres (102.67 Ha), including the areas occupied by the steading, yards, access roads, clifftop, etc. The holding features 18 specific field enclosures, which with the exception of 3 fields which have had a crop of barley are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage), however many of the other enclosures are capable and have been, in the past, utilised for growing either cereal or forage crops. The land is classified as predominantly yield class 4 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The land is currently run as a beef rearing unit and benefits from the LFASS payment.
FARM STEADING AT SLOCKMILL
The farm steading comprises of a mixed range of both traditional and more modern farm buildings, which have been utilised in the past for dairy production.
BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS
The whole of the agricultural land has been allocated payment region 1, with the exception of 3.10 hectares, region 2.

The property also benefits from the standard Greening rates and where applicable LFASS. The sellers will use their best endeavours to complete the necessary documentation to transfer any and all established Basic Payment Entitlements.
