West Trailtrow Farm is situated about 4 miles from the town of Annan and the A74 (M). The property occupies a rural location and benefits from stunning panoramic views to the Solway Firth and towards the Lake District.

This exceptional dairy farm benefits from an extremely well-presented traditional farmhouse, which has been sympathetically modernised and improved greatly within the current ownership, yet retaining many original features. The farmhouse is enclosed within its own beautiful garden grounds, which are laid to lawns with a variety of mature shrubs and specimen trees along with a small orchard and a productive vegetable garden.

The farm is equipped with modern and traditional farm buildings, 16/32 Herringbone parlour and about 191 acres of agricultural land. The agricultural land is down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage or hay), however the land is capable of growing a wide range of cereal and other forage crops.

The steading buildings are a mixture of modern and traditional construction and have in the past housed the dairy herd. It should be noted that milk production ceased in 2019, however, all milking equipment is run on a regular basis. A numbered aerial plan of the steading is contained within these details.

THE LAND
West Trailtrow extends in total to about 196.67 acres (79.59 Ha), including the areas occupied by the farmhouse, steading, yards, access roads, etc.
The holding features 15 specific field enclosures, which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage), however the majority are capable of growing cereal or other forage crops. The land is classified as predominantly yield classes 3:1 and 3:2 with a small amount within class 4 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The farm is self-sufficient in home grown forage and capable of any type of livestock production or cropping.

BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS – IACS / SAF
The whole of the agricultural land has been allocated payment region 1. We are advised that the vendors are active farmers (as currently defined under EU Regulation 1307/2013 and the Scottish Statutory Instrument 2014/58). We are further informed that the sellers completed an IACS/SAF submission 2020 (a copy of which can be made available for inspection from the sole selling agents during normal office hours).

West Trailtrow benefits from 78.11 units of region 1 entitlements with an illustrative unit values of €160.66 (Euros). The sellers will use their best endeavours to complete the necessary documentation to transfer any and all established Basic Payment Entitlements.

For the avoidance of doubt any such payments already applied for prior to the completion date, will be retained by the sellers, i.e. the 2020 Basic Payment and 2020 greening payment.
The purchaser upon occupation of the subjects of sale will be required and be responsible to comply with the statutory management requirements and good agricultural and environmental conditions, as laid down within the cross compliance documentation 2020, this obligation expires on 31st December 2020.
