Carter Jonas has announced that 550 acres of Grade 1 arable land has come up for tenancy on the Crown Estate, Lincolnshire.

College Farm is a ring-fenced unit, situated inland from the New Sea Bank and is on reclaimed Grade 1 soil at Frampton, near Boston.

A 15-year farm business tenancy is on offer, with applicants asked to submit an informal tender to Carter Jonas by 12pm on the 12th of July.

Malcolm Burns, head of rural for the Crown Estate, said: “College Farm is in excellent condition, and maintaining and enhancing soil health is of particular importance to us.

“We expect the successful candidate to adopt a fully integrated approach to soil management, and to fully embrace best-in-class environmental land management practices for the duration of the tenancy.”

The holding includes over 3,000 tonnes of grain storage, two 500-tonne cold stores and drying facilities. In addition to this, there are workshops, traditional buildings and a farm office.

While no farmhouse is included, three cottages may be available by separate negotiation following refurbishment this summer.

“This is an incredibly rare opportunity to take on quality rented land at such a significant scale,” says Alex Morter, associate partner at Carter Jonas. “The length of tenancy will also be attractive, allowing the new tenant to plan for the longer term.

“We would expect to see keen interest in College Farm from a range of businesses, given the versatility of the land and how infrequently tenancies of this nature become available.”
