ABSTRACT
The article announces the sale of the Begerin Estate at North Slob in County Wexford, Ireland. According to Sarah Macdonald-Smith of Strutt & Parker, the property was being sold by a cooperative of farmers from another county and offered huge potential. She said the farm, which had been run as a beef and dairy unit when it was bought 20 years ago, was now mostly under cereals, but had the capability to grow higher-value vegetable crops.
