The article reports on the sale of farmlands in Great Britain. The lifestyle buyer has had a few to choose from, particularly if they have a little imagination and are not afraid of a challenge, such as Lower Shelspit Farm, which is a smaller residential property requiring some improvements. Smaller blocks of bare land have gone well and we have been involved in a number of off-market deals at anything up to £8000/acre to neighbours. The continuing upward drift of prices is driven simply by there being more buyers than farms available.
