The Royal Highland Show (18-21 June 2015) is the perfect place to market new farms, says James Butler of Strutt & Parker.
James Butler says: “For the past few years we have purposely made June THE month to put new farms onto the market. The Highland Show brings farmers and those interested in agriculture from all over the UK and abroad together. We have a large stand overlooking the main ring which enables buyers to meet with us, establish what farms are available for sale now and in the next few months as well as discuss market conditions.”
Strutt & Parker have five farms that are already on the market, are launching six during June and a further five during the summer months. These range from 100 acres to 800 acres and are a mix of arable and livestock from all around Scotland.
James Butler continues; “In the first quarter of this year we sold six farms and all were purchased by buyers from outside Scotland. Scottish farmland is extremely good value and I envisage that there will be many visitors to the Highland Show who do not currently live here but may well intend to do so in the near future.”
