Organic sheep farm on 70 hectares (170 acres) in stunning Haute Vienne countryside with 5-bed farm h

Limousin, Haute-Vienne

€530,000 ID: 146820
This superb sheep farm (currently with organic status) comes with 70 hectares of attached land, a 5-bedroom farmhouse (200m2 plus habitable), a below-ground swimming pool, 3 stone barns and a tunnel barn and is less than 1 km from the local village which has a popular bar/restaurant and is only 7 km from historic market town of Le Dorat (providing all facilities including schooling) in the north Haute Vienne. Le Dorat is the chosen location for the 2019 World Sheep Shearing Championship. The property is currently being run as an organic sheep farm but also could be considered for cattle breeding or indeed for horses. There is the possibility of buying the property with less land to meet specific project objectives. The farm comes with a renovated 5-bedroom farmhouse in good condition, three stone barns on the other side of the lawned garden (with in-ground swimming pool) and courtyard plus a tunnel barn for hay storage located about 500m away. 95% of the 70-hectare land package is attached to the farm buildings and includes a small lake, other natural water sources and about 800m of river frontage. The farm is currently operating with about 180 ewes but this could be easily doubled still leaving at least 10 hectares for growing cereals such as oats, triticale etc. for winter feeding purposes. Details of current subsidy levels can be provided on request. The farm already attracts good agricultural subsidies and there is scope to obtain environmentally friendly additional subsidies. The land has been managed with conservation in mind. The wild flowers, meadows and copses support a huge diversity of wild life including rare birds, insects, roe deer, red deer and wild boar. The property also has hunting rights.
