An “exceptional, well-equipped, productive, modern” residential dairy farm, extending to 365-acres in Wales, is new to the market.

According to the selling agents, Strutt and Parker, the current owners have been “continuously” improving Ty Mawr Farm since they took over management in the 1960s.

The farm is in a prime grass growing area of South West Wales. The agent highlighted that the region is renowned for its ability to grow grass with a relatively temperate climate and early ground.

According to the property firm, the area is “well suited” to grass production.

It stated that this listing is a “standout example” of a well-equipped commercial dairy farm with “well-designed” infrastructure to maximise production, ease of operation and cow welfare.

Lands

The land at Ty Mawr comprises primarily productive grass lays extending to about 160 acres, cropped with arable silage in rotation.

Furthermore, the property has a further 6-acres of permanent pasture and 25-acres of mainly deciduous woodland.

The agent said:

“The land is well served for access with frontage onto three public highways and a network of internal tracks.”

“There is a cow track leading from the farm building giving access to the main block of land to the east via an underpass under the public highway.”

“All of the grazing fields have water troughs connected to the farm’s private water supply.”

You can access the two off lying blocks of land at Cnwc-Y-Beili and Tyddyn from the main lot at Ty Mawr.

Both have access from the public highway allowing for easy management of these blocks.

These two blocks provide additional productive grazing and forage land and form an “integral” part of the current owner’s farming operation.

The current owners run a grass-based system, with arable wholecrop silage grown in rotation.

Some of the land has also, in the past, been cropped with maize for forage.

The blocks of land at Tyddyn and Cnwc-Y-Beili are about 1 mile south of the buildings at Ty Mawr. Besides, there is access from the public highway via a private track.

Farm bungalow

Ty Mawr Farm is “the farming base”, consisting of the farm bungalow (subject to an agricultural occupancy condition) and an “extensive” range of well-equipped modern farm buildings.

This includes a 50-point GEA Surge Westfalia rapid exit parlour and cubicle housing for 424 cows.

The bungalow is over split levels, with accommodation as follows:

  • An open-plan kitchen-diner;
  • Living room;
  • Conservatory;
  • Study;
  • Three bedrooms;
  • Family bathroom all on one level;
  • Further bedroom on a lower level and a bedroom with an en-suite on the first floor.

Attached to the bungalow, and accessed from the back hallway is a farm office and utility room.

Location

Ty Mawr is in three distinct blocks, with the largest lying to the east of the bungalow and farm buildings.

The two off lying blocks are about 1 mile south of the farm buildings and you can gain access via the public highway.

The landscape around Ty Mawr is gently rolling with broad, shallow valleys interspersed with blocks of woodland.

Ty Mawr is about 4.5 miles south of Newcastle Emlyn, which provides a “good” range of amenities.

Lastly, the port of Fishguard, to the west, provides a regular ferry service to Rosslare in Ireland.

The agent is seeking £3,700,000 for this property.
