Kivells Farms and Land Agency are pleased to report an unprecedented number of sales since the autumn despite the general uncertainty surrounding Europe and what the future holds.

Utilising the unrivalled expertise of the whole team, the agency has successfully sold and sale agreed a number of farms and blocks of land whilst continuing to acquire large numbers of new stock.

Coldridge Barton completed at the turn of the year, an outstanding Barton Farm with 244 acres of highly productive pasture and arable land in a wonderful setting in Crediton, Devon. The attractive, Grade II listed, six bedroom farmhouse sold in excess of its guide price and included a substantial cob and stone barn and an excellent range of modern farm buildings with a superb run of pasture and arable land. Kivells Director, Mark Bromell, commented, “This super traditional beef and sheep farm attracted significant interest and sold considerably above the guide value to a progressive Devonshire dairy farming family within a very quick timescale.”

Additionally, the livestock was sold at Kivells Exeter Market and the Exeter team conducted an in farm machinery sale highlighting the diversity and experience at Kivells.
