SAVILLS is marketing a 12.5ha farm business that features an 18,500 sq ft former egg packing facility, three poultry buildings and accommodation close to Chard, Somerset.

The holding has a guide price of £2m.

Savills said Higher Buckland Farm, near Chard, Somerset, was a “superb poultry facility with extensive infrastructure as providing scope for other food-based, agricultural, commercial or equestrian enterprises”.

“The farm previously operated as a free-range egg enterprise with cleverly designed buildings finished to an exceptionally high standard,” the listing says.

“The main former egg packing facility also incorporates offices, a board room and further staff amenities over two floors.

‘Diverse and rare opportunity’

“Aside from the poultry buildings, there is a commercial workshop and further agricultural buildings, creating a totally diverse and rare opportunity to acquire a highly adaptable holding.”

In addition to the farm buildings, there are two dwellings on the farm and solar panels and a biomass installation.
