‘Plenty of potential in Ferns small holding’. Irish Farmers Journal. 29/02/24.

A Co Wexford holding with plenty of potential goes for online auction in late March

A c. 23ac holding wit derelict cottage at Ballyboy, Ferns, Co. Wexford was recently launched on the market by QUINN PROPERTY. For sale in late March, the lands are of excellent quality, currently in grass and are laid out in one block with a number of suitable divisions. The property has extensive road and river frontage. The house and yard are at the roadside and while alongside each together, they have seperate entrances.

A two-bay round-roof shed with a lean-to at either side is the main structure in the yard which also contains a disused milking parlour and dairy. Alongside these, there is a concrete yard with a cattle crush and dungstead.

There are plenty of options here. It has the bones of making an excellent hobby farm or small holding with a good array of farm buildings available. The fact the ground is in one block is also a major help.

Alternatively, this farm could serve as an outfarm, making it a tidy addition to an existing holding. It is a nice size of a heifer rearing and sileage production holding. The presence of the yard and livestock handling facilities are a bonus if that option is the future route this holding takes.

The 23ac at Ferns, Co Wexford

The derelict house should qualify for the Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant whether the purchaser chooses to use it as their principal dwelling or rent it out to a tenant.

The lands in north Wexford are a short distance from the village of Tombrack, Ferns is 6km away while Bunclody is a little further out at 10km. There is a guide price of €12,000/ac for this potential residential farm that sells at online auction at noon on Wednesday 27 March.
