Linton Wold Farm is situated in a private setting and presents a first class example of a Wolds farm with productive freedraining grade II and grade III land capable of producing high yielding crops. The large range of modern farm buildings offers the flexibility for a purchaser to establish their own enterprises on the unit.
The farm has been home to the prize winning Linton Priory beef Shorthorn herd and the Linton Gilbertines Aberdeen Angus herd. The Shorthorn and Aberdeen Angus heifers have been champions at the Highland Show in two consecutive years, a great achievement having only been breeding Aberdeen Angus for 5 years.
The herd gets its name from the former Priory which was situated at Linton Wold Farm in the 11th century and occupied by the Gilbertine monks and nuns, some of the old priory wall still remains.

The land at Linton Wold Farm is mainly classified as grade II and III on the DEFRA Agricultural Land Classification Map. Consisting of deep Wold soils of the Andover 1 and 2 series the arable ground is characterised by chalk with some flints, meaning the land is well drained and able to support some potato and root cropping production as well as high yielding cereal rotations. There are currently 96 acres of pasture although we understand that up to 500 acres has been cropped with cereals in the past.
