Bowcock & Pursaill agricultural specialist Catherine Whittles oversaw the acquisition of a 25 year farm business tenancy at Sandon Estate for dairy farmers, Muir Farming Ltd.
Lucy and James Muir have been share farming in Lucy’s family farm for seven years and were interested in growing and expanding their business further.
When a 260 acre farm became available in April this year they needed a quick turnaround and through referral, contacted Catherine at Bowcock & Pursaill to oversee the contract from beginning to end.
Lucy commented: “Catherine advised us on the farm business tenancy agreement, the in-goings and outgoings for the tenancy, helped with stamp duty land tax and registering the tenancy with the land registry. She did it all in under a week, she was honestly amazing.”
Muir Farming Ltd, who are suppliers to Arla, hadn’t used Bowcock & Pursaill before. Lucy added: “Catherine has been fantastic, we will be using the firm for all of our requirements going forward. We had such a fantastic experience with them, we were just always on the same wavelength and got on so well.”
The quick turnaround in the move means Muir Farming Ltd is able to grow and expand further and Lucy and James can build their dairy farming business and settle into their new home with their young family.
