Another nonsense about Home Farm selling land was that none of the other
farms in the village have tried to buy any of it. Both Brookfield and
Bridge Farm have money lying around. The latter might have to turn it
organic - but surely they probably could turn the leys organic quickly
and then they could use it for the fruit and nuts and not sell any of
the Angus herd.

Similarly Brookfield keep moaning on about the need for more milking
cows so could move their arable operations over to the new land and
expand the paddocks for grazing on the former arable land.

It does not make sense that none of them have shown any interest in
Brian's land.

I did wonder about the money Bridge Farm got for the land they sold
recently and whether they could buy Home Farm, but Brian is not
selling land, is he? Just the house.

he sold land back to BL Estate that he had bought from them (cheaply)
and was subsequently trying to sell other blocks - only one of which did
Kate object to selling as access was alongside Spiritual Home.

I cannot believe other local farmers would not have bit his hand off and
if Brookfield bought it then Adam would still be contracting.

The block which Kate objected to selling was the only one which Adam
would countenance selling. He made it clear that his objection to
selling any more productive land would be at least as vociferous as
Kate's objections to selling the land adjacent to Spiritual Home.

My recollection was that there were three blocks and Adam was happy to
sell all three as that provided enough money. Anything else he saw as
dangerous. The land to be sold totalled 300 acres. Adam warned Brian
selling off the 30 adjacent to Kate.

Accepted - but that plan was scuppered by selling the house and we have
not heard about the 270 acres being sold - which Brookfield or Bridge
Farm ought to have considered in whole or part - and which would be
local to both.

I thought the whole point of selling the house is that it meant they
wouldn't have to sell any further land. As you've said before, selling
good quality farm land is anathema to any serious farmer.

Does the Home Farm land abut either Brookfield or Bridge Farm or does the
Am intervene?
