World's 'largest’ farm up for sale
IT is believed to be the largest ring-fenced freehold block of land ever to be offered in the open market and it has now come up for sale - in Argentina.
The huge 989,000 acre (400,000ha) piece of land is in San Juan province in the north west of the country. It is currently on the books of Savills and joint agents Gateway to South America. The sale is on behalf of a multi-national family who have owned the land since the 1980s.
“The Estancia needs an investor who understands agriculture and has the capital to invest to bring the land into line with 21st century farming techniques. Not only will the owner have one of the largest farms in the world, but also will have added value far beyond the cost of the scheme,” said a spokesman.
