Dorset farms offered for 10-year lease

Two farms are being offered for lease as part of council plans to celebrate a milestone anniversary.

The Dorset County Farms Estate, which provides help to those wanting to start a farming business, celebrates its centenary in 2011.

The farms, near Shaftsbury and the Blackmore Vale, are available to let on a 10-year business tenancy from March.

Dorset County Council has managed its estate since 1911 and it now has 55 farms across the county.
