Needham and Rookery Farm, in Elm, is available to let from October next year. A viewing day for prospective tenants takes place on January 21 next year.

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for Resources and Performance, said: "These farms offer the tenants the chance to start their own rural business or to move up the farming ladder.

"The chance to take over a farm in the Cambridgeshire countryside is a rare opportunity and I'm sure there will be a lot of interest."
