AF­TER 12 years of own­er­ship by the Con­nolly fam­ily, Bel­more is be­ing of­fered for sale in prepa­ra­tion for the next step to­wards re­tire­ment.

Bel­more was pre­vi­ously run in con­junc­tion with the other Eidsvold fam­ily prop­erty, Glen­coe, for fod­der pro­duc­tion util­is­ing the water and soils avail­able.
