Welcome

Welcome to the website of Cumberland & Dumfriesshire Farmers’ Mart plc (C&D). We very much hope that you will visit our website on a regular basis and that you will find it informative; should you have any comments whatsoever about our website’s content, please do not hesitate to contact us.

C&D has been involved in livestock auctioneering and marketing since 1926 and Longtown Mart has grown over time to become Europe’s largest centre for the sale of sheep. Dumfries Mart was acquired under lease by C&D in 2000.

As a company, C&D’s aim is to provide our farming customers with a leading livestock auctioneering and marketing service; consignors of livestock and buyers come from across the UK to our weekly, fortnightly and special sales. We always seek to “put our farmers first” in everything which we do.

Complementing our mart operations, C&D runs a professional land and property division, providing personal and comprehensive advice and support to our clients; our services include sales and lettings of agricultural and residential properties, valuations, estate management and compensation, planning and grants work (and much more).
