Farm sales still picking up

5:46 am on 21 November 2011

Farm sales and prices are continuing to pick up.

Figures from the Real Estate Institute show 286 farms were sold during the three months ending in October.

That's almost double the number sold during the same period last year and is also more than the previous three-month period.

The median price has lifted to almost $18,900 per hectare.
