- 715.4 acres (289.5 hectares)
- farm infrastructure and housing
- water consent for 63 litres per second
- 289ha property with five soil types and a balance of contour
The versatility of this farm is the key - with just over 100ha irrigated from a very good consent, coupled with quality soils on the flats, which provides plenty of options for the new owners.
This 289.52 hectare property has five different soil types, all represented in the four main forms of contour, which provides the property's versatility. There is around 45 hectares of south-facing tussock hill for good sheep and cattle summer grazing, around 130 hectares of gently rolling improved hill and very valuable Mayfield silt loam irrigated flats, supported by some lighter soils suited for lucerne, and riverbed grazing.
Soil tests are strong, the irrigation water consent of 63 litres per second from the Hurunui River is a real feature, the fencing standard is high with excellent lanes, good shelter belts, plenty of reliable stock and house water, a top class woolshed, covered yards, cattle yards, shedding and a renovated three-bedroom cottage which is currently rented. The large, modern four-bedroom homestead is positioned perfectly for sun on an elevated site affording uninterrupted 180 degree views over the farm, the Hurunui River and vast countryside.
Current land-use consists of wintering dairy cows,fattening cattle, breeding ewes and fattening lambs, plus barley, hay and baleage production. There is over 11km of new fencing and an excellent history of fertiliser and re-grassing. This is an easily managed, well-balanced farm.
