Description

Flat and fertile dairy farm


Located in an area both recognised for dairying and regarded as affordable; this is a great opportunity to build upon what is already here and take this farm to a new level.

Situated on the fertile flats of Ruawai, this very productive 146 hectare (more or less) dairy farm milking approximately 300 cows has produced 114,530kgMS in the 2108/2109 season.

The centrally located 34 ASHB cowshed has the capacity to hold 350 cows and has the added convenience of a feed pad with troughs. The soil type is Kaipara clay and Kaipara clay loam which contains high fertility levels that sustain good strong rye and clover pasture.

The all flat contour and rectangular shape make management of this property easy, appealing and conveniently is held in five titles. The farm is well raced with limestone and well subdivided into approximately 65 paddocks duly well fenced with a mixture of one, two and three wire electric. The water is sourced from the neighbouring volcanic hills via an easement, gravity fed to tanks and pumped to the troughs. The effluent system consists of two holding ponds and two storage ponds. Farm buildings include a three bay workshop, two disused cowsheds with one set up with race for vetting plus other support buildings.

Renovations are currently underway on the large four bedroom home plus office and the exterior has been newly painted. Conveniently located for the avid fisherman is a boat ramp at the back of the farm for those days you feel like having a break from farming.

The dairy unit is currently leased and expires at the end of the season, so take advantage of this opportunity and secure this quality parcel of land.
