Secure water supply offers exciting opportunities


Horticultural investors looking beyond the Bay of Plenty for horticultural land with scale and future water supply can invest in a large Northland property offering excellent growing conditions.

To date the 185ha Te Kopuru property has set a consistent benchmark for high level dairy production over the past decade where it sits in the top tier of producers, averaging 280,560kg milk-solids a year over the past five years and 270,000kg milk-solids for the decade. It is on target this year to produce 300,000kg milk-solids. For Bayleys Northland agent Catherine Stewart, it is the propertys location to one of the Te Tai Tokerau water projects that opens up a new range of potential opportunities for purchasers of the property. The Te Tai Tokerau water storage project is well underway and will be delivering water to horticultural operations only, with capacity to supply 4000ha. It promises to open up this districts full potential for growing which has exceptional soils, but has been stymied in the past by a lack of water, she says. The propertys north facing, flat to easy contour is underlain by high quality free draining soils that are ideally suited to avocado production, and a small area of peat country ideal for blueberry growing. The development of the Kaipara Water Scheme only 2km from the farm as part of the Te Tai Tokerau project is well underway. When fully developed the scheme will hold 3.2 million cubic metres of water for supply. Being only two farms down from the irrigation reservoir puts this property in an ideal location, and its soils are superb for growing. We find the farm responds quicker than others to whatever rainfall we get over summer- the country is proven, so the opportunities with potential water next door are exciting, says Lana. Its now time for the the new owners to capitalize on the potential and research the developments that are happening in the area.
