Blueberry orchard - Ripe for picking


With our current vendors now at the retirement stage, the opportunity now exists for a new operator to step things up while enjoying the great outdoor lifestyle in the Bay of Islands.

A well-presented Blueberry orchard in a popular lifestyle and horticulture area ripe for the picking. Positioned on 4.66 hectares that will attract those seeking a great lifestyle and an opportunity to take the property to the next level. The property comes as a package deal with all machinery and equipment being sold as part of the sale.

The predominately flat orchard is divided into five well sheltered blocks with protective bird netting cover over all blocks. Careful varietal selection has meant that the orchard has fruit supply for most of the summer months, with harvest commencing from late October and finishing in mid-April.

The operation is fully self-contained having its own packing and cold storage facilities while product is awaiting transport. Fruit is supplied through local farmers markets, local retailers and wholesale markets in Auckland.

With increasing production, supply opportunities also include export to the lucrative Asian markets and value-added products. With production and yields forecast to increase significantly over the next 3 to 5 years there is a great deal of potential still to be realised - take the orchard to the next level and reap the rewards that come your way.

The orchard is fully irrigated (computerised system) with drippers with secure water supply via Kerikeri Irrigation Scheme. The packhouse has all the necessary equipment and storage capacity for fruit handling post-harvest and there is ample room for trucks to load and unload. Attached to the rear of the shed is a one-bedroom self-contained unit providing seasonal worker accommodation.

This orchard has been well setup with the future in mind. An additional block remains vacant and could also be planted out. Complementing the orchard is the home, with three large double bedrooms, office and two bathrooms (including ensuite).
