Description

Walk in and start picking in July!


If a change in scenery and career is high up on your priority list, perhaps the lifestyle of being an Avocado grower in the Far North is on the cards where you can be your own boss, work your own part time hours to suit and yet have a sizeable income with upside.

Containing 7.05ha (more or less) in total land area and approximately 6ha in planted orchard, this block is relatively straight forward to run as an owner/operator or under management as a passive investment. If required, a good young manager is available either short or long term.

Over recent years the current owner has streamlined the entire operation making everything from spraying, irrigation, pruning, fertilising and harvesting, simple, easier and faster to carry out. Apart from harvesting, all other orchard activities can be handled by one person for most of the year averaging 3-4 days per week, leaving time for leisure activities such as fishing, hunting and swimming on both the west and east coasts.

The orchard at a glance:

•Approximately 1130 mixed age trees with an estimated 70-75% of trees being on Dusa or Bounty clonal rootstock

•Fully irrigated with sprinkler emitters

•Sandy soils and temperate climate

•Bore water supply - consent recently renewed

•Orchard doesn't experience bi-annual bearing like orchards further down country

•Recent production increased and remains steady at around 10,000 trays

•Recent export pack-out percentage exceeding 87%

•Early maturity and clearance for local and export picking in June/July

•With revitalisation work and tree height addressed by the vendor, production is now starting to increase

•Orchard production growth to 15,000 trays expected in 3-5 years in its current state

•The cherry on top - crop and machinery included

•Good support infrastructure, shedding and workshop

A tidy, comfortable and warm three bedroom home sits on an elevated site and overlooks the orchard. A good size outdoor decking area is great for entertaining, having a BBQ and enjoying a few cold beverages.
