High tech blueberries still to peak


If you're in the market for a horticulture investment or a change in lifestyle, this high-tech blueberry operation is definitely worth further investigation.

Consisting of 1.1ha of tunnel and greenhouse structures, this blueberry growing operation has certainly proven its ability as a top producer, with last season's yields putting it within the top five orchards in the country. Full yield is still to be realised and here lies the opportunity for a new operator to reap the rewards of all the capital and infrastructure invested on this property and orchard to where it is today.

Snapshot of the blueberry orchard:

- Automated irrigation/fertigation, misting and venting systems

- Latest plant variety genetics

- Extended harvest window using early, mid and late seasons varieties

- Supplying local and export markets

- High pack-out percentage and low fruit wastage due to controlled growing environment

- Higher than industry average production puts it within the top five orchards in the country

- Irrigation water via Kerikeri Irrigation Scheme

- Yields and returns allow the orchard to be under management or as an owner-operator

Completing this impressive package is a four-bedroom family home (currently tenanted) with extensive outdoor decking and entertaining areas. The established easy-care gardens provide a sub-tropical theme surrounding the home, plus separation and privacy from the orchard.

With blueberries globally known for their acclaimed superfood status, demand continues to increase year-on-year with new and existing export markets realising the health and antioxidant benefits of this superfruit.

This is a rare opportunity that doesn't come to market very often, enquire today for a full information pack and to arrange a private viewing.
