Ripe and ready in supreme location


Laden with top quality Sungold and Hayward fruit in Tauranga's highly regarded horticulture belt, the family owners of the Richmond and Glasshouse Orchard have demonstrated outstanding husbandry over the past 20 years with the property very well presented and maintained, and offering a great location, fertile soils and sub-tropical climate; the kiwifruit is thriving. Set back from the road with privacy assured, the 10.4558ha (more or less) property is in three titles but offered for sale as a whole. Suited to the serious grower, this low altitude orchard comprises 2.65 can/ha Hayward, 3.54 can/ha Sungold G3 and a further 0.35 ha three year old seedlings ready to graft. The majority of the orchard is double planting layout, well spaced to admit light and for effective harvesting. Two trunk girdles are completed seasonal on the vines promoting higher taste levels.

With tidy mature hedging sheltering the orchard, manual/automated as well as wind frost protection equipment, full irrigation and water stations, sound pergola structures and 80 percent of the orchard converted to Agbeam, all the hard work has been done. The orchards are serviced by two main water sources; 2 x 60,000 litre water tanks and a deep well bore. Power backup is from a 50kw generator, but is rarely used. There's ample shedding next to the loadout yard. The 129m2 double bay implement shed has lockable roller doors, a concrete floor, three phase power supply and houses the frost protection system; perfect for storing orchard machinery and equipment. An additional 72m2 five bay open lean-to provides further room for bin storage at harvest. An owner, manager and orchard staff could be housed in the staff accommodation or the two three bedroom homes onsite or rent for potential income. Latest rental appraisals estimate $55,900-$59,540 per annum total rental. Sale includes crop proceeds 2017/2018. Property will be sold plus GST (if any), cannot be sold prior to Auction.
