Golden triangle location


This quality property in Hinuera creates an excitement reserved for such units. The 174ha (more or less) is mostly flat with fertile sandy loam soils and around 24ha being gentle rolling.

Pond Road is a premium address and the owners have recently invested in a new 44ASHB and a new lined pond will be constructed for the new owner.

Previously 500 cows have been milked off a larger area with 450 cows being the current herd size. Calves are farmed on with heifers grazed off. Last season's production was 165,239 milk solids.

The main block of 150ha is divided into approximately 60 paddocks with two main races feeding away from the dairy shed. The balance of 24ha across the quiet no-exit road is divided into eight paddocks.

The dairy shed has a 500 cow circular yard with dual water powered backing gates, an industrial sized plate cooler plus a glycol water chill system, a 16,000 litre milk silo plus an ancillary milk vat with chiller. Adjacent are a number of buildings used for calf rearing and storage.

The current effluent system comprises two unlined ponds which pump to a travelling irrigator covering approximately 50 hectares with underground plumbing and seven hydrants.

The water system is comprised of two main bores with submersible pumps and a number of manacons around the farm for water storage as well as at the dairy shed. There is a mix of 40mm and 25mm mainlines with a 25mm alkathene loop line on the 150 hectare block. Two further bores may be used as back-up if there are supply issues. There are two in-line dosetron systems dispensing minerals.

There are three dwellings with the main a five year old brick home with three bedrooms and ensuite. The other two dwellings are older, each with three bedrooms.

Properties in the Piarere/Hinuera district are sought after as the cropping fraternity as well as equine establishment have a distinct liking for the soil type, contour and location.

With Matamata, Tauranga, Cambridge and Hamilton short commutes, the location can only be described as enviable.
