Quality units in prime locations are always sought after so this 211 hectare (more or less) dairy unit near Elstow is a good fit. With road frontage on three sides and the dairy shed right in the heart of the property this is a serious production machine.

The all flat contour with mostly sandy and silt loam soils is indeed very fertile.

Around 700 cows are milked with a three year production average of 274,700 milk solids and a best of over 300,024 milk solids (2017/18).

The Don Chapman 50 bale rotary is centrally located with races feeding out in three directions to all 80 paddocks. The shed has a Milfos plant with ACR's, twin bank plate cooler and a glycol pre-chill system with heater exchanger, 21,000 litre milk silo and ancillary milk vat with chiller. There is around 800 cow capacity yards for the dairy.

Support buildings include two spacious gable calf rearing sheds, two five bay implement sheds plus two hay barns. A fert bin is handy to the working hub.

Effluent storage is currently being addressed with a new clip tank being installed later in the season when weather is more suitable.

A concrete holding tank with 20hp pump and stirrer feeds out through 90mm lines and eight hydrants covering approximately 40 hectares with a travelling irrigator.

A huge bonus for the farm is the multiple sources of excellent quality water which is pressure fed through a 40mm loopline to much of the property with 25mm lines covering the balance.

The main dwelling features exposed timber interior and includes four spacious bedrooms, ensuite, open plan kitchen and dining, two spacious lounge/family rooms, double glazing and a log fire with heat transfer system. Adjacent is a double garage and lockable workshop. The second and third dwellings both have four bedrooms.

A top quality unit in a great location is hard to beat.

Primary school and garage are a few minutes away and Te Aroha and Morrinsville are short commutes.

The vendors have decided it is definitely time to retire so stock and plant are also available.
