Diversification will reap rewards

The Eastern Bay of Plenty is poised to benefit from a massive infrastructure investment from the provincial growth fund. Farming, forestry, horticulture and aquaculture have already seen massive growth, and this is set to continue.

185B Gaskill Road is perfectly positioned for anyone with an eye for the future. The 126.4384 hectares (more or less) being offered for sale is held in six separate titles. The land has a mix of flat and easy hill along with some steeper areas and has been farmed by the same family for over 65 years.

320 Dairy cows along with 45 replacement heifers and calves are carried with support from neighbouring lease land throughout the year. Most of the fencing is standard post and two wire, dividing the farm into 58 paddocks.

Water comes from a well on the property and is reticulated through 32mm line to all paddocks. A central race way provides good access to all paddocks along with a very well-formed gravel roadway which also provides access to a neighbouring forestry block that has recently been harvested.

Further infrastructure includes a modern well equipped 36 aside cowshed complete with electronic cup removers. This shed is well constructed, has good yard space and certainly makes light work of milking the cows.

The farm managers accommodation is provided by a three-bedroom 1950's weatherboard home which has many outstanding period design features and boasts a premium elevated site. A second home offers three bedrooms, open plan living and has nice views over the farm. A large range of out buildings include, a woolshed converted to a very good calf rearing facility, an implement shed and workshop, barn and a covered fertiliser bin used for palm kernel.

The location and potential of this farm will appeal to many, diversification here will reap rewards. Further improve the dairy or dry stock potential or will it be horticulture on a mixed use with a bit of forestry attached. You choose.
