Dairy Farm in the Bay of Plenty


Deadline Sale - Must Go

27th March 2014

This dairy farm of 71 hectares is located in the most desirable Te Puke farming area in the popular Bay of Plenty.

Milking 220 cows this season with a budgeted production of over 90,000 milk solids (in fact more likely 100,000) makes this one productive unit. The farm is well laid out with a good network of farm races linking the 39 paddocks. The management has changed this year with most cows wintered off and young stock off early to maximise pasture conversion. Stock water is metered from a council supply.

The 18 aside herringbone shed is adequate, set amongst the buildings on the farm which includes two half round barns and a four bay implement shed. The homestead is set apart from the other buildings, and standing proudly overlooking the farm with four bedrooms and pool that offers family summer fun.

Lifestyle is not far away with whitebaiting in the nearby stream, Pukehina beach a short drive and the Te Puke golf course just down the road. If you have a schooling need there are quality schools a short distance from this farm.

Location

If you are looking for location then few regions in New Zealand or the world have as much to offer as the Bay of Plenty. From the gentle harbour waters to its surf beaches, its fishing and diving grounds to the scenic bush, the Bay is as much a quiet recreational playground as it is a thriving business and rural community.

Key economic elements for the region include dairy farming, tourism, horticulture (predominantly Kiwifruit and Avocado production), Viticulture, Forestry, Housing and Holiday Makers.

Being an area that has seen large diversification over the couple of decades with land converted to kiwifruit or housing and huge dairy production increases. This farm enjoys location.

In the heart of the Bay of Plenty, a short drive to the beach, 20 km from the rural service town of Te Puke and 45km from Tauranga city this farm has location appeal.
