Riverside Orchards

Rarely do we see an opportunity of this nature presented to the market in our region. After more than 100 years of family ownership in the original block of land, our vendors are offering this well set up orchard and retail shop to the market.

Comprising of just over 18ha of flat land, the orchard has an impressive assortment of Apricots, Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Pears and Apples, all of which are producing extremely well. Located on the edge of the Manawatu River this property has been well set up with mature shelter belts giving good protection to the trees.

Some additional horticultural crops have been grown on the property, including pumpkins in the current year, with almost anything growing well in the first class Manawatu Silt Loam soils.

Supporting infrastructure in the orchard block includes a packing shed, implement sheds, cool stores and chemical shed. Two wells supply adequate water to the property for both domestic and general property use, including the ability for some irrigation on occasions.

Supporting the orchard is a fully stocked retail shop which is located further along Napier Road. Produce sold in the shop is sourced from the orchard as well as the local market. Many customers at the shop are long standing ones, with other sales also made via the business website and weekly Feilding farmers market. Riverside Orchards run a produce delivery service to a number of business clients on a regular basis.

The opportunity exists for a new owner to continue with the orchard and shop in the current manner or diversify the orchard business to include some form of hospitality or functions venue.

The property is genuinely offered for sale, with Offers Closing on Thursday 3rd May 2018, If not sold prior.
