Well poised on Wine Country's edge


With its proximity to Wellington and location within one of New Zealand's premier wine growing regions, Birch Hill Station offers an exciting range of options from its traditional pastoral sheep and beef base with potential for tourism and wine.

The 1,579 hectare property, only ten minutes South East from Martinborough and 70 minutes from Wellington, offers a good mix of flat rolling to medium hill country which includes some attractive river terraces. The property has received regular and generous fertiliser applications with the farm split into six blocks for lime application in an annual pattern, while regular fertiliser tests help identify areas to focus on with every annual application. Areas where the investment back into the property is very clear is in the standard of fencing, infrastructure and laneways throughout Birch Hill. Management is simplified by an exceptional standard of paddock layout, comprising 65 paddocks plus numerous holding paddocks and a series of gates throughout the laneway system to control stock movement.

Birch Hill's homestead offers a standard suited to a station of Birch Hill's stature, with the home carefully retaining its 100 year character features. In addition there is a 15 year old, three bedroom, two bathroom home plus shearers quarters renovated to a high standard suitable for a tourist operation. Six stand woolshed with an attached 2000 head covered yard, three sets of cattle yards and four sets of sheep yards throughout the station. Four bay storage/workshop and a further four bay implement/hayshed. Birch Hill has the Makara River flowing through it, and some highly appealing bush country throughout, with pleasant bush walks offering potential for on-farm tourism and holiday visits.

Opportunities to purchase properties of this calibre are rare today. Birch Hill's location and scale are its greatest attributes, an absolute turn key operation.
