Sheep and Beef, Dairy Support


Auction from 1pm, Friday 9th November 2012 (unless sold prior), 3 Deans Avenue, Christchurch

Kirkstyle Farm is an outstanding summer safe Central Canterbury foothills property with a very good balance of contour, aspect and soils. There is approximately 80 ha of lighter soils with approx 170ha of heavy silt soils on the flats.

The property has been farmed as a dairy support block for the past three years and, with its high rainfall and 250ha of flats, would also make dairy conversion a possibility. A Central Plains Water canal is planned to eventually pass along the front of the property enabling further intensification.

A permanent material eight year old homestead has a stunning view across the valley to the north and is complemented by two cottages, a full range of farm buildings including a large four stand shearing shed and four permanent 60 tonne silos.

Traditionally the farm has grown a wide range of arable crops with high yields of potatoes and barley, in particular. There is a functional deer shed with 73ha deer fenced and a further 73ha of managed forestry lots. Access to Kirkstyle Farm is very good with a central lane servicing 65 paddocks. The offering of this property presents buyers with a unique opportunity to purchase a large attractive foothills farm in a premium location.
