Description

Quality soils, irrigation and location


Held in one family for many years and faithfully farmed, this exceptional 202 hectare property offers diversity with fertile productive soils and irrigation.

Located in Chertsey, Mid Canterbury, an area renowned for cereals, seed production and vegetables, but also healthy country for livestock finishing.

A quality farm in all aspects, especially the Chertsey soils capable of growing a wide range of crops including potatoes. In the past, breeding ewes have been prominent, but more recently, winter trading lambs and finishing cattle have been utilised in the property's rotation. Irrigation water is sourced via a ground water consent from two bores, the local Acton Irrigation Scheme and is applied by lateral and fixed boom irrigators. The irrigation system has been designed to maximise efficient coverage under the irrigators, while keeping as much shelter as possible.

An excellent standard of fencing and laneways that lead to the centrally located sheep yards and three stand shearing shed, coupled together with the main yard complete with workshop, implement and hay sheds, grain silos and cattle yards make this a turnkey proposition.

The main homestead comprises of four bedrooms and is positioned with a sunny aspect and established shelter. Further to this is a two bedroom self-contained cottage suitable for staff or extended family.
