Ideally situated, this 107-hectare dairy farm offers a rare opportunity to purchase an established farm operation in a prime position close to Lincoln township.

The property boasts excellent pasture with highly fertile soils and low N loss. With an existing consent to farm in place, the versatility exists to continue the dairy operation or diversify into growing vegetables, flowers or fattening stock.

Milking through a 28-bail rotary shed with an existing meal feeding system, the dairy unit has historically produced between 164,000 kgMS and 173,000 kgMS from a herd size of approximately 400 cows. The current share milker runs a low-cost mostly grass-based system with the need to buy in additional feed as required as they undertake a re-grassing policy. Converted in 1993, the milking platform is a 28-bail rotary with NuPulse plant and yard capacity for up to 400 cows.

The farm has excellent access with good shelter and is fully irrigated from a 140-metre well using K-line sprinkler pods. A one-hectare wetland area has been fenced off and protected by a QE II covenant adding to both the operation and aesthetics of the farm.

Accommodation is provided by two separate four-bedroom homes plus an additional third 'barn style' home, with three bedrooms, situated on a separate 1 hectare title.

Located close to Lincoln township and within an easy commute of Christchurch city, this property provides an excellent balance between farm life and the convenience of town amenities. The handy situation offers opportunities for off-farm activities and education for families and makes finding casual staff easier when needed.
