Description

'Scotswood'


For Sale: Offers invited by 4pm, Thu 22 Mar 2018 (unless sold prior)

This versatile 326ha property is in an area where farms of this size seldom become available. Until eight years ago Scotswood was a traditional sheep farm running around 3,000 ewes with some crop, but with a burgeoning number of dairy conversions close by, the property now carries approximately 300 dairy heifers, 450 dairy calves, 46 Angus beef cows, 150 sheep and winters 1,000 cows.

Scotswood has good Ruapuna soils with excellent fertility, around 900mm average annual rainfall, and now also has 109ha irrigated by three centre pivots. This addition of irrigation water adds further versatility to an already productive farm, ensuring a great future for the property. Two houses, a good shape, excellent shelter, subdivision and laneways, a good level of infrastructure and ample stock water from the County scheme makes for a simple operation.

Situated at the gateway to the mountains, lakes and rivers and close to Terrace Downs, outdoor recreation is on the doorstep - skiing, jet boating, fishing, golf, hunting, mountain biking or hiking are all so close.

This is an exceptional opportunity not to be missed.
