Large scale dairy, great improvements

Welcome to the Waikato. On the edge of Pipiroa, where the river meets the sea, you will find a tried and tested low cost farm system. Our owners have had the benefit of this excellent farm since 1992 and here is the opportunity for the astute buyer to continue reaping the rewards of their hard work.

This large dairy operation of 175 hectares (more or less) is comprised of four titles which will leave the new owner with options around potential subdivision. The contour is flat to easy with Hauraki Clay subsoils, fenced into approximately 75 paddocks by a combination of 2-4 wire fencing. The farm runs on a low System 2 model with 620-630 cows having been milked through the 44 ASHB over the past three years, producing an average of 164,000kgMS supplying Fonterra. A travelling irrigator covers approximately 28 hectares, whilst functional additions to the farm include excellent yards, calf rearing facilities, and feed-pad as well as multiple haybarns, a fertiliser/PKE bin, an old cowshed used for storage, and three stand-off pads to ease the pressure in those wetter months.

Accommodation is well catered for with four dwellings to house your family and staff. The main home is of 220sqm complete with four bedrooms, an office, two lounges, two bathrooms and double garaging. A three-bedroom built in 2013 is the secondary home. The third is also a modern three-bedroom home with a 1911 colonial two-bedroom cottage as the final addition which is currently tenanted.

Situated in the heart of a great rural community, excellent schooling is readily available with Kopuarahi and Ngatea for primary needs and the well-regarded Hauraki Plains College in Ngatea for secondary. Under 90km drive north will find you at Auckland Airport with an equidistant drive south taking you to Hamilton. Many golden sand beaches on the eastern side of the Coromandel are within an hours' drive and if fishing is your thing there is a boat ramp 1km from the farm, you could be onto your first snapper in five minutes.
