Located in the heart of Blueberry country, 446 O'Regan Road offers 4.5ha (more or less) of land with a thriving blueberry business and productive orchard, retail outlet with ice cream and berry sales, processing pack house and additional support buildings plus a quality four bedroom family home.
Comprising of approximately three hectares of productive orchard. The orchard has undergone an extensive plant renewal programme to increase the more favourable higher producing varieties over the past four years, it is now on the cusp of benefiting financially from this dedication and focus for the future. With 6,000 blueberry shrubs ranging in age between nine months to forty years and a large portion of the orchard now being the newer varieties of Velluto, Sky Blue, Centra and Sunset, it is in great shape for the seasons ahead. The orchard offers multiple varieties of blueberries, ripening at different intervals over the growing season which allows a constant supply. 250 Brigitta shrubs have been committed to with the idea of planting this Autumn and filling an area of new production land.
The licensed retail shop has been popular over summer for fresh and frozen blueberries, but most of all the ice creams! This is proving to be a viable portion of the business with huge potential. Last year just under 3,000kgs of berries were sold through retail with another 13,300kgs in the export market, with the expectation this will grow with newer plantings maturing over the coming years.
The pack house is a part of the retail space which contains a BBC Technologies soft sorter and six head clam shell filler, sticker machine and lift belt with the work space with staff facilities. A harvest logistics system provides full traceability.
A 204sqm (more or less) home offers good indoor outdoor flow looking over the orchard, an open plan kitchen with large living spaces ideal for family living.
