Tags: Canterbury Rural

This recently developed dairy farm is located just 23 kilometres south of Christchurch in the agricultural settlement of Greenpark outside Lincoln.

Ben Turner of Bayleys says the Embankment Road property has been placed on the market for sale following a comprehensive development programme by the vendors.

“All of the hard work has been done and a large amount of capital invested, making this an easy farm to manage.”

This 221 hectare farm is subdivided into 23 electric-fenced paddocks of predominantly flat terrain consisting of Motukarara sandy loam and silt loam soils.

The vendors have invested considerable capital into a property overhaul including drains, subdivision, layout, regrassing, irrigation, capital fertiliser application and water supply.

The property is for sale either as land and buildings, or as a going concern with stock and Fonterra shares at valuation.

Facilities include a large seven bay implement shed including a lock-up workshop, a three bay utility shed, a five bay hayshed, a 25 tonne grain silo, a 2.5 tonne meal silo, two vats holding a combined 34,000 litres, a 50 bail internal rotary dairy shed and a circular yard capable of holding 560 cows.

Stock is made up of a mixed age herd of Friesian and some Jersey Cross cows. Approximately 150 heifers are grazed off-farm each year.


Accommodation includes a new four bedroom home and a three bedroom cottage. 128 Embankment Road, Greenpark is for sale by negotiation.
