Sold By Negotiation - Cropping, Grazing, Rural
Deadline Sale – 12pm, Wednesday 3 Aug (unless sold prior)
Located approximately 21km from Ashburton and 103km from Christchurch International Airport, this highly productive 222.2 hectare farm boasts a mixture of Lismore and Templeton soils as well as a full allocation of Mayfield Hinds Irrigation Scheme water, giving its purchaser options for a cropping, breeding, grazing or finishing farm. The farm is offered as the following two blocks:
For Lease: 157.1 hectare (subject to survey) bare land farm with many desirable qualities. Productive Lismore soils coupled with a full allocation of Mayfield Hinds Irrigation Scheme water enables the property to continually produce winter feed crops as well as cereal and permanent pasture. A storage pond secures the farms ability to irrigate through its two centre pivot irrigators. Six grain silos and cattle yards are included with the lease.
For Sale: 65.1 hectare (subject to survey) block with highly sought after Templeton soils and fully shared up for irrigation. Two water storage ponds are filled by the Mayfield Hinds Irrigation Scheme and then delivered onto the paddocks through a Turborainer Irrigator, powered by a diesel pump. The block is fenced into seven paddocks which have grown strong winter feed and grass crops. This property is ideal for an entry level farm, to add on to an existing farming operation or to run it alongside the adjoining lease block.
These properties has been faithfully farmed grazing over 2000 cattle for the last two years, grazing ewe hoggets as well as growing quality arable crops. Both blocks have been farmed efficiently according to a comprehensive fertiliser and crop rotation plan. They are very well presented and are well set up for mixed land uses, offering plenty of upside to their new custodian.
