Opportunity to Step Up or Down the Farming Ladder

Located 25 minutes from Amberley, 1 hour from Christchurch Airport, this great 231ha property offers the aspiring farmer an opportunity to get the start they want into farming on a productive property in a great location. The location makes it commutable to Christchurch.

A great balance of land having some 10ha of flat, 80ha of good easy downs and a valley at the back that lies very nicely to the north that is a bit steeper, has some cover and occasionally some wild game.

Presently carrying some 1,500 stock units of sheep and cattle with great facilities and dwelling.

The facilities include a nice 4 bedroom, 2 lounge, 1 bathroom plus office house, very good 3 stand woolshed (550 NP) and covered yards, 4 bay implement shed/workshop and cattle yards. The property is well fenced into 6 paddocks, 12 easy down blocks and 6 blocks in the back valley.

Currently running mid micron ewes, put to a terminal sire producing good returns. The cattle are purchased as weaned calves and normally taken through to killable weight.

There are 8ha of pine trees (28 years old) to give a harvest return in the near future.

The access tracks are great, making management simple as much of the production is from the downs above the house and flats.

Water supply is from a Council scheme supplemented by a good spring close to the top of the property.
