Owner-Operator Dairy Farm

First farm buyers, owner operators or run off block buyers should certainly be interested in 323 Shenandoah Highway which is just south to the country township of Murchison. 91.9325 Ha split between two titles, currently the property has 51 ha approx. of effective grazing, with the balance being either land that could be further developed into grazing or mature native bush. Adding to the potential of this property is a generous irrigation right from the Maruia River, which is worth its weight in gold in a dry season, and your choice of supplying either Westland Milk, the current supplier or Fonterra. The recent changes to Westland Milk mean that the new owner can enter into supplying without having to purchase shares and there is a guaranteed pricing structure for future supply.
The main dwelling is a good family size home with four-bedrooms and an office with the added bonus of a two-bedroom cottage for extra family, a worker or passive income potential. The property is on the main highway and improvements to the property include a stock underpass. The dairy shed is a 16 aside herringbone which serves the current owners well for their herd of 135 cows. The western boundary of the property borders the Maruia River, giving the landowner exclusive access to a small beach and amazing swim hole, so family fun in the summer doesn't need to be far from the farm. Combine that with the fishing and hunting in the native bush, the recreation opportunities are just as exciting as the farming business.
If this looks of interest to you give Toby or Sharyn a call today.
