This 88.89 hectare flat irrigated dairy unit is blessed with very fertile Ahikouka silt loam soils which have been developed into a very efficient and easy to operate dairy farm. Located just 7.5km from Featherston and close to the popular weekend destinations of Martinborough and Greytown the property is just an hours drive from Wellington.
The farm has a character four bedroom homestead, 18 aside cowshed with all new pumps and pit, implement and other calf rearing and support sheds. The farm is subdivided into 31 paddocks all supplied with beautiful clear water. Of the 83ha effective there are 60ha irrigated via K-Line and a 25 l/s irrigation right. The soils are well drained with a share in a local drainage scheme. The five year average production is 95,500kgMS off around 260 cows aided by consistent fertiliser applications demonstrated in the soil test averages of pH 6.1 & OlsenP 39. The current pit effluent system has consent to 2022.
This is a well located quality dairy unit with high class soils underpinned by irrigation to ensure consistent production. The size is "just right" with a husband & wife team making the best labour mix. There is historical financial analysis to EFS level available post inspection to interested parties- could suit an equity partnership?
