Situated 10km east of Apiti village, within a spectacular environment, "Ruarata" has been faithfully farmed by four generations of the same family, for over 100 years.
Featuring a wonderful balance of contour, comprising close to 40 hectares of free draining flats described as Kopua silt loams, an area of attractive bush clad creek margin, with the balance medium hill country.
A generally summer reliable location, with a close to 1,300mm average rainfall, stock water is spring sourced and direct pumped to troughs in most paddocks.
Fertiliser has been applied regularly using Mainland Minerals fine particle products with a focus on balancing nutrient inputs.
Buildings include a spacious, well maintained four bedroom home, built in the late 1950s with alterations in the 1980s, along with both double garage and carports, a three stand woolshed plus hay and implement sheds.
The owners have operated a predominately sheep operation in recent years, with the majority of lambs finished, however the property offers potential to be run more intensively with a higher cattle component.
The owners have loved being part of the Apiti community, which includes playcentre, primary school and a bus to Feilding high school, plus golf club and tavern.
