Irrigated Finishing and Wintering in a Great Location - 70ha
838 State Highway 53 Featherston
Wharepuke is a top-quality irrigated, finishing, wintering or support block superbly located almost halfway between Featherston and Martinborough and features versatile soils, good infrastructure and irrigation over most of the property. The 70ha unit has historically been used as a dairy wintering/support and livestock finishing block with crops of fodder beet, oats and rape grown for winter feed. The property has the significant benefit of around 64ha being under irrigation from a combination of pivot and travelling gun via a 25 litre per second consented bore. There is a recent set of cattle yards, with load out easily accessed from Te Maire Road, good quality fencing and all-weather lanes, and hayshed/implement shed, older woolshed and sheep yards accessed off SH53. The land is flat and has numerous potential house sites. The soils are well suited to a full range of livestock enterprises including wintering dairy stock, finishing lambs or cattle and/or supplement production. Pastures have been renewed across the entire block over the last 5 years and regular fertiliser (including lime) applied in line with a winter crop to permanent pasture regrassing programme. Wairarapa irrigated blocks of this quality, in this location and of this scale are rare - if you are seeking a well-located stand-alone investment opportunity or a quality add on to your other farming operations.
