Located in dairy dominant locality, just 9km from Hunterville and State Highway 1, this property is the quintessential "first farm", but as it comprises some of the regions best soils, it offers lots of land-use alternatives.
Comprised of around 72 hectares of croppable contour, with the balance very hill, the predominant soil type is Kiwitea Silt Loam. A preferred soil type for the dairy industry, this loamy and relatively free draining soil is great maize, livestock finishing or potato ground.
Considerable development has been under taken in recent years, with a whole new water reticulation system, upgrades to tracks, fencing and effluent system, and generous capital fertiliser applications.
Running a 180-190 cow, wintered on system, with only PKE and hay coming on, the recent average has been 80,000kg MS.
The recently re-painted four and three bedroom homes are solid but largely original to their 1960s heritage. Being only a 1.5km stroll up the quiet road to the bus to a large country primary school, and handy to both Feilding and Palmerston North, this is a great place to bring up a young family.
