Located just south of Hunterville and close to State Highway 1, Rata comprises one of the largest areas of finishing and cropping country to ever avail itself in the region. With a high proportion of the highly regarded Kiwitea silt loam as well as other quality soils, around 75% is assessed as croppable contour, with the balance medium hill. This has enabled an integrated system of a self-contained dairying, beef cattle as well as growing supplement for associated dairy farms.
Central to the flats is a 60 bail rotary shed with ACRs, with an adjacent feed pad able to accommodate all of the 650 cows currently being milked. Well subdivided and laned, the property has plentiful stock water, including allocation and consents for up to 235 cubic meters of stock water per day, from the local water scheme and bore sources.
With 13 titles, two dwellings, a dividing quiet road and the semi-separate hill block, there are numerous options for this property.
Some of the options include:
A majority of the circa 70 hectares of hill contour is contained in a 63 hectare title, located at one end of the property that could be potentially sold separately.
The former potato factory sits on its own 7.5 hectare title – with numerous sheds including a circa 3,400m2 high stud storage shed and a certified weighbridge, this could suit those requiring large storage, so close to the country's main arterial route.
In a favourable location for families, with the Hunterville primary passing the gate, and the Rangitikei College bus just a short stroll away.
