Te Awamutu 670 Pirongia Road

Tenders Close 21 October, 4 PM (unless sold by private treaty)

Sitting to the west of Te Awamutu under the watchful eye of Mount Pirongia is one of the most majestic properties in the Waikato. This trophy dairy farm covers two hundred and seventy four hectares (subject to survey) of easy rolling downs country. With its landscaped tree plantings, along with the stands of native Kahikatea, this farm could be considered one the most stunning dairy units to be found anywhere in New Zealand. Approximately 755 cows are currently milked through a 44 ASHB dairy shed and on a mainly grass based system which is supported by a 1,100 sqm feed pad. Storage bunkers for maize and grass silage are adjacent. There are numerous support buildings which are used for calf rearing, implement storage, workshop repairs and chemical storage. A second dairy shed is available for milking colostrum cows. Five homes provide plentiful farm accommodation. Farm infrastructure is of an appealing quality with boundary and internal fencing being a mix of conventional and electrics. Groundwater bores provide water for dairy shed, stock water and domestic use. The all-weather looped race system makes all paddocks easily accessible. Effluent is by way of a two pond (unlined) system and contents are spread via an underground pipeline and hydrants using spray irrigation. Located approximately 8km from the highly regarded rural service town of Te Awamutu and an easy 31km drive to the business hub of Hamilton. You are also within walking distance to the village of Pirongia for a supermarket, cafes and the local primary school. Options to purchase are for the entire 302 hectare dairy farm including the two kiwifruit orchards. Alternatively, the subdivision can be completed allowing the kiwifruit orchards to be purchased independently of the dairy farm. Also created would be separate lifestyle blocks. The subdivision would increase the number of titles from seven to ten. Refer also listing www.bayleys.co.nz /2310681 Kiwifruit Orchard.
