WHEN VIEWING PLEASE ENSURE CLEAN VEHICLE AND GUMBOOTS. A FOOT BATH WILL BE ON SITE. OPEN DAYS Tuesday 23rd, 30th October & 6th November between 12-1pm A fantastic opportunity to get in on the ground floor here. This 54 hectare (more or less) dairy unit near Te Aroha has long term leases of 71 hectares (approximately) giving a milking platform of around 115 hectares (effective). The contour is mostly flat and gentle rolling with production to 81,273 kg of milk solids from around 260 cows. The very good 32 aside dairy is centrally located with a good race system to most of the 90 paddocks. Along with the cows, 64 R1's are grazed on each year with R2's off. Support buildings include a 5 bay gable shed, a 4 bay gable shed and lean-to, PK/fert bin with sliding roof holding approximately 30 tonne and pump shed by Waitoki stream (water source). Supplements by way of grass silage is grown on farm (normally two stacks) and PK has been purchased - 40 tonne over the past two seasons. Water is sourced from a stream and pumped around parts of the property and to the dairy shed where it is dispersed further to header tanks and gravity fed to parts of the farm. Paeroa County water is connected but not currently used. Effluent is stored in a clay lined pond and pumped via a petrol pump to a travelling irrigator and covers approximately 10 hectares. In the dairy shed there is a teat spray, in-line dispenser, chilled water system, two vats and two chillers. The dwelling on the property is a spacious three bedroom weatherboard home with mostly aluminium joinery, a free standing log fire with wet-back plus office and walk-in pantry. A double garage is adjacent with auto door opener. With its proximity to both Te Aroha and Paeroa, and State Highway 26 as your neighbour, the location is great. The retiring vendors have set up this farm to accommodate a young person starting in the industry on a very affordable basis and with great scope to improve. These opportunities are rare so grab your banker and come and get the job done.
