The absolute best
This stunning property, comprising both dairy and kiwifruit, lies in some of the richest and most fertile land in the country.
Close to Te Awamutu, in some of the best milking country in New Zealand, is this 302 hectare (more or less) trophy dairy farm. Lying under the watchful eye of Mt Pirongia, the flat to gentle rolling contoured property stands out from the rest.
The aesthetic appeal of this farm with its long road frontage, nice array of Kahikateas and other specimen trees makes this an absolute stunning property which would be a privilege for anyone to own.
With a very productive 276 hectares (more or less) milking platform and the huge bonus of over 18 canopy hectares of green kiwifruit as a 'cash cow' provides a very healthy income stream.
Around 755 cows are milked through a 44 ASHB on a largely grass based feeding regime. A concrete feed pad is adjacent to the diary with maize and silage bunkers located close to the working hub. The dairy is centrally located with a looped race system feeding out to all paddocks. The fencing, a mix of 2 and 3 wire electric and permanent, is in very good order.
The farm has a number of bores which provide plentiful excellent quality water to the dairy shed, stock, houses and kiwifruit.
Effluent from the dairy shed and feed pad are collected and stored in two unlined ponds and spread over the pasture via underground piping and hydrants using a spray irrigation system.
The dairy operation has a good number of support buildings at the working hub and located around the farm. There is also a second 20 ASHB used for early season colostrum cows.
There are five dwellings on the property with a main home sitting nicely elevated facing the sunny north in a private and peaceful setting. The home has 3 bedrooms with open plan kitchen/dining and lounge.
The second dwelling, currently occupied by the share milker, is a spacious four bedroom home with a double garage.
The property enjoys a fantastic location - just eight kilometres from Te Awamutu and walking distance to the very popular Pirongia township. Hamilton in one direction, snow in the other, what more could you want.
