Boutique 57ha dairy farm
This well presented, boutique dairy farm in the Maihiihi district is perfectly suited for a family operation and being 57ha (more or less) extra labour will not be an issue.
The 24 ASHB dairy shed, built in 2014, is centrally located on the property and its modern fit-out makes milking a breeze. The farm has been under the custodianship of long term sharemilkers who use a low input system. The average three year production is 61,875kgMS, a small proportion of which is achieved off a neighbouring lease.
The three bedroom Keith Hay home with adjoining carport and double garage has magnificent views over the property and to the North.
Farm buildings include a three bay half round hay barn and a two bay implement shed which has power and a toilet. Both sheds are easily adapted as calf sheds.
The property is well subdivided into around 32 paddocks and the contour is a mix of flats to mainly undulating and easy hill. Soil type for the hills is Otorohanga silt loam and the flats are Puniu silt and clay loams. Regular fertilisation applications have been carried out as per the recommendations.
Water is sourced from a bore at the dairy shed and pumped to an elevated concrete tank then reticulated to troughs in all paddocks. There are additional water tanks at the dairy shed for shed and stock use.
The rocky bottom Mangaorongo stream crosses the south eastern portion of the property. This, along with all waterways, has been fenced off.
This attractive farm is around five minutes drive from the Maihiihi playcentre, primary school, rugby club and sports facility and further amenities can be found in Otorohanga, 14km and Te Awamutu, 22km.
With its handy location, this property offers many attractions for those buyers keen to enter the dairy industry as well as established farmers looking for more support land.
