Scale with proud history
This impressive 782 hectare (more or less) dry stock property comes to the market for the first time in over 80 years, from an established family rich in history, going back as far as 1907 in Kawhia.
With six titles spanning two main roads the future opportunity is vast and could allow for multiple owners or varying farm and forestry options to be implemented.
Okupata Hereford stud was established 1980 and has been the backbone of the farms stocking policy since, over the last few years stock classes have varied with the cattle to sheep ratio increasing. The farm has a mix of contour with an excellent balance of breeding/finishing land, a good portion of rolling country is towards Okupata Road, allowing easy access via a wide central laneway to the main stock facilities for handling. 80 hectares in pockets of native bush gives the farm fantastic aesthetic appeal with around 14 hectares of young pines also planted.
The hill country is then a combination of recently developed bush blocks and established parcels of land that climb up over the range to Kawhia Road. Satellite yards are also strategically positioned.
Water is supplied from a large dam on the back country, which is pumped via a water ram to a main holding tank, gravity feeding further tanks and troughs throughout the property.
Two homes should resonate with family or staff as one comprises of eight bedrooms and the other has been recently built.
Infrastructure is extensive with the main woolshed key to operations, having its own unique bull selling complex attached. The four stand wool shed has expansive grating areas within the under covered yards. Nearby is a quality set of cattle yards with a covered hydraulic crush for weighing and stock handling.
This is a once in a generational opportunity with very few properties of this scale coming to the market. With access to Kawhia harbour and Mt Pirongia at your doorstep this farming operation comes with the benefits of much more.
Note: Own motorbikes and helmet will be required at Open days.
