A 258ha Northland dairy farm for sale at less than $15,000 per hectare averages 170,000kg milksolids (MS) and has the scope to be a fully self-contained unit.
Reading Time: < 1 minute

Located just north of Dargaville in the Mamaranui Valley, the picturesque property flows over fertile flats and rolling hills.

Catherine Stewart from Bayleys Real Estate says the motivated vendors have a butchery business already lined up and want the farm sold, along with the herd of Friesian and crossbred cows.

“It could be a great self-contained unit where you graze dairy support on the rolling hills and have the fertility on the productive flats. They irrigate effluent on to the paddocks and grow a good crop of chicory every year for summer feed and maize for silage.”

During the 2014-15 season the farm produced 190,769kg MS from 550 cows; milking them through the tidy 42-aside herringbone dairy.

All the infrastructure is in good order, including a wintering barn-calving pad and an array of support buildings. From the dairy, the farm is well-raced and metalled from its own quarry to the 110 paddocks that generally have good, strong pasture.

“It’s a really nice sheltered valley 10km north of Dargaville and all the infrastructure is really good, so you can just walk in and farm it.”

Three homes complete the farm, from a four-bedroom kauri homestead with a swimming pool, to a solid three-bedroom home and a workers cottage.

The farm is for sale by negotiation under $15,000/ha, with the herd available at valuation and also Fonterra shares. To view the farm visit ID 1811957 or view the video on For further information contact Stewart on 0800 422 959 or 027 356 5031.
