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 www.bayleys.co.nz ID 1811957 or view the video on https://vimeo.com/153187120. For further information contact Stewart on 0800 422 959 or 027 356 5031.
