Glencairn Station is genuinely for sale offering the astute farmer or investor a property with spectacular attributes. The property is 3,996 hectares in total, comprising a mix of land classes which offer farm system flexibility. Irrigated flats of approximately 300 hectares are underpinned by the strong soil types and an enviable irrigation consent. Currently run as a trading and finishing property alongside fine wool production, this is the type of property you only get one chance of owning with its breath-taking views of Mt Cook, potential for further consented irrigation development and many other future business opportunities identified by the current owners.
Easily accessed via a sealed road, the Station runs alongside the Ohau canal system and is situated on the Benmore Range with uninterrupted views of spectacular Mt Cook, with Lake Benmore to the east. Epitomising high country landscapes at its best, this property also has the enviable advantage of abundant, low cost irrigation supply to its flats ensuring plentiful feed during the dry summer months. Prior due diligence of intensifying the irrigation system has been undertaken and the consent currently allows for approx 214ha of pivot irrigation and 211ha of fixed grid k-line or similar irrigation.
Farm infrastructure has been bolstered by a considerable capital spend over the past two years to now include; a new stock water system with extensive storage, new cattle and sheep yards, with renovations to the cottage, woolshed and shearers quarters and renovated irrigation pastures (approx. 300 hectares) which have been undersown to ensure a consistent supply of feed.
Alongside the farm operations is a busy campsite and boat ramp business offering extra income and plenty of scope for development into the future. The campground at ‘Ohau C’ is a very popular site through the summer months with capacity for 500 campers plus spread out over 120 sites.
