Located in the renowned farming area of Opiki, some 15 minutes south of Palmerston North, this 175 ha (more or less) dairy farm operation is situated on some of the finest soils, being a mixture of silt loams and Opiki peat.
Currently milking +/- 520 cows and producing 1,350 kg MS per hectare on a system II basis, the property offers a scale and quality which are seldom found together. Improvements include a 50 bail rotary cowshed, centrally located on the farm, with an excellent range of support buildings to ensure every need is met, season round.
In addition to dairying, this property has previously produced excellent, consistent yields of potatoes for many seasons. Summer crops are grown annually and include turnips, chicory and occasionally maize, all with very high yields.
Dwellings include a four-bedroom manager's house and a three-bedroom cottage, both of which are in very tidy condition and feature modern refurbishments. An executive, four-bedroom family home with extensive shedding, is available for purchase in addition to the main farm if desired.
Features of the farm extend even further to encompass high fertility levels - Olsen P's of 45-64 and pH of 5.9, well maintained races and an ample supply of quality bore water.
This farm offers an exciting opportunity to own one of the best there is and reflects the pride our Vendor has taken in developing this property to what is today.
