697 Matata and 172 Sutherland Roads, located on the Rangitaiki Plains, Whakatane, offers exceptional scale to dairy in an industry recognised region known for its great climate, highly productive soils and exceptional lifestyle.

This appealing, Centennial Farm, has been faithfully farmed by the same family since 1919 and after 103 years the opportunity now exists to put yourself and your family into a most viable dairy unit and carry on the legacy this family has created.

The flat to slightly undulating contour creates options if you want to be self-contained. Dairy off, say the best 120 or so hectares, grow maize and supplement on farm, grow your young stock under your nose or take the significant opportunity within the property to increase cow numbers and milk it to its maximum potential. With its great location, being within 6 km's to Edgecumbe and the Fonterra dairy factory, the property is conveniently close to all the amenities and services the local community offers.

Presently milking 500 mixed age dairy cows, they strive for a yearly production target of 200,000 kgMS each season. The herd is milked twice a day all season, most seasons, and the farm is run at a Dairy NZ System 3. Fully compliant, this farm has an impressive 3-year production of 192,587 kgMS, with a best production of 206,602 kgMS, achieved milking through a 14 year old 28 ASHB dairy shed with ACR's. Other improvements include 2 x 3-bedroom homes, 2 x herd homes, calf rearing sheds, implement sheds, a workshop and hay barns.
Being part of the Fonterra whey scheme, a good fertiliser history has been established, giving a new owner confidence and the peace of mind that they are investing in productive and biologically active soils. The community owned Withy water scheme comes onto the property and supplies water for domestic, stock and dairy shed use. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a well-established, highly productive dairy farm.
