Location: 2900 Parnassus Road, Hawkswood
Property use: Sheep/Beef
Land area: 658.48 hectares
Price: Price by negotiatio­n
This 658 hectare property is presented to the market with a range of options, which, if fully realised would provide a diverse and productive farming operation, with the potential for multiple income streams, including forestry.
While predominantly a hill country grazing property, river flats and cultivatable terraces complement the hill and make up around a quarter of the total land area. This area is currently undergoing development through the first stage of an irrigation plan, with a new pivot installed last season. Utilising existing consents, a total area of approximately, 150 hectares of river flats and terraces, potentially could be irrigated.
The flats are subdivided into 28 paddocks all with excellent road or internal lane access. Pasture and fertility improvement over this area is ongoing in line with the irrigation development. The hill area (approximately 500 hectares) is subdivided into 12 blocks, with a range of contour and aspect, from medium to steep hill with some native gullies. Pasture cover varies over all hill blocks. The entire farm is very well fenced and tracked with stock water from a country scheme and natural sources.
Farm infrastructure includes a 4 bedroom, recently renovated homestead, 3 bedroom cottage and a self-contained hut suitable for accommodation or a weekend retreat. A large, modern 4 stand raised board; wool shed with covered yards is a feature on the property. A second set of sheep yards located at the back of the property, compliment the main yards. Hay shed and implement sheds. Large cattle yard with good all weather truck access.
Strategically located close to the rural service centre of Cheviot, this farm offers further development scope with potential to increase overall production and livestock performance.
