property has been cultivated with some tussock blocks along with some manuka/ kanuka gullies.

With the forestry opportunity the current stocking rates will change, approximately 185 ha is planned to be planted in forestry.
Improvements include a standard lands and survey style home plus woolshed and covered yards along
with standard implement sheds and hay barns.
Contour is generally flat and rolling making cultivation easy and this is evident with the regrassing our Vendors have undertaken over the past 7 years.
This excellent property is ideal as a first farm or as an addition to another farm. Dairy grazing is a strong option as it has successfully taken place in the past.
The forestry option is also another asset to the property.
The land is available for acquisition and offers are sought from potential purchasers.
