The farm benefits from good soils and has traditionally been used for mixed use dry land farming, with wine grapes, wheat farming, and cattle currently being farmed. The farm has one borehole which historically supplied the various farm buildings, but is now also irrigating 3ha of Lucern, with an additional 2ha of lemons under irrigations planned for this year. A substantial water system is believed to lie under the farm, offering the potential to irrigate a much larger portion of the farm.
In addition to farming activities a small wedding & function venue catering for parties of up to 140 persons has been established, with the property being in close proximity to several other venues, and with Wellington becoming an increasingly popular wedding destination. The necessary planning applications to operate the venue are in place.
Buildings on the farm, in addition to the venue, include a 3-4 bedroomed house with 2 bathrooms, a 2 bedroomed house with 1 bathroom, 3 bachelor flats, 2 x 2 bedroomed labourer’s houses and a barn. Given the farm’s proximity to Wellington and it’s excellent road access, many of the dwellings are rented out servicing the strong demand for housing locally and offering a valuable additional income. There is ample scope to develop additional rental properties.
A further 100ha of land, with 2 additional houses and several farm buildings is available on a second title deed, at an additional cost.
