7ha Boutique Horticulture Lifestyle

From a bare land pasture block in 2000, Bakers Creek Orchard has grown into a productive and diverse horticultural enterprise featuring well-established tamarillo, feijoa, blueberry, passionfruit, raspberry and lime groves with some grazing land for beef production.

The grazing blocks could easily be converted into additional horticultural production to increase crop volume and further enhance business revenue. The orchards are well-planned, trellised and covered for shade and bird protection. Established, well-designed windbreaks of Italian alder shelter the orchards and livestock and the blocks all have good fences and are easily accessible on well-constructed gravel roads.

The metal-framed packing shed houses the grading and sorting machinery and incorporates office space and a cosy single-bedroom, self-contained home. The property also has a separate spray shed/workshop, additional three-bay machinery shed and a tunnel house for plant propagation and personal vegetable production.

Situated in Karamea at the top of the West Coast of the South Island, the farm enjoys a superb semi-tropical climate with sufficient rainfall throughout the year to not require irrigation for the crops. The farm is a short drive from the Karamea township, which offers a wide range of services, facilities and amenities including school, supermarket, hardware store, rural supplies outlet, swimming pool, tennis courts, museum, library, restaurants, bars and cafes. It is the warmest, driest region on the West Coast and the climate is superbly suited to horticultural production.

The property is NZGAP registered, supplies numerous retail outlets and has an established private customer base that will transfer to the new owner. Bakers Creek Orchard has a registered an established brand and a solid reputation for large, delicious, juicy fruit of high quality.
