Dairy Support and Deer

The property comprises 112 hectares of productive soil in a traditionally summer safe area. There are approximately 27 paddocks, with roughly half the area deer fenced and well maintained shelter belts are a feature of this property. The soil types vary, according to S-maps, creating a versatile property for stock management.

Soil types include Pahau Moderately Deep Silt Loam, Mayfield Moderately Deep Silt as well as Darnley, Ayreburn and Waterton Loams. Our vendors have achieved good production with their understanding of biological farming, targeting the base saturation, cation exchange capacity and applying inputs accordingly. Crop yields have been especially good, with kale, fodderbeet and maize being productive.

This year 5 hectares have been sown with fodder beet. Carrying capacity has been very good with recent numbers 210 in fawn velveting hinds, 210 R2 and above stags, 80 spikers and 80 weaner hinds. In addition there are 130 dairy heifers carried on a live-weight gain basis. The deer yards are very good and there is a large six bay barn, which is approximately 12m deep. The home is a well designed, 202sqm four-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling with thoughtful open-plan layout of the kitchen dining and living area, allowing for easy access onto the patio for outdoor living. There is also a spacious separate lounge.

There is a large carport beside the home and surrounding the home are easy care gardens, lawns and specimen trees. Near the home is a large four bay barn, 9m deep with two bays that lock-up including a small studio with a shower and toilet. Just 12km from Oxford, nestled close to the foothills, this property has a good rainfall and nearby you can enjoy fishing, hunting and hiking and still be within an hours drive of Christchurch International Airport.

The vendors would consider selling in two titles, subject to boundary approval.
