LARGER CENTRAL TARANAKI DAIRY FARM
First time to the market for generations is this 250 hectare dairy farm situated at Douglas approximately 15/20 minutes drive east of Stratford.
With 200 hectares approximately milked on and the balance utilised for replacement grazing together with extra neighbouring leased land, the farm up until two seasons ago was calving 420 cows with last season 350 calved and this current season 390 cows.
Contour is a mix of flats to easy / medium hill with some areas of steeper hill.
Water supply is plentiful from two separate sources, one being spring fed and the second from a large dam.
The excellent main buildings include a outstanding modern GJ Gardener 240m² four bedroom plus office home with double garaging, large north facing deck area, inground swimming pool and spa.
There is also a second three bedroom weatherboard home ideal for staff. The cowshed is an excellent 44 bail rotary with CR’s and in-shed feed system with yard space for 500 cows. A recently upgraded cobra travelling irrigator spreads effluent pumped from ponds. An extensive range of farm buildings include 3 bay calf / supplement shed, 4 bay implement shed, 4 bay implement shed with one bay lockup workshop, large calf rearing shed plus 5 other outlying sheds.
The availability of this larger farm to the market offers the ideal opportunity for a family to purchase and take this operation forward over the years ahead.
