This 848.3443 hectare property is a landmark Hawke's Bay station. Coming to market for the first time since 1859, the continuous family ownership makes this sale a once in a lifetime opportunity.
With its scale and location this property will attract significant interest. Olrig is one of the largest easy contoured properties to come to market in recent years in Hawke's Bay.
Under recent management there has been significant investment made in water and water reticulation plus subdivision, allowing for intensive bull farming on much of the flat to very easy contoured part of the station. Significant all weather lanes allow trucks to access the back of the property at all times.
These factors combined, of water, lanes, paddock reconfiguration plus a component of cropping and pasture renovation has improved the productive capacity of the station. This focused development programme now presents an opportunity for new owners to engage in a range of livestock finishing enterprises.
A significant component of Olrig's farming policy is the wintering of up to 1200 bulls across two age groups, up to 1200 ewes to terminal sires, heifers for local trade plus trading lambs are used when applicable.
A full range of farming infrastructure by way of multiple yards for sheep and cattle, the large single storey seven stand woolshed plus a large amount of station auxiliary buildings. The Olrig homestead and two other dwellings make this a blue ribbon property. Corporate and family farmers seeking operational scale within the Hawke's Bay region are strongly advised to contact the vendor's agent for an early inspection of this iconic, quality station.
