Glenelg is a 197 hectare, traditional, high producing, breeding and finishing unit comprised in two separate blocks. Situated right on the boundary of the rural service centre of Hawarden, its location could not be more central in the local area.
The property is flat in contour with slightly heavier, summer-safe soils that are supported by established farm infrastructure including sheep and cattle yards, a woolshed, implement sheds, good stock water and fencing. Outstanding established trimmed shelter belts are a feature of this property.
The property traditionally carries approximately 1300 ewes and 300 hoggets, with all lambs being finished on farm, in addition to 30 cattle which are bought in as calves. The property is currently in permanent pasture with approximately 40 hectares being in a mix of lucerne, green feed oats and rape. It has also historically grown extensive wheat and barley crops.
A well maintained, warm, three-bedroom family home, complete with modern kitchen and double glazing, sits within an established garden setting on the house block.
Three purchasing options are available to prospective purchasers that afford first farm opportunities, add-on potential to existing operations or the total property as a well located, intensive and productive breeding and finishing unit with a solid history.
Strong irrigation potential exists for this property to join the Amuri Irrigation Company's revised Hurunui scheme. The PDS is available and applications close later in the month.
