`Kautuku' is a multi-purpose farming business on the doorstep of Hastings. Situated some 10 kilometres west of Hastings, this 420 hectare property has it all. The options here are endless and the current owners of thirty plus years are handing it on in great heart.
The farm is used as a cropping/finishing unit. There are some 60 hectares of flats - all world class Twyford soils with a water consent in place allowing for 58,500 cubic metres per month at a take of 31 litres per second. A myriad of crops have been grown and given the soil types, a large-scale orchard venture is extremely viable.
The easy rolling hills are great for winter lamb trading, complimenting the new grass paddocks on the flats. Lifestyle options are endless given its proximity to the twin cities with good road access available on both sides of the Taihape Road and a choice of five current titles.
The farm has not one but two lakes. The fully contained Kautuku lake is a fantastic home for water-fowl and well planted with lovely house sites around it. One of the titles also has part ownership of Lake Rununga on the southern boundary. The farm has a full complement of farming infrastructure; a four-stand woolshed with large attached sheep yards and a covered race with a three-way drafter is centrally located. Large gable workshop with mezzanine floor, and pit, plus attached four-bay and two-bay implement sheds. Good Te Pari cattle yards, second large set of sheep yards above the lake plus 31 hectares of deer farm with shed and yard. There is a comfortable three-bedroom 1950's cottage with attached single garage at the front of the farm.
Well fenced and subdivided with pumped water from a bore giving trough water in all paddocks. A very strong fertiliser history backed up by tests and the grass covers currently evidenced coming off a very tough Hawke's Bay drought. This farm is hard to fault given its mix of land classes, location and presentation.
