Dovedale Dairy is a 161 Hectare mixed contour dairy farm incorporating two titles situated at 1517 Dovedale Road. The A2 dairy herd supplies Fonterra and a local liquid milk processor for premium returns. This contract is with the current owner and could possibly be transferred to a new owner if they met certain criteria. The hub of the operation is the 54 bale high spec rotary cowshed along with the other farm improvements all in excellent condition and centrally placed for ease of operation. There is one house - a four bedroom open plan bungalow.
Ample water for irrigation is supplied by a 250 million litre storage dam with the 50ha of flats irrigated by K-Line. Domestic, stock and cowshed water is supplied by a well. The effective area of the farm is about 138ha and currently 390 cows are milked once a day. Apart from the 50ha of the flats, 20ha is rolling with the balance in medium to steep hill. There is a 4ha block of native bush in QEII covenant and a 3.8ha block of trees.
This impressive property has the water to develop horticulture if a change in land use is desired and being only 40km to Richmond allows a new owner to experience the convenience and the best that the Nelson lifestyle has to offer.
