The centre pivot paddock produces Lucerne and the 17 Acre paddock is mainly Rhodes grasses and Silk Sorghum. There are another two areas adjacent to the road into the property which are cut on a dryland basis when season allows and are predominantly Rhodes grass and some legumes.
There are underground mains and hydrants in place for these two areas. There is an estimated total of 120 acres that could be put under irrigation on this farm.
• Three Bores and one with a Windmill. Not in use but good water. Was used to supply three troughs.
• Three licensed pumps access water from the Broughton River via Spears and Submersibles in the riverbed sand.
The house pump site has been converted to a three phase 15kw submersible pump and the inlet has been moved further out from the bank to tap into the main water body under the riverbed.
The pump site nearest the entrance is also mains electrically powered (3 Phase) and is a centrifugal pump but is not in use at present. The third pump site is also not in use. The House pump site supplies all water for Irrigation requirements.
• There are two newer bores one is a mains powered new submersible which supplies the house and nearby troughs and the other would suit a solar unit and can supply the yards and several troughs.

The Farming Operation: This Owner has elected to specialise in hay supply, however this farm has history growing more intensive small crops including Mangos, Paw Paws, Citrus and Vegetables.
Here is a high-quality opportunity to invest in a viable irrigation enterprise with plenty of room to expand and already established, with a solid turnover and ready sale for all product that is put to the market.
The grazing aspect of this farm has had a good spell and this area of the farm presents in very good shape, with plenty of grass following a good 2018-2019 wet season.
The two operations, (grazing and irrigation) can be combined quite easily and the property could suit a grazier who wants to run a few cattle and underpin their fodder supply to their beef operation wherever that may be situated.
The whole farm is set in a highly attractive, quiet and private setting and will not disappoint, upon inspection.
The initial setting up is in place and there is plenty of room for someone to take it to the next level with scope for expansion.
For Private Sale: $1,850,000 WIWO.
