Premium Irrigation Farming - Atherton.
65.15 Ha or 161 Acres approximately - Three Titles.....
Blue ribbon red soil farm in the renown golden triangle area of the dynamic Atherton Tablelands of North Qld and just a few minutes from the thriving township of Atherton.
Capable of growing almost anything, this area has a growing world-wide reputation for its outstanding production, diversity of cropping and clean, green image.
In addition to the main irrigation blocks there is approximately 2,000 sq metres under steel framed, plastic covered Greenhouse, presently producing Eggplant. This has proven very successful and lends itself to further expansion. History of crops grown in Greenhouse hydroponically, include Capsicum, Tomatoes and Ginger.
Main Irrigation Operation: This property has 300 Megs in Water Licences, supplied by three bores. This is pumped to a 7 Span T & L centre pivot irrigator, which covers 100 acres.
Two bores, including a new bore (100 - 120M deep and producing 15,000 GPH) are used in tandem, to supply the centre pivot. Both are powered by 30KW pumps.
There is another bore, which can be used as a backup but does produce less output.
There is also a hard hose travelling irrigator to cover areas not reached by the centre pivot.
Fertiliser can be distributed by a Dosatron fertigation system.
Cropping history under the Irrigation areas include Potatoes, Cane, Fine Cut Rhodes Grass (seed and hay) Corn, Pumpkins, Sweet Potatoes and Peanuts.
Improvements: Double brick main Home, with three Bedrooms, Office, one Bathroom with Spa Bath, Kitchen, granite benchtops, reverse cycle A/C, Tiled, Tulip Oak timber used in finishing Single Carport, separate Office or Utility Room and Family Entertainment Area or Smoko/Lunch Room.
New Machinery Shed/Packing Shed.
Steel frame concrete floor, high clearance roller door, multi-purpose, utility annex. Power connected.
Three double bay steel frame Machinery Shed/Workshop, concrete floor. Power connected. Single bay annex on one end.
Remarks: Rare opportunity for existing operators or new investors into the horticultural field to acquire some of the most tightly held country in the nation. These red soil blocks simply do not change hands very often in this area.
This farm is offered bare of plant and is best appreciated by inspection.
