Established farm unit
Wandoo Park and Victoria Springs are about 30km from Three Springs.
Three Springs offers CBH bins, doctors, a hospital, a primary school, grocery store, sporting facilities, a machinery dealership and farming suppliers.
Secondary schooling is available in Carnamah, which is about 25km south of Three Springs.
There is a wide range of soil types throughout the properties, gravel loams (Wandoo) about 35 per cent, sandy loams (areas with yellow subsoil) about 40 per cent and light soils about 25 per cent.
The undulating topography and deep soils results in this country being well-drained.
About 4370ha (10,708 acres) were cropped in 2016.
Over the past three years, this country has systematically been transformed into a crop producing one.
Strategic fence removal and extensive paddock work has resulted in large, open and efficient cropping paddocks to suit the 12m/36m controlled traffic farming system currently in use.
Mouldboard ploughing, with lime application prior to ploughing to enhance ideal soil conditions at a deeper depth; weed management (burying seeds deeper); and improved soil condition for better water retention promotes good germination.
Deeper ripping was also practised in large areas to enhance root penetration, resulting in larger biomass and crop yields.
This is very evident in current crops, which are looking great.
To add to the value, there is a good complement of infra-structure to support cropping requirements, including strategically placed sheds in different areas on the property, as well as good-quality bore water.
The freshly renovated homestead has four bedrooms.
There is also a very good house available in Three Springs townsite.
This farming unit is large enough to justify one complete set of farming equipment, a full-time manager (for a corporate investor), and/or a person interested in financially viable farming.
Alternatively, it is ideally situated as an add-on to a local property.
This cropping farm falls in the 450mm rainfall zone.
