Great op­por­tu­nity for hor­ti­cul­tur­ists

Countryman - - PROPERTY -

With the prop­erty zoned gen­eral ru­ral, it presents a rare op­por­tu­nity for hor­ti­cul­tur­ists look­ing to buy prop­erty less than an hour from Perth.

Ging­inup is a prime area with qual­ity soils, 500700mm rain fall and a Mediter­ranean climate ideal for mixed hor­ti­cul­ture, farm­ing and life­style.

The prop­erty comes with a wa­ter li­cence — 1,000,000 kilo­litre or 1000 me­gal­itre wa­ter li­cence in the Yar­ra­gadee Aquifer.

Wa­ter is sup­plied from a pro­duc­tion bore (600m deep) pro­duc­ing more than 100,000 litres of wa­ter per hour to a mas­sive hold­ing dam, el­e­vated in the mid­dle of farm.

Just be­low the main dam is the pump shed (100sqm) and fer­ti­ga­tion sys­tem.

Along­side this is the main ma­chin­ery shed, 370sqm plus 130mm lean-to and three-phase power con­nected.

There is in­come po­ten­tial from the es­tab­lished olive grove, but this farm would be ideal to de­velop centre piv­ots and fixed ir­ri­ga­tion.

Some of the olive trees could then be re­tained for buf­fers and wind pro­tec­tion.

This farm has had mil­lions of dol­lars of in­fra­struc­ture in­vested and could be a fan­tas­tic ru­ral in­vest­ment for the right own­ers who know the hor­ti­cul­ture in­dus­try and who have ac­cess to the world­wide food trad­ing busi­ness.
