$930,000 1562ha Landmark Harcourts Simon Cheetham, 0428 147 359
Currently used for cropping but with livestock in its history, Hakuna Matata, just west of Beacon, comprises three adjoining lots set over two titles.
With frontage to Burakin-Wialki Road and secondary frontage to Mandiga Marindo Road, the property comprises 1562ha, of which 1397ha have been shown by independently prepared satellite maps to be arable.
Soil types have been described as being excellent overall, with the majority being an even mix of heavy and medium types and 20 per cent as light soils. The property is slightly undulating and relatively elevated.
While the owners have shifted their focus in recent years to a program dominated by cropping, the property would be suitable for a mixed farming operation.
This year’s program comprises wheat and barley.
In recent years, the fertiliser history has included CSBP Agstar being applied at 70kg/ha, with 50kg/ha of CSBP Mallee, which has an increased sulphur content, being applied in 2018.
CalSap has been applied to the entire property and Flexi-N has been applied depending on the season.
Water is supplied via four dams and two scheme water meters.
Most fencing is in good condition, with some sections being relatively new.
A four-bedroom home on the property benefits from a large extension that has substantially increased the living area. It also has a double Colorbond garage.
Farm infrastructure includes a 9m x 6m workshop, an 18m x 14m machinery shed, a 12m x 5.5m general purpose shed, a 150-tonne capacity fertiliser shed and two sealed Moylan silos of 2700 bushels and 2400 bushels.
Two Flexi-N tanks offer 42,000 litres and 23,000 litres capacity, while two 23,000-litre water tanks are used for spraying and additional tanks are used to harvest rainwater from sheds. Annual shire rates are currently $5361 per annum.
“Hakuna Matata means ‘no worries’, and with everything going for this farm, the lucky buyer shouldn’t have anything to worry about either,” said Landmark Harcourts agent Simon Cheetham.
