Countryman - - PROPERTY - HAKUNA MATATA, BURAKIN-WIALKI ROAD Price Size Agent Con­tact

$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.
