Nes­tled near Mount Jagged in the stun­ning Fleurieu Penin­sula, Fair­field is just 60 min­utes south of Ade­laide. This 202ha prop­erty of premier graz­ing coun­try con­sists of two con­nect­ing ti­tles, the main two-storey home­stead sit­ting on 142ha, and a smaller 60ha ti­tle that houses a dairy, hay and im­ple­ment shed­ding and a spa­cious four-bed­room cot­tage which dates back to the 1950s .

Cur­rently ad­ver­tised on our sis­ter site farm­buy.com, Fair­field’s sur­round­ing land is pri­mar­ily sloped and fea­tures a num­ber of well-fenced pad­docks.

Fair­field also fea­tures a fully op­er­a­tional dairy, play­ing host to 156 cur­rently ac­tive milk­ers, 57 dries and 101 heifers. If that isn’t im­pres­sive enough, Fair­field’s qual­ity setup has con­trib­uted to its suc­cess at the Milk Qual­ity Awards at­tain­ing awards every year from 2010 to 2016.

Good man­age­ment prac­tices have also earned the prop­erty its cur­rent Johne’s Beef As­sur­ance Score of seven.

Mount Jagged re­ceives on av­er­age 750mm of rain­fall a year.

For the dryer times, the prop­erty uses its 180ML wa­ter li­cence, a key fea­ture of the prop­erty. The prop­erty’s wa­ter li­cence al­lows for tak­ing sur­face wa­ter from the prop­erty’s three dams, which com­bined can hold a whop­ping 173.3ML, and on top of that have a fully op­er­a­tional bore.

Fair­field also pos­sesses an­other 20-plus stock wa­ter dams and numer­ous wa­ter troughs across the prop­erty. A 30-acre pivot, a trav­el­ling ir­ri­ga­tor and 12 acres of per­ma­nent sprin­klers come with this prop­erty.

In terms of the house, this spa­cious four-bed­room, two-storey home­stead is stun­ning and high­lighted by the French pro­vin­cial kitchen. Un­der the roof is a large 501m² liv­ing area and out the back a three-car garage. The home also has a ducted air­con­di­tion­ing sys­tem for those warm SA sum­mers.

The prop­erty also boasts a heated in-ground salt­wa­ter pool that’s bor­dered by a large out­door area.
