Model dairy farm - 460 acres

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - VIEW.COM.AU -

Lo­cated six kilo­me­tres north of Dar­num vil­lage, a 460 acre dairy farm­ing con­cern will ful­fil the dream of any­one with an as­pi­ra­tion to be­gin their own dairy en­ter­prise or look­ing to move into a large, go­ing con­cern.

This com­pre­hen­sive farm­ing prop­erty is on two ti­tles and in­cludes sta­teof-the-art dairy tech­nol­ogy, ex­cel­lent farm in­fra­struc­ture, 360 de­gree views across gen­tly un­du­lat­ing land and an ex­cel­lent four bed­room Porter Davis home, built in 2007.

Con­structed in 2006, the 50 bale ro­tary shed was de­lib­er­ately de­signed as a sin­gle man op­er­a­tion which has been strate­gi­cally po­si­tioned at the cen­tre of the acreage al­low­ing easy man­age­ment and over­see­ing of the land.

Both toi­let and of­fice fa­cil­i­ties are pro­vided and a backup gen­er­a­tor is wired to the dairy and to the home.

Noth­ing has been over­looked in de­vel­op­ing this farm as shown to­day, it dis­plays thought­ful prac­ti­cal­ity, borne from an ex­pe­ri­enced dairy op­er­a­tor, with ap­ti­tude in herd and pas­ture pro­duc­tion.

In­fra­struc­ture is of high qual­ity and built for ease of use, low labour costs and with min­i­mal on­go­ing main­te­nance, al­low­ing valu­able time to be utilised on man­age­ment and in­creas­ing pro­duc­tion.

With ex­cel­lent soil com­po­si­tion and bal­ance, the farm is de­signed to be full pas­ture pro­duc­ing, pro­vid­ing fod­der on farm with only min­i­mal grain sup­ple­ment­ing, with a ma­jor fo­cus be­ing on soil bal­ance and grass qual­ity.

Other shed­ding is well placed across the prop­erty and in­cludes a six bay ma­chin­ery and calv­ing shed and hay shed plus there’s ex­cel­lent fenc­ing with up­graded cat­tle race­ways de­signed for easy op­er­a­tion.

A brand new barn sits next to a 40m x 60m ma­nege and round yard and equine pad­docks next to this are equally suited to cat­tle/equine op­er­a­tion.

Space and com­fort are the key fea­tures of the large brick ve­neer fam­ily home which in­cludes four bed­rooms (in­clud­ing the main with a pri­vate en­suite and walk in robe), two bath­rooms and two stun­ning, light filled liv­ing ar­eas.

Con­tem­po­rary de­sign, high end fix­tures and strik­ing dé­cor all con­trib­ute to an invit­ing and re­laxed in­te­rior which makes the most of the gor­geous views thanks to large win­dows in all the liv­ing ar­eas and the main bed­room suite – de­lib­er­ately po­si­tioned across the north­ern side.

Al­fresco liv­ing/din­ing ac­cessed from the open plan fam­ily space is fur­ther en­hanced with a spa plus the long views to the Baw Baw Ranges – beau­ti­ful!

An­other high­light is a third liv­ing area – a great kids’ re­treat/theatre room and there’s a dou­ble auto garage un­der roof line – all set in low main­te­nance gar­den.

Lo­cated at the end of a no through road, the prop­erty also of­fers se­cu­rity and pri­vacy yet it is only min­utes to Dar­num vil­lage, the Free­way en­trance or to War­ragul.

A me­moran­dum of in­for­ma­tion about the farm at 135 Brook­ers Road in Dar­num is avail­able on re­quest by con­tact­ing Jackie Shearer, 0437 966 769, from Alex Scott in War­ragul, 5623 4744.

This ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity will not be long on the ta­ble, as this stan­dard of shed and home is a rare find in the Dairy in­dus­try to­day.

The farm is on the mar­ket for $4,725,000.
