Mixed-farm­ing ven­ture Tren­tham sits within the well-known farm­ing lo­cal­ity of Jin­galup, south-west of Ko­jonup.

Orig­i­nal veg­e­ta­tion on the 689-hectare prop­erty com­prise red gum, flooded gum, jar­rah and wan­doo, with soil types be­ing gran­ite loams to medium grav­elly for­est loams.

Agent David Jan­nings said lo­cal farmer con­sid­ered these soil types to be the most ver­sa­tile and pro­duc­tive on of­fer in the Ko­jonup farm­ing dis­trict.

Tren­tham has been fenced into 18 main pad­docks, which are wa­tered by 18 dams and one soak.

Fenc­ing is suit­able for stock­ing sheep and an ad­di­tional laneway sys­tem al­lows easy ac­cess from most pad­docks to the shear­ing shed and yards.

An ad­di­tional set of bu­gle sheep yards with a dou­ble un­der­cover race have been strate­gi­cally lo­cated at a junc­tion in the laneway, closer to the other end of the farm.

Fronting Jeffs Road, the four-stand long-board shear­ing shed and sheep yards are in sound work­ing or­der. A large steel tank sup­plies rain­wa­ter to both the com­plex and for spray­ing.

Crop­ping for the past few years has in­volved a ce­real-canola ro­ta­tion, with 190 hectares of canola stub­ble set up for a ce­real crop in the com­ing sea­son.

Ar­eas ad­ja­cent to the win­ter-run­ning creek have been es­tab­lished to peren­ni­als and salt bush, pro­vid­ing sum­mer graz­ing for live­stock.

Water is retic­u­lated to these pad­docks via a large dam and a series of troughs.

An­other fea­ture of Tren­tham is a five-bed­room, three-bath­room dou­ble-brick farm­house set among green lawns, with the gar­den hav­ing a below-ground swim­ming pool and shady trees.

The home is sur­rounded on two sides by ve­ran­das and an un­der­cover deck­ing area looks over the pool area.

The out­build­ings are typ­i­cal of a Ko­jonup graz­ing prop­erty, with smaller ma­chin­ery sheds, a work­shop, fer­tiliser bays, two 2000-bushel el­e­vated si­los and one seed silo.
