Olive busi­ness ripe for pick­ing

Tasmanian Country - - RURAL PROPERTY -

THE owners of Cra­dle Coast Olives are re­tir­ing af­ter 43 years on their pro­duc­tive North-West prop­erty.

The prop­erty fea­tures fer­tile red basalt soils, two spring-fed dams, a 10ML ir­ri­ga­tion li­cence plus an­other 10ML li­cence which al­lows for fur­ther pro­duc­tion or diver­sity into other crops and live­stock.

But­tons Creek also flows through the prop­erty, which in­cludes sev­eral shel­ter belts and an area of black­woods.

There are ap­prox­i­mately 350 olive trees com­pris­ing five va­ri­eties, with av­er­age pro­duc­tion of 50kg per tree. Plan­ta­tions are fully ir­ri­gated via grav­ity-fed sys­tems.

The cel­lar door tast­ing build­ing ad­joins a bot­tling room while an Amer­i­can-style barn has full press­ing equip­ment and cool­rooms.

The Colo­nial-style home­stead from circa 1900 fea­tures four bed­rooms and ex­ten­sive use of tim­ber through­out with some lead­light work.

The home­stead sits amid es­tab­lished gar­dens with English trees.

The award-win­ning busi­ness is of­fered for sale on a walk-in-walk-out ba­sis.

The North-West Coast and Ulver­stone are min­utes away.
