Well planned and managed apple and pear orchard using European technology. Five water dams, computerized irrigation, hail netting and an automatic apple harvester stand for state of the art agricultural technology. The two properties of 100 acre (home block) and 70 acre (school block) can be bought separately or together.
The property has a good production history with the orchard being established since 1988. On average more than 1000 tons of fruit, a variety of easily marketable apples and pears, have been produced each year. With two cold rooms, a packing shed, tool sheds and the machinery park you will find whatever necessary for cultivation and storage.
A large, modern home and a smaller cottage can either be used for own purposes or be rented out.
The farm is situated in the Stanthorpe Shire, a 2 ½ hours drive from Brisbane and 2 hours from the Gold Coast, 1 mile west of the New England Highway, 2 miles to the next elementary school and 10 miles to the nearest high school. The Heritage Wine Estate is the next-door neighbour.
The farm is owned by an Australian company that has been designed for this purpose only. If desired the company can be bought including the property and the machinery, which can facilitate the acquisition by a foreigner.
