Pick your farming enterprise on this highly productive rural property or split it in two and take your pick.

Rainfall for 2019 approx. 36 inches. 28 Inches is considered normal by the vendor.

Operating as a long-term organic dairy farm this property supplied the neighbouring Paris Creek Organic Dairy Farm until April 2018.

Ideal for pasture production, grazing, horticultural or viticultural enterprises the undulating slope to the South West means the lighter sandy-loams take advantage of natural drainage keeping livestock dry underfoot throughout the wet season and prevents pooling water which could potentially damage crops.

Water is abundant and a reliable feature of the property boasting an annual rainfall of approximately 800mm and there is a generous 57Ml water licence which will be transferred with the property upon settlement. With 5 dams and a bore the house and property draws bore water from a depth of 35m and tested at 18,000 gph at 1,900 ppm. The dam also pumps to irrigation infrastructure at 10,000 gph at capacity with a 3 year old 17hp motor allowing for ample water supply. There is solar connected at the dairy which offsets power consumption for the dairy and associated pumps and the dairy has been used as recently as January 2019. With a few fencing repairs and pasture renovations the property will be back into full swing in no time.

The three-bedroom stone home is situated close to the road and adds little to no value to the property unless you wanted to establish a roadside business to compliment your new enterprise (STCC).

It is time for a new home on the property and the spectacular house sites are endless with views back toward the Lower Lakes, Fleurieu and South East. Whilst the existing character cottage has seen better days it has certainly been functional enough for the current owners to live in and would easily cater for you whilst you build the dream home.

Just 10 minutes from Strathalbyn, 5 minutes from Meadows and 40 minutes from Adelaide the property comprises nearly 50 acres on the South West side of Paris Creek Road, and another 81 acres of undulating grazing pastures on the North West side of the road.

With a DSE rate of 3-4, this productive versatile property will reward passionate farmers, agri-entrepreneurs and farming families.
