First Farm with Excellent Infrastructure Awaits

In the strong farming district of Riversdale we have this dairy opportunity to fit many budgets, whether to continue milking or utilise as a runoff is just one of the options here.

The farm is well subdivided with a central lane throughout the centre of property, it comprises flat to soft rolling contour with well-balanced soils and supported by a full range of farm buildings including an excellent 40 bail herringbone shed built in 2009. The appealing, warm, low maintenance three bedroom homestead is set in a private established garden setting which would make a lovely family home or a top managers house.

The vendor wants this property sold and has requested calling for all offers to be presented.
