Unique Large Scale Sheep and Beef


Seldom do quality large scale sheep and beef units come to the market. Country & Co are excited to be working with the Harris family, whom have farmed this property for 36 years. The farm is a true credit to the Harris', first setting foot on the property as a semi intensive run block, but after many years of hard work developing the farm they have turned it into a quality finishing block.

This property has a very good balance of land with 65% of flat to soft rolling country and 35% hill blocks, with the contour and tree belts providing top shelter. There is very good housing with a large main homestead and modern cottage, the property is supported further by a four stand flat board shearing shed, covered yards, multiple hay barns and utility sheds.

Properties of this scale don't often last on the market, and with the vendors open to a going concern this could be your opportunity to walk in and continue operating this quality farm, that has further upside.
