Well Located Dairy Unit + Redpath Barns


Country & Co are excited to list this dairy unit which is very well located in the reliable Charlton district, handy to both Gore and Mataura.

Infrastructure is a highlight on this property with a very good, three bedroom main home, two bedroom cottage and sleep-out. Furthermore, the addition of the Redpath herd homes somewhat future-proofs environmental issues with wintering cows. The farm is also complemented by a reliable, 32 aside herringbone shed.

The farm itself boasts strong fertility on river silt loam soils, good subdivision and short walks for the cows. Our genuine vendors would like to see this property sold and will be meeting the market, so please get in touch today.
