Genuine Sheep and Beef Unit


This farm is a genuine sheep and beef unit situated in Northern Southland, less than 10 minutes from Mossburn, only a 40 minute drive to Te Anau, or 45 minutes to Winton.
Comprising flat contour with a gentle roll in places, and a good lane system provides easy stock movement back to the three stand woolshed, and cattle yards.
The vendors have planted many trees over the years, and these now provide excellent shelter throughout the farm. A well provides water to troughs in most paddocks, and this has been historically reliable over the drier periods. There is currently a neighbouring dairy lease of 40 ha in place providing additional cashflow as well as a different land use for the farm. Complemented by a lovely modernised family home in a well kept mature sheltered setting.
The vendors have priced the farm realistically for sale and invite your inspection.
