For Lease by Deadline Private Treaty

Friday 9 October 2020, 4.00pm


Lease with Various Farming Options


Our vendors have made the tough decision to take a break from farming and lease out the majority of their property. Therefore, we offer an excellent opportunity to lease approximately 178ha, situated in the popular Riversdale district.

The farm is in tremendous heart and has been well cared for, with pastures and fertility being a key focus. Currently this property is being run as a conventional sheep and beef unit, but having flat to soft rolling contour provides a wide range options for land use, such as cereal cropping or cut and carry.

The Lessors will be retaining the homestead and majority of the support buildings, but they do offer these up to use for the successful Lessee if they require them.
