Tidy Performing Dairy Unit

This Waikaka Valley property is an ideal opportunity to purchase a tidy, 161 hectare dairy unit. Located 19.5km to Gore and on the boundary of Southland and West Otago, the farm has easy rolling contour and provides well maintained farm buildings, including a 30 aside herringbone dairy shed with feed system and circular yard.

The character homestead is renovated throughout, with a modern kitchen, bathroom, four bedrooms and office, overlooking the farm in an attractive, north-facing setting.

For the last ten years our out of town vendors have had a 50/50 sharemilker operating the property, who have maintained the farm like their own. Peak milking 415 cows and consistently achieving 190,000kg MS, being the three year average. Inspection is a must.
