FIRST CLASS FARMING WITH GROWTH POTENTIALWith 77 hectares cleared, this 111 hectare (275 acre) property is located 5 minutes west of Walkamin and 15 minutes east of Mareeba.
The well-drained, naturally sloping arable soils together with precise farming practices have seen this farm deliver results under various types of cropping. Soil type on offer is predominantly a sandy granite loam with a reddish underlay.
This farming enterprise is ready to be purchased as an immediate income earner. In the ground and established are approx. 880 lime trees, and 1500 avocado trees (Shephard and Hass) fully set up with under tree irrigation. In addition, there are 2000 newly planted passion fruit vines with a crop on the way. Also growing, but not actively farmed are a further 600 grape fruit trees.
The property runs adjacent to the west Barron main channel for approx. 2 kilometres and comes with water allocation from Tinaroo Dam. A small dam is already constructed and the natural topography at the base of Mount Emerald supports more on farm water storages - able to be filled by rainfall.
Water is pumped out of the channel from 3 sites and delivered across the farm through 150 mm class 9 PVC mainline. 1 x 55 kw electric pump and 2 x 120 hp Diesel Pumps are in place. The remainder of the cleared area is currently used to grow hay.
The sale also includes a comprehensive list of machinery and packing facility in a new 25m x 15m packing shed capable of handling multiple crops.
On farm residences include two 3-bedroom homes, with one suitable to be rented as an income earner or used as worker accommodation.
If you are looking to purchase an established horticulture property with multiple cropping options and a foot in the door to a niche market; or for a property to expand an existing operation and add your touch; then this property is certainly worthy of a private inspection to appreciate all its attributes.
