Price Upon Application
'CARSIM FARMS''Carsim Farms' is a 4,185 Ha grain growing operation located in the Binnu area of the highly regarded Northern wheatbelt shire of Northampton. Available to purchase as a complete operation or on separate parcels.
Established just south of Binnu in 1910 on the home farm Googoolili, this family operation has been developed, improved and increased over the years by 3 generations of astute farmers.
The complete operation includes 4 farms, located on 12 titles with highway frontage and a combined total of approximately 3,114 ha of productive cropping land. The croppable areas are level to slightly undulating and consist of a balance of heavy red loams, medium yellow sand over gravel and a portion of lighter yellow sand plain. Original vegetation for these soil types comprise York Gum, Jam, Tammar, Tea Tree and Pine. The historically reliable rainfall suggests an average of 350mm annually.
Soil management and health has been an integral component of the cereal, lupin and canola cropping program, with deep ripping and lime applications performed over the properties for many years. Deep ripping is currently completed to a maximum depth of 400mm. Controlled Traffic Farming has also been instrumental in the program, with all machinery operating on a 13.6m or 45' swath width.
Complementing this highly regarded farm is very comfortable 4-bedroom 1 bathroom, brick and tile, family home, with a refreshing, undercover, below ground pool and separate spa. Comfort has been embraced, with a modern, well designed kitchen, ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, ceiling fans and a charming wood heater. Providing seasonal accommodation is the separate, 3-bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1950's fibro home, complete with air-conditioning and ceiling fans.
Fertiliser, grain, fuel and machinery are all stored on the Googoolili property, through a combination of infrastructure. Grain storage capacity is approximately 200 ton over 6 silos. Fertiliser storage capacity is approximately 280 ton, in a cemented 18m x 12m shed. There are 2 machinery sheds, 32m x 15m and 18m x 12m, plus a 29mx 12m shearing shed that has been converted to a sizeable workshop with attached meat room and cool room. A sea container housing the 13kva, backup diesel generator is also included with the property.
Spraying can be conducted from all 4 farms, with 3 of the water sources being equipped with solar pumps and the remaining farm relying on a windmill. This farm previously had a power connection in place next to the water source.
"Googoolili", "Iona", "Tynedale" and "Ruffins South" are again experiencing a solid year with approximately 1700 ha of wheat, 750 ha of canola and 650 ha of lupins, making up this year's rotation.
With an enviable location and productive soils, I encourage you to contact me for a more comprehensive information booklet.
