'RAVENHOE' - AUCTION 12/10/17 AT 1PMAfter 107 years of family farming, a unique opportunity is being offered to purchase Ravenhoe Farm, by public auction on the 12 October 2017 at the Northampton Community Centre.
Located in the tightly held area of Ogilvie with bitumen road frontage just 25km north of Northampton, this
well set up property has been a consistently reliable performer for generations of the Chick family for over 107 years!
Prior to 2006 the emphasis was on wool production, with a substantial flock of Merino sheep run annually. Clover, lupins, barley and wheat were grown on a rotation basis. Since 2006, sheep have been removed and the undulating red loam, sand over gravel and easy working, yellow sand plain soils have been rotationally cropped with wheat, lupins and canola.
Over this period the operation has received several applications of lime and prior to the 2016 season, all the currently cropped sand plain was deep ripped. The cropped area for 2017 is approximately 1828 acres and given the season, looks to be in a very good position. The potential cropping area for the farm is given as approximately 2211 acres.
Complementing this great property is a very generous amount of infrastructure. Ravenhoe has two air-conditioned, 3 x 1 homes plus a below ground pool, massive 50m 18m machinery shed, 100t sliding roof fertiliser shed, 6 stand shearing shed, 12 x 26m dome hay shelter plus numerous other large storage sheds.
There is also the opportunity to go back into livestock, as Ravenhoe has very good stock infrastructure, with 20 paddocks, a shearing shed and solid sheep yards. In recent times, small mobs of cattle have been fattened on the property.
This highly regarded farming enterprise will be sold, available for settlement in February 2018. If you are looking for a farm that will provide you with longevity, I would suggest this is it! Don't miss a once in 3 generation opportunity! Inspection is highly recommended.
