A very rare opportunity has arisen to buy an extremely well located, top quality parcel of Bio Gro certified organic horticultural land and/or business. Seldom does a property of this size become available on the Heretaunga Plains, Hawke's Bay, known as the fruit bowl of New Zealand.
The 62 hectare farm (held in four record of titles) provides water consents and rich soils which have been nurtured under the current owners for over 25 years. It offers a fantastic growing environment for a wide range of uses. Cropping, vegetable production, pip fruit, viticulture, blueberries, olives, cherries and kiwifruit are all grown in close proximity to the property. This property has permanent plantings of 5.8 hectares of blueberries (4.0 hectares under cover) and grows annual crops such as carrots, onions, potatoes, pumpkin and lucerne, returning high yields. Under the 'True Earth TM' brand, the business is one of the largest suppliers of fresh certified organic vegetables and berry fruit to the New Zealand market. The brand and business is available for purchase.
A feature of the property is the beautifully positioned large three-bedroom homestead which has been tastefully refurbished, and includes a new kitchen. All this set in established grounds with fantastic northerly views overlooking the vineyards beyond. The package also includes the historical 2 stand woolshed and draught horse stables for the original Longlands Station. Additional improvements include the 1,140 square metre pack house, two cool stores totalling 156 square metres, numerous implement sheds and Portacom offices. The business includes high speed grading equipment for the blueberries, carrots and a variety of other produce, with a full complement of cropping plant and machinery also available for sale.
This is an outstanding opportunity to secure prime Hawke's Bay - New Zealand, certified organic land with scale, water, location, quality and quantity.
