Arguably one of the largest and most beautifully sited orchards in the Bay of Plenty, this 64.9116 ha is wrapped by the Tauranga harbour.
The orchard currently supports approximately 28 ha of Hass avocado trees aged between 13 and 16 years. Mature shelter surrounds the established blocks and protects from prevailing winds.
Orchard management has recently planted several blocks of kiwifruit. 1.31 can/ha of Hayward is yet to reach production maturity, while 2.53 can/ha of G3 Sungold (half at full production) has received early start payments in the past. Gold kiwifruit has far outstripped green kiwifruit in value and returns per tray. Visionary orchardists who have an overview of the global horticultural markets will see the future in gold kiwifruit and could opt for a total orchard conversion to this internationally lucrative crop.
The province attracts investment in horticulture and is the largest producer of kiwifruit and avocados, with orchardists enjoying access to Zespri Kiwifruit and New Zealand Avocados' sophisticated industry structure and professional management.
The orchard is served by excellent infrastructure, ample shedding and load out areas. Irrigation is from the property's own bore and the kiwifruit investment is backed up by a fully automated zoned frost protection system. The dwelling on the property is a solid brick house built in the 1960s when this was a dairy farm.
While the attraction for investment and scope to maximise financial returns from this orchard Is obvious, the lifestyle to be derived here is priceless.
