I am proud to present this immaculate property to you at 196 Mt Lawless Road, Gayndah. Driving on to the orchard for the first time you will immediately notice the pride that has been taken and how everything is not only well maintained but excellently presented from the abundant healthy fruit trees to the organised packing shed with state of the art plant and equipment.
This mandarin orchard is set on 25.3 ha (approx. 61 acres) and bounders the Burnett River, offering an abundant water supply.
There are roughly 2568 Imperial, 1789 Murcott, totalling approximately 4356 trees. 1955 trees were planted in 2007 to 2008. There is a combination of troyer and cleo rootstock with 172 top worked Imperial. Projected harvest for this year totals approximately 1050 bins, which projects a high yielding return on your investment.
Water allocation is generous consisting of 130 Megalitres with the potential to harvest 88 megalitres from flood water. A new irrigation system was installed in 2009 from the river to the trees with a 40hp electric motor and underground mains, there is a DUX water filter at top of the river bank. The Electric starter has an hour timer located in the shed at the top of the bank. There are Flush out taps on each block and there are 7 blocks which are easy to control. The orchard will reach full production 2018 /2019 with a combination of established and young trees.
This orchard has been set out for easy operation to minimise cost and labour. The packing shed is well equipped, with a total area of approximately 1530 m2. The production line of plant and equipment in the shed not only easily handles its own supply of fruit but contracts to neighbouring orchards in the packing of their fruit.
Inside the shed is a massive coldroom of approximately 126m2 and can hold 60 pallets on the floor. There is a quantity of stands for double stacking increasing its holding capacity. All of the equipment in the shed is of high quality and well maintained making a smooth and efficient operation.
If your thinking of expanding the family farm, this property is perfect for the son/daughter or family member allowing not only the corporate family business to grow but giving the younger generation the freedom to spread their wings.
It is a farm that is self-sufficient, being a stand-alone business, supplying good returns and opens extensive opportunities for any enthusiastic person.
All the hard work has been done, just move in and start operating...
