Blackwood River Family Farm

    Tranquil Paradise in the Heart of Blackwood River Valley: A Unique Opportunity

    Discover a slice of paradise nestled in the enchanting Shire of Boyup Brook, within the serene embrace of the picturesque Blackwood River Valley. Welcome to an exceptional property that seamlessly combines natural beauty, fertile landscapes, and an array of potential opportunities.

    Location and Surroundings

    Situated at the crossroads of natural beauty and rural charm, this 80.99-hectare (200-acre) farm is a haven of tranquillity. Nestled within the embrace of the Blackwood River Valley, the property is flanked on two sides by the Nollajup Nature Reserve, ensuring a sense of seclusion and a direct connection to nature. The nearby Blackwood River, accessible for fishing and kayaking from both Boyup Brook and Bridgetown, adds an aquatic dimension to the property's allure. Boyup Brook town is conveniently located a mere 8 kilometres away, while the town of Bridgetown lies approximately 25 kilometres from the property.

    Bountiful Land and Water Resources

    The farm's undulating terrain offers not only a stunning visual landscape but also fertile soils that encompass granite, red loam, and charming granite outcrops shaded by majestic trees. The lush pastures are adorned with Ryegrasses and Clover, creating a vibrant canvas of greenery. A portion of the land was reseeded with Ryegrass, and the resulting hay harvest exemplifies the property's productivity.

    Three ground water dams, two water pumps, and a bore equipped with a submersible pump and generator ensure a consistent and ample water supply. With a combined capacity of 155,000 litres, a rainwater tank and a 23,000-litre water tank provide further water storage solutions. These resources are efficiently harnessed through a dedicated 2-kilometer gravitational, sub-surface water pipe, delivering trough water to 7 paddocks designed for rotational grazing. The infrastructure also accommodates future expansion with 3 additional troughs already plumbed and ready for use.

    Unveiling Business Opportunities

    This property isn't just a farm; it's a canvas for entrepreneurial endeavours. The current owner has established a successful Livestock Lease Agreement, working collaboratively with another farmer to raise approximately 500 Ultra White sheep (Breeding Ewes). The resultant Lamb/Mutton is skilfully prepared, with half and full carcasses dressed for sale to around 170 loyal customers. The supply chain involves processing at the reputable Dardanup Butchery Company/Abattoir, followed by pickup by customers at a dedicated Perth Butcher.

    The entrepreneurial spirit doesn't end here. The property's Farmstay venture, managed through Hipcamp, has gained remarkable popularity, attracting visitors from far and wide. With bookings often fully reserved during long weekends, this venture presents an excellent opportunity to further develop hospitality offerings.

    Comfortable Living and Facilities

    The property features a 5-bay machinery shed, two of which have been enclosed and concreted. Within the enclosed area, an impressive transformation has taken place. A kitchen, cozy living area with a wood fireplace, and 5 bedrooms have been thoughtfully created, offering a comfortable and inviting living space. Additionally, a Donga Sleeping Accommodation Unit rests at the back of the shed, complete with a fully equipped bathroom and instantaneous hot water supply, all connected to a septic system.

    The property harnesses sustainable energy with solar panels and boasts backup generators, including a 3.5kW and an 8kW unit.

    Unlimited Potential and Beyond

    The potential within this property extends far beyond its current endeavours. Future plans and materials have been meticulously arranged to catalyse development. The property comes with onsite building materials for a 48m2 Cabin, including roof trusses, posts, and Colorbond sheets. Additionally, 279m2 of chipboard (2 pallets) and Alfresco materials roof trusses, posts, and polycarbonate roof sheeting are poised for realization.

    Noteworthy vehicles and equipment are available for acquisition, presenting a seamless transition for the incoming steward of this remarkable property.
