WATER, WATER, WATER - OUTSTANDING IRRIGATION POTATO GROWING FACILITY
Some 816.3 Ha of land with a water licence for 632ML of bore water. Currently established as five pivot point irrigation circles (309m radius) with further land for another possible 4 pivot points (see irrigation plan). Underground water mains consisting of 375mm Vinidix hydro P.V.C piping from the pump house to pivot points and 200mm diam Vinidix hydro P.V.C upstands at pivot points to pivot irrigators. Also included a Detroit Diesel powered 3Phase power generation plant and 150mm stainless steel submersible bore pumps to two bores.
A 3 bedroom timber frame workers cottage with full facilities is also part of the offering and a well established olive grove of some 5,000 (approx) trees with reticulated water is an added bonus for the olive enthusiast.
An enormous storage shed (of some 780 M2 approx) with reinforced concrete floor and engineered to withstand the most inclement weather, provides potato storage and currently houses about 400m of mains and pivot upstand P.V.C. Vinidex piping for further increasing potato production. Fork lift loading is catered for and the lower ground level truck bay ensures drive on, drive off loading from the raised shed floor level.
In establishing this facility the owners have used only the highest quality materials and machinery available and with the increased diameter mains and pivot points piping set 1.8 meters below ground level they have ensured the success of future cropping by the new owners.
Certainly the olive grove bore (a six cylinder Perkins Diesel powered unit) is not to the standard of the main growing bore but it is reliable and can provide water to a pivot or the olive grove, with some maintenance to the reticulated system to the olive grove required.
If you are considering increasing your business or you are located in an area where the continued supply of quality water is becoming detrimental to the future of your business, I suggest you should inspect this property. Here water is not a problem and with a large part of our country in drought, water is the key factor in determining the profitability of your food production business.
Take this opportunity "to get your feet wet" where you know a constant water supply is at the push of a button.
Inspection by appointment or on scheduled open days (To Be Announced)
