Large scale horticulture with irrigation
Lanitza, NSW 2460
Invest in one of the largest horticultural holdings in the region by securing this 747 acre former orchard site situated between Coffs Harbour and Grafton.
Water security is assured with 171 ML combined storage across 5 dams. All are linked by extensive irrigation systems which allows the transfer of water between the dams and to the crops beyond.
The property is sold with an Orara River irrigation licence of 47.5 megalitres plus 3 bore-water licences totalling 57 megalitres.
At its peak the farm was run as a fruit orchard growing Murcott & Michal mandarins, Tarocco blood oranges, Tahitian limes, persimmons, wine grapes and table grapes.
The options are now endless on this prime horticultural site which has been cleared of the old trees and is now rejuvenated and ready to be planted out again.
There is approximately 180 acres of cleared land ready to be planted to the variety of your choosing.
Blueberries are being grown at scale by the northern neighbour and are proven to do well in the climate, but macadamias, avacados and other tree crops are equally as suited.
Improvements include two extensive packing and machinery sheds, 30m x 10m each in size, plant nursery, office and sleeping quarters and a staff amenities block.
Powerful three phase electric pumps push the water between dams and the high voltage power lines running along the eastern boundary also make a solar farm site possible (subject to grid provider approval.)
The Farm is bounded on one edge by the Orara River and is gently undulating, so provides efficient movement of tractors and trailed machinery. Surface waters drain readily into catchments for irrigation recycling.
Beyond the horticultural potential, this farm is also a prime candidate for subdivision, with 23 lots already in existence and each with a building entitlement.
Situated 20 minutes drive from Grafton, 25 minutes from Woolgoolga and 40 minutes from Coffs Harbour, the area is fast becoming a well-known district for lifestyle buyers wanting to escape town but within easy reach of employment and the beach.
The vendors are now ready to downsize and enjoy the fruit of their labour. Please watch the video to get a good overview of the block and then call our office to arrange your inspection.
