Avocado and gold kiwifruit orchard with growth potential
An exceptional production orchard with plenty of potential in it to provide increasing earnings in the future. Of over 400 avocado trees, 260 (including pollinators) are upwards of four years old with many years of early start harvests to come. 150 are large mature fruiting trees. This year's yield of 7,000 trays from the .43ca ha block of gold kiwifruit is its best yet, with even better predicted. This dual crop orchard has excellent infrastructure by a conscientious and innovative orchardist happy to share his methods and expertise for the benefit of the new owner.
The 5.1875 ha property is extremely sunny and well sheltered around the perimeter and the blocks, creating its own microclimate. Buildings include an 8 x 8 metre implement shed and the current dwelling, a clever off-grid barn conversion powered by seven solar panels. The deck and fun outdoor baths overlook the spring fed ponds (with waterfalls) of an attractive wetland running through the property. There is space for a new house to be built beside the existing one, and another good house site, or a paddock to plant more horticulture, at the entrance to the orchard. The property is located off SH 2 a few minutes south of Katikati. Boundary indicative only.
