Established Waikato kiwifruit orchards
In a microclimate of its own in Pirongia, and within the confines of a larger property, are two kiwifruit orchards established some 20 years ago on fertile free draining soils.
Both orchards are Hayward kiwifruit and the male vines within both orchards are planted in a strip male/female row regime with alternating female and male vine rows.
The Johnson Road orchard has 9.29 canopy hectares with 1.1 hectares of new development. The proposed subdivision plan is to expand to a total of 18.8100 hectares (subject to survey) to allow for additional planting, as well as an additional 5045 sqm (subject to survey) lifestyle block on a separate title.
There is a groundwater take consent for kiwifruit irrigation at Johnson Road and this adds to the appeal.
Infrastructure includes a three bedroom cottage plus an implement shed, disused dairy shed and a storage barn.
Penny Road orchard is 7.6 canopy hectares with loading out area on 10.1 hectares (subject to survey). Irrigation is already in place. There are no buildings inside this orchard.
The opportunity to purchase these established orchards offers a significant future advantage for those involved in the horticulture industry.
With the farm practically bordering Pirongia, the location is great, being just 8 km from the rural service town of Te Awamutu and an easy 31km drive to the business hub of Hamilton.
Options to purchase are for the entire 302 hectare dairy farm and two kiwifruit orchards as a whole. Alternatively, the subdivision can be completed allowing the kiwifruit orchards to be purchased independently from the dairy farm.
The subdivision would increase the number of titles from seven currently to ten.
