Apotu Road, Whangarei
" KAURI FARMS "
A quality dairy unit with size and scale rarely found in Northland.
The current owners have developed the Farm over the last 16 years.
Ten titles make up the 538 hectares, all being flat. The current owner operates a split calving system, regularly milking 1,050 cows, with a top production of 499,632 kg ms (2017 – 2018). This season 830 cows will be milked with all replacements run on farm and surplus maise silage will be sold.
A modern fully automated 80 bale rotary milking complex with a Protract drafting system. A covered vet race, two concrete feed pads and a calving pad are in close proximity to the Farm dairy. A large calf rearing facility and implement buildings, cattle yards and loading race complete the infrastructure.
Four race systems provide a good heard flow to and from the Farms 200 paddocks. A quality water supply is from a spring fed stream.
The Kikuyu free pastures are in very good heart and the soil fertility have been maintained with an annual fertiliser dressing.
Accommodation on the Farm is a 4-bedroom Cape Cod style home, a well maintained 3-bedroom home, 1-bedroom studio and two single bedroom self-contained units.
The Farms scale and production compare favourably with other regions, however, Northlands significantly lower land values provide a far greater return on investment.
The Farm is located approximately 6kms North of the Whangarei City boundary. Much development is now occurring in Northland with significant road and rail infrastructure investment, together with the new Hundertwasser development and recently announced conference centre and hotel development, Northland is fast becoming the go-to region.
