PIONEER CANE FARM WITH EXCELLENT LAYOUT
- Land: 120 ha (296 acres)
The vendor has spent a lifetime on this 296 acre property and it has come the time to take life easier and do a little travel. It has an impressive lay out, designed for viability and ease of operation.
There are 260 acres of cane cultivation, with a 2018 crop estimate of 10,000 tonnes. It usually supplies Pioneer Mill but because it has close access to a siding, only 300 meters away can also supply Kalamia mill when necessary. The property is on 7 Titles and tucked away from built-up areas, which makes it ideal for alternate crops that may require crop spraying without annoying the neighbours. Most of the irrigation run off is also channeled to a large recycle pit and utilised as cheap water for cost saving.
There are three open water pumps drawing from the North Burdekin Water Board channel, running the full length of the property and three bore pumps drawing from the aquifer. There is also a diesel driven recycle pump. All pumps are interconnected with concrete and poly underground pipeline, with water outlets at regular intervals at valves or concrete cylinders. The process of water mixing open and bore water is utilised to give excellent quality water for best soil and crop health.
Included in the sale is a large machinery shed, workshop and two homes. One is a 4 bedroom, block, air-conditioned home with a new double carport and 3 car lockable garage. The other is a 3 bedroom, fibro home which is currently rented for $185.00 per week.
The 2014 crop, machinery and implements are included in the sale (list available). The high levels of CCS are evident with first cut cane already averaging over 15 CCS. Soils range from loams to heavy black giving the opportunity to grow a large range of crops with flood or trickle irrigation.
