A POWERHOUSE FOR PRODUCTION
In the early 1900's the North Qld gold rush ended and some well remembered Chinese market gardeners moved, settled and farmed on the very best crop land available in the Burdekin to produce the highest value crop return possible.
This 18ha (44.35acre) farm with 16.12ha of cane production area at Kennedy St Ayr on the edge town was the type of land then in great demand. Now growing sugar cane and continually tipping the tonnes and sugar per ha scale for the district time and time again.
Last year the farm produced 2,733 tonnes at an average of 170 tonnes per ha. The 2018 first and third ratoon crop will yield approximately 2,500 tonnes which can be included in the sale.
Rich in water supplies and irrigated by three centrifugal bore pumps. The farm also has the Lower Burdekin Water Board channel running alongside the property so there is always total replenishment to the underground aquifer. There is no limit to water pumped with only an annual area charge payable to the water board.
The farm is isolated and surrounded by forest and the typical Burdekin scrub palms so a perfect location for high return horticulture and small crops. It has also been totally boundary fence for protection from wallabies etc that can come from the nearby scrub.
This block has potential to be a livelihood for an interested buyer because of its location, quality of soils, past production figures and abundant water supply.
Compared to irrigated crop land in some parts of Australia this is good value for money. Call today for more information.
