Superbly Sited Production Orchard
Just five minutes off SH2, on arguably the largest flat plateau in lower Whakamarama Road, this 4.5158 hectare orchard has its focus on kiwifruit but also sports a block of avocado trees. The green kiwifruit is in three blocks, 2.28can/ha of mature fruit and 0.25can/ha of new vines in their first year of production.
The avocado orchard has some 150 trees, some very mature and around 75 of them 4-6 year old Dusa stock demonstrating excellent potential for their next crop; the removal of a shelter belt creating space to plant more trees.
The entire orchard is exceptionally sheltered and sunny, running east to west along an old airstrip. It is semi irrigated with spray and fertilisation programmes in place. Buildings span a well-appointed lunchroom with amenities, a large high stud concrete floored implement shed with doors front and side, and an orchard workers' toilet. A ride on orchard mower and a Kawasaki four-wheeler with trailer are included. There is efficient access around the orchard, a paper road running along one boundary.
This well managed orchard which has been developed and tended by one family for over 30 years would be an ideal addition to a portfolio or a great stand-alone orchard on which to build a home in a popular well serviced rural location within easy reach of Tauranga.
