Wellington farm for sale on the Berg River

A 58ha farm located on the Berg River... waiting for you to take it to the next level. All infrastructure has been recently developed and is smartly done and well thought out. Completely unexploited, the property has great potential to become either a stock farm or to become a production unit for growing lucerne, grapes, nuts, fruit or blueberries.
The farm is currently planted to ± 25ha of lucerne producing around 14 000 bales per annum (15ha of this already in its 3rd year of production and irrigated by a centre pivot; 5ha now in its 2nd year of production, and the remaining 5ha still in its 1st year of production). The property also has ± 8ha planted to pecan nuts and a further ± 15ha is being used for exotic game farming, with game fenced pastures.

Water is listed at 30ha (150 000m³ p/a) from the Berg river Scheme and distributed via a well designed irrigation system that allows for the whole property to be irrigated in 2 days. A municipal water point is also available for drinking water.
Improvements consist of a newly built 300m² shed with ablution facilities and store room; attached to this is a 800 m² open shed for food storage and cattle feeding area. Set to one side is a state of the art cattle handling facility. A Wendy house provides accommodation for the one staff member working on the farm.
The surrounding area is quiet and rural - real country living without any intrusion from urban sprawl - and access to the farm is via a gravel road. The nearest town is Wellington where you will find all the major banks and supermarkets. This farm doesn't have a homestead - one has never been built - and there are a few ideal settings to choose from where you can build a house with wonderful views of the Boland mountains.
