Considered by many as the ‘bread basket’ of New Zealand, the Mid Canterbury region is continuing to grow apace, with output across the fertile region increasing as ag-technology develops. As a result, Ashburton town is experiencing near record low vacancy across its commercial and industrial asset class and demand is strong for all areas of property in the region.
With this in mind, the timing could not be better for buyers to invest as New Zealand based meat company, Silver Fern Farms Ltd, looks to divest its significant Fairton Plant and adjoining rural land holding.
The 485 hectares of prime land are located on the north side of the Ashburton town boundary in the farming stronghold of Fairton, and comprise 32 hectares at the former Fairton Plant and 453 hectares of prime rural holding.
Astute buyers with logistics in mind will appreciate the prized position of the Fairton Plant, bordering the Ashburton Business Estate, and featuring over 1km of Main South rail line frontage. Significant cold storage improvements on the plant site generate a strong monthly rental income. Situated approximately halfway between the ports of Lyttelton and Timaru, it’s easy to see the appeal for large scale producers and exporters.
The prime rural land has significant water consents and could be further leveraged against the current bank of fertility, supporting a number of farming systems to harness increased returns from the land.
Productive soils, regular crop rotation, plus 383 hectares of border dyke irrigation, give high levels of reliable arable and pastoral production.
Mid Canterbury land is rarely available and keenly sought. Call the exclusive selling agents for further information.
