This unique 24ha Whakamarama property combines an established kiwifruit and avocado orchard plus a blueberry fruit production operation developed alongside a beautiful landscape featuring towering trees reflected in meandering ponds, timber woodlots, regenerating native bush and river boundary.
Hidden Valley provides a diverse income from 3.65ca ha of Hayward variety kiwifruit, 1.2ha of avocado and an established blueberry farm.
The kiwifruit orchard, complete with improved structures, comprises 2.68ha of mature vines yielding 11,000 trays/ha plus an additional 0.79ha young vines for added future production. Improving export orchard gate returns and varietal opportunities provide options to further increase income. The avocado blocks, mainly Hass variety, are full of fruit, ready for the current season’s pick.
The blueberry development is in its fourth season of production. This is an impressive setup. Grown under 14 tunnel houses and utilizing innovative production methods, the berry cultivars feature top genetics that deliver the highest quality berry fruit.
There is timber to be milled from the woodlot with further areas that can be planted either for forestry or conservation. Opportunity exists to subdivide the property into two lots (subject to council approval). The Waipapa river boundary provides access to a stunning waterfall and swimming hole, ideal family fun.
The lifestyle possibilities here are many. Whether you use or extend the existing accommodation facility or build that dream home the views overlooking large ponds that display the reflective beauty from mature rhododendron, magnolia and maple will always enthrall as the seasons pass.
‘Hidden Valley’ truly is a fruitful place – where you too can grow!
