Oparau Farm is currently run as a sheep and beef farming operation located at Oparau in the Waikato region.
The farm is excellently positioned for conversion to commercial forestry with both high rainfall and high temperatures resulting in excellent growth rates in the region.
The block is located 60km's South of Hamilton and 25km's inland of Kawhia. Oparau Farm expects to be able to register approximately 476ha of post 89 land in the Emissions Trading Scheme. The remaining area is predominantly pre 1990 natives. This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a suitable farm for forestry conversion and gain exposure to the carbon market.
While Oparau Farm has a gross area of 694ha with the majority of the area being in grassland, or grassland with light scrub, there are some smaller areas of pre 1990 natives and post 89 forest land with a forestry right to a third party.
