Established Cherry Orchard

The Huon Valley is well known for our fabulous climate and rich soils that is suited to viticulture or permaculture production. Taking a scenic drive along any of our tourist routes and you will see the many vine yards, apple orchards, wineries, and dont forget our beautiful cherry orchards producing the finest quality of produce which we now export overseas proving that our little pocket of paradise is an agricultural paradise.   
I have a rare land holding just 20 minutes from the Hobart CBD which may be of interest to you if you are entertaining the idea of owning your own cherry orchard. Consisting of 3 separate titles, this 26 ha (65.7 acres) property has a lot to offer in the way of income opportunity and becoming your own boss or simply adding to your cherry orchard portfolio if you are already producing.
Situated on 1 title is a cosy, neatly presented 3 bedroom cottage with a two bay carport and garden sheds, currently leased at $280 per week with potential to increase this figure in time. A perfect home to continue renting as is or to utilise as a managers residence on site.
The orchard is around 4 ha of the total size and is fully established, planted out with approximately 4000 trees, with varieties including Silvia, Regina, Sweet Georgia, Lappins and Simones. Cordia pollinators have also been planted. Expense has not been spared in the protection from the elements, with the installation of a Veon weatherproof system, and roof and side netting secured with heavy duty posts and cables. There is an ultra sonic eagle/ bird fence and a full electric fencing system as well. Irrigation of the cherries is not a concern, there is an 8 mega litre dam on the property complete with a pump house and a resident platypus and all 3 titles join Turn Creek at the base of the titles. There is also ample tank water on site as well.
Given the elevation of the property being 300 metres, harvest is delayed, meaning higher demand market for the fruit. This is also the ideal harvest time to incorporate the Chinese New Year which is around the 20th Of January. Outbuildings for the orchard include a 3 bay machinery shed, implement shed, and pump house. The following machinery and equipment required to maintain the orchard is included in the price including and ATV 4 wheel bike, slasher, spreader, chipper, stick rake and all lug boxes. The tractor & sprayer can be negotiated on separately if required. The balance of the land is pasture and light bush as you can see in the aerial views, and there is availability to increase the size of the orchard if required.
The outlook from this property is rural, the zoning is rural resource and it is located on an arterial highway which is also perfect for door sales.
The cost of establishing an orchard of any type from the start is extreme, take advantage of this orchard, that is complete, and will be producing cherries which are a well sought after fruit with potential export locally and internationally, creating a fabulous income.
Just 20 minutes to the Hobart CBD and 10 minutes either side of Kingston & Huonville, inspection is strictly by appointment and a brochure and further information with the full history of the orchard and cherry tree varieties is available upon request.
