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 don't 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 $250 per week with potential to increase this figure. A perfect home to continue renting as is or to utilise as a manager's residence on site.
The orchard is around 4 ha of the total size and is planted out with approximately 4000 trees, with varieties including Silvia, Regina, Sweet Georgia, Lappins & 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. Irrigation of the cherries is not a concern, there is an 8 mega litre dam on the property complete with 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. All machinery and equipment required to maintain the orchard remains with the property or the price is negotiable if the equipment is not required. Machinery and equipment include a tractor and attachments, ATV 4 wheel bike, slasher, sprayer, spreader, chipper, stick rake and all lug boxes. The balance of the land is pasture and light bush as you can see in the aerial views.
The outlook from this property is rural, and it is located on an arterial highway which is also perfect for door sales. Just 20 minutes to the Hobart CBD and 10 minutes either side of Kingston & Huonville, inspection is strictly by appointment and a hand out with the full history of the orchard and cherry tree varieties is available upon request.
