Mixed Farming: Crops, Horses and Cattle
- WAMURAN QLD
This unique drought-proof property is located close to Caboolture, home of the impressive Queensland State Equestrian Centre. This mixed farming acreage is conveniently located less than one hour from Brisbane.
The home is a 3 bed, one bathroom brick build, with a full-length veranda. It is environmentally friendly with a substantial 5 kW solar system, solar hot water and rainwater tanks. The home has reverse cycle air-conditioning and presents very well.
Surrounding the home are a variety of fruit trees, including mango, fig, pawpaw, dragon fruit, orange, mulberry, star fruit and loquats. In the semi-commercial vegetable area are sweet potatoes, Japanese pumpkins and maize. Near the house is also a large chicken run.
1. The machinery and storage sheds near the house are extraordinary. Two sheds are 15m x 6m; and another shed is 9m x 6m. These have 3-phase power and are built on a concrete slab. The 10m x 6m garage adjoins the sheds. There are 2 cold rooms in the sheds. Near the main dam is a chemical shed and a small liveable shed that has power and gas connected. There is also a hay shed.
2. There are 5 paddocks, with good fencing for cattle and a set of yards with a loading ramp. There is also a very large paddock that could be suitable for horse facilities for agistment or used for crops once again.
3. There is an extensive irrigation system that covers the entire property. The main pump is a 3-phase pump from dam 1. The second dam is spring-fed. It has a fire fighter pump that is used to top up dam 1.
4. Improved pastures: Currently, the predominant grass is Rhodes grass. The soil being very rich, it can support 12 head of cattle in the back paddocks, using strip grazing. Good quality hay is cut from the 5-6 acre paddock.
Future Use of the Land
Due to the excellent soil type and irrigation system, the property could once again be a highly productive strawberry farm. Another option would be to develop a horticultural or market garden pursuit. This mixed farming acreage is perfect for the hobby farmer who wishes to raise sheep (Dorper) or goats, or have a horse and cattle agistment enterprise.
