Herein lies the opportunity to own a beautifully presented property showing outstanding results.

On average New Zealanders are consuming in excess of 40kgs of chicken per person per annum. We are the seventh biggest consumer of chicken meat in the world per capita, with growth projected to rise by 5 - 6%. Barn raised chicken makes up a generous portion of that market. All really good news if you are part of the industry.

Our clients are proudly offering for sale one of the best examples of a barn raised farm that you are likely to encounter. Situated near Matamata on 57.49 hectares that incorporates a 23.4 hectare forestry block predominantly planted in 24 year old pines with the balance of the grazing land supporting 130 young-stock, and has previously grown some contract maize.

The 6 shed site totalling 11,136m² (floor area) is fully compliant and has a secure long term contract with Inghams Enterprises, one of Australasia's leading brands. This business will be sold as a going concern with all the necessary consents in place. The farm is professionally managed by experienced staff that would consider staying on.

The main dwelling is an attractive 2002 built, single level five bedroom family home complete with an in-ground pool. If you choose to employ a manager or staff there are two excellent additional homes, one built in 2009 and the other in 2015.

Every detail of this property has been thoughtfully taken care of. If your quest has been to find a blue chip turn key investment, the search is over!
