Cambridge 1285 Kaipaki Road


Situated on the edge of Cambridge the deferred large lot residential zone hints that this flat 11.4615 hectare (more or less) site may have a use beyond its current, highly productive Nashi Orchard. In the meantime, there's approximately five canopy hectares of conceivably New Zealand's most productive Nashi trees including Hosui, Kosui and Danbae varieties that produced more than 700 bins during the 2018/2019 season. The handful of Packham Pears complements the Nashi bringing the total bin production to 741. Crops have been consistently increasing over the last three seasons. Planted in orchard until recently, the remainder of the land is equally productive and has been put back into pasture. The property is serviced by a three bay implement shed for tractor and machinery storage and a two bay fruit bin shed. All fruit is graded, packed and stored at a nearby commercial packhouse which packs for the domestic and export markets. The Waikato has a temperate climate ideal conditions for Nashi Pears. A connection to the Pukerimu drinking water supply scheme is at the front gate. Year-round activities such as mowing and spraying are done by the owner and seasonal work including harvesting and pruning are done by others. The size of the orchard is perfect for an owner operator to run as is, with support during the peak season. Alternatively, the new owner could be totally hands-off and have the orchard fully managed or leased out. The flat contour and free draining soils of this 11 hectare property allows for a multitude of immediate uses however buyers with an eye to the future growth and development of Cambridge are encouraged to explore those opportunities. Our client will provide a full handover so that the next season's crop will be given the best opportunity. Available as a FHGC. Take over now and reap the benefit of the new season's crop.
