Presenting an exciting opportunity for a young at heart couple or enthusiastic, inspired entrepreneurs to reap the rewards of owning their very own cherry orchard. With huge business potential and endless opportunities for exploring the outdoors, this property offers the full Kiwi lifestyle package!
Located in Earnscleugh, in the heart of stunning Central Otago between Clyde and Alexandra, the property sits on 5.6 hectares of flat, fertile land and includes a substantial water dam, an overhead water system, under-tree irrigation system, a domestic bore and various sheds and pumps. The property is planted out with approximately 3.8 hectares of mature cherry trees comprised of 2200 sweet cherry trees, 500 tart cherries, 100 truffle trees and about half a dozen olive trees that provide a year's supply of private-use olive oil.
A converted shed has been transformed into a stylish, spacious one bedroom home featuring double glazed windows, large open living spaces including a mezzanine floor, modern kitchen and large bathroom adjoined to a two and a half bay open shed. Immerse yourself in the panoramic scenery viewed from living and dining areas, while the wood fire provides cozy comfort during the snowy months.
The orchard operation has many income and lifestyle options. The Vendor is actively involved in the running of the property though contractors are currently brought in for picking and packing. Two web domains are available. The farm is set up for export with Global GAP certification. The orchard also uses tart cherries and plums to make Cherrycello and Plumcello liqueurs as a side trade. For personal reasons, the liqueur business has been wound back when it was just gathering momentum, but it is all there ready to accelerate with a list of Cherrycello fans. This is a quality product which speaks for itself and could also be marketed for export.
The area has a thriving winery and restaurant scene and would be a wonderful spot to relocate to with the vendor happy to help the new owners get established. The property market in Central Otago is flourishing and demand for orchards and land in the region continues to rise. Call Debbie now on 021 406 967 for an Information Memorandum on the property.
