"Only minutes from the nearest town of Port Arthur and down a cute winding road, is this cross flow Free Range farm, consisting of four clear span sheds with the capacity of 120,000 birds (at .5 density) Absolutely immaculate, this  76 acre farm is contracted to Inghams, and is fully computerized, with auto winching, two generators and all the modern equipment including solar panels on the shed roof . It also has the wonderful area built between the two sheds that serve as a large plant room or amentias area.

The lay out of the farm is excellent ,with two entrances for the sheds with large driveways and huge concrete shed aprons.  The lush paddocks make it ideal for cattle production as well as having a small pine plantation 

The housing is exceptional on this farm. The main house is a lovely sandstone home entered though automatic gates onto a large aggregate driveway and parking area. Just here as well is the four bay steel farm shed with one area enclosed as a workshop.

As well there are two self contained cottages. Use your imagination for their possible uses"
