Rare Large Scale Holding In Premier Farming District
Located 21km south of Young (the cherry capital of Australia), 19 km north of Wallendbeen, 130 lineal km from Canberra and 290 lineal km west of Sydney, Warranoy sits in the heart of some of the most reliable mixed farming country in Australia. The 1,646.48ha (4,076.8 acre) property has been run as a grazing and broad acre farming operation with an emphasis on dual purpose cropping ensuring consistently high stocking rates all year round. The combination of 724mm annual average rainfall, underground water, and a relatively cool climate makes ‘Warranoy’ potentially suited to cherry production or other intensive cropping endeavors.
‘Warranoy’ is subdivided into 41 paddocks with a main laneway system running through the middle of the property servicing most paddocks. This allows for the easy movement of stock across the property to sheep and cattle yards located at either end of the farm. Fencing is of a very high standard with many gate ways having been recently replaced. The smaller paddocks allow for high density grazing which is often needed to cope with the high amount of feed. Over the years the vendor has consistently run 13-5 to 15DSE/ha
Soils vary across the property and consist of red basalt, red loam, and red granite based soils. The property is approximately 85% arable with the 15% non arable suited to all forms of grazing.
Water is a feature of the property with an excellent supply of underground water suitable for stock,& domestic use as well as drip irrigation for orchards. There are four usable bore holes, one equipped with an electric pump and one with a windmill. (not currently being used). The electric motor equipped bore pumps water to a concrete tank situated on ‘the trig’ which then reticulates water to troughs across the western end of the property. A pump at a dam services troughs and the garden at the eastern end of the property,
There are four dwellings on ‘Warranoy’. A large five bedroom rendered homestead with a recently renovated kitchen is where the present owners reside. A second three bedroom brick house would make an excellent manager’s residence. A three bedroom fibro cottage is currently been rented and would suit a farm worker. The shearers quarters can hold up to twelve shearers and is fully equipped with a kitchen and bathroom.
