A New Era Begins
The sale of 'Tiela' is an opportunity for the new owners to create their own legacy, to reap the rewards which has given the current custodian with a widely recognised reputation for farming success built from a lifetime commitment to the broadacre farming sector.
'Tiela' is conveniently located within the Moree Plains LGA just 46km west of the town's CBD and 88km east of Collarenebri. The regional township of Moree is well known for its high level of agricultural performance and is well serviced by a range of educational, retail and professional services. The property is well appointed agronomically, positioned in relatively close proximity to grain receival sites, cotton gins and a regional air services.
'Tiela' offers approximately 2,220 hectares of productive dryland cultivation country featuring self mulching chocolate, grey and black basalt soil types. Under the current owner's 25 year tenure the cultivation country is suited to successfully growing either winter or summer crops and has a proven track record for producing a range of high yielding results. 'Tiela' has successfully produced wheat, barley, chickpeas, faba beans and dry land cotton. The balance of the property is utilised for grazing, which has historically run a beef production enterprise of approximately 160 breeding cows.
Water security is assured with access to both the Goonal Capped and Piped Bore Scheme and the Lower Gwydir (fresh) Groundwater Scheme. The artesian water is utilised to fill a series of 22,000 litre storage tanks located across the property where quick fill stations deliver efficiencies for spray rigs plus servicing a network of concrete stock troughs. The fresh water scheme secures the domestic supply with meters connected to both the main home and cottage. In addition an onsite bore is located adjacent to the cottage.
Domestic improvements include a three bedroom home which offers a recently renovated kitchen, walk-in pantry, sunroom, dedicated office area, enclosed verandahs and a stand-alone garage. The home is fitted with both split system and evaporative air conditioning units as well as a combustion wood heater. Located approximately 2km from the main home is a 2 bedroom cottage with mains power connected. Both residences and the machinery shed have solar panels installed to the roofs feeding power back to the grid.
The working infrastructure comprises a modern all steel hay shed, a combined workshop/machinery shed, 2 x 470t flat bottom silos, original stables with lockable chemical bay. Efficient access around the property for farm machinery and bulk haulage requirements is delivered via internal built up earth roads.
A functional set of steel and cable design cattle yards include an undercover crush, drafting pound, overhead sprinklers and a steel loading ramp. Attached to the cattle yards is a large holding yard fitted with trough water and an original grain feeding bunk. The internal fencing on 'Tiela' is predominantly a two barb plus single plain wire design in relatively good condition.
The cultivation country is currently planted with a mix of both wheat and barley which is soon to be harvested. The high yielding standing crops are testament to the production capabilities of 'Tiela' which are driven via the fertile self mulching soils and sound management practices.
