This productive 450 hectare (1,111 acre) farm enterprise at Shelford, on Victoria’s western plains boasts over a kilometre of absolute Leigh River frontage and includes 75 ha’s of highly regarded native grassland offsets, with all future income generation included with purchase.

The enterprise is well suited to all grazing pursuits and could also accommodate cereal and oilseed production. Subdivided into more than 20 paddocks, the property includes an array of native shelterbelts, with water for livestock provided by four dams, plus troughs which are fed from a solar pump on the Leigh River; there are also two unused bores. An internal laneway system assists with livestock management, while fencing is predominantly new, with a small section of original station fencing.

The soil types range from a mix of grey loam and heavier clay, with approximately 70% of the ‘home block’ being arable and the balance consisting of some basalt stone country with some heavier barriers, best suited to grazing. The ‘river block’ is 45% arable, with no structural improvements and of similar soil type, but include some sandy loam country along the river.

Approximately 40% the river block is home to highly regarded native vegetation offsets and managed by grazing practices. The vendor’s have taken great care during their custodianship to preserve much of the critically endangered native grasslands on the property. Their ongoing management, weed control and seasonal grazing practices now benefit the enterprise with additional income derived from working with the natural environment.

For genuine sale, the property is zoned Farming Zone, in the Golden Plains Shire and just 40 minutes from Geelong and Ballarat and 100 minutes from Melbourne.
