Netherhill Farm c1840's - 122 acres - 3 Titles - Ample Water

Having changed hands only four times since settlement, 'Netherhill Farm' boasts a long and productive history as an orchard, a dairy and then a 20 acre strawberry farm. Up until recently Netherhill Farm was being run as a fully certified 16 acre organic strawberry farm and 100 acres of grazing.
At its capacity 'Netherhill Farm' operated as a vertically integrated agribusiness where the strawberries were picked and packed on farm and people were once invited to either pick their own or buy direct from the packing shed. The packing shed remains an integral part of the current strawberry business incorporating a farm shop/café which has been a very successful outlet for strawberry seconds and value added products in the past.

'Netherhill Farm' has been a popular destination for bus tours and family daytrippers attracting many tourists to it's lush and award winning fern garden and has facilities including toilets to cater for large groups. There is seating capacity for 70 in the large all season entertainment area that was primarily used as an adjunct to the farm shop and for formal gatherings. Whilst these days this infrastructure remains in place, a portion of the property is currently being leased on an annual basis for the purpose of farming strawberries and excludes the grazing side of the business.

The original 1840's homestead currently runs as a self-contained bed and breakfast cottage under the main roof including two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and full wet area facilities. The remainder of the solid stone home operates as the primary abode and includes an entrance hall, separate recently renovated kitchen and pantry area, two living rooms, a study, two spacious bedrooms, bathroom, laundry and also a large storage room known as 'The Creamery' which is semi-detached at the rear.
'Netherhill Farm' consists of three separate titles. The main title encapsulates the primary infrastructure previously mentioned including a large dam and huge fern garden which was established many years ago. The unique and mature fern garden was designed to complement the property's multiple lawned areas strategically located to offer privacy for wedding ceremonies. The other two titles are currently utilised for grazing and intensive farming with one seven acre title known as 'The Strawberry Block' situated along Netherhill Rd directly opposite the property's dam and easily visible and accessed from the main road. The other title consisting of 79 acres is split into 9 paddocks and is situated at the back of the property operating primarily as a grazing block with amazing views across Kenton Valley and has a well established pasture program.

Water storage is abundant to the property with significant infrastructure servicing the entire property through tanks, troughs and several dams. Each of the 3 titles has its own bore and water license totaling 137.5ML. Power for the main bore is offset by a 10Kw solar system and the fencing has been recently upgraded across most of the property. A water map will be provided to the next owner along with a hand over meeting to ensure the current workings of the property are well understood by the next owner.
Extra property features include a quarry for road building material, good roads, an old diary, several large cool rooms, large shedding, workshop, hay shed, implement shed, bitumen drive and large car parking area. Each block has its own power meter. The homestead block has stockyards and an established fruit orchard. The organic status covers the paddocks in strawberries and includes a large rhubarb plot, and this property is strategically placed within easy reach of all primary markets.
Offered as a whole, 'Netherhill Farm' is currently an established and diverse agri-business located in one of the most fertile and highly regarded agricultural regions in South Australia. With a long agricultural history and genuine scope to position itself as a highly regarded brand, 'Netherhill Farm' would suit start up entrepreneurs, growth businesses or mature businesses looking to not only expand but wanting to take advantage of the untapped Northern Adelaide Hills and Southern Barossa Agri-tourism market.
