A Hawke’s Bay orchard with a unique variety mix including kiwifruit, apples and summer fruits is for sale in one of the region’s most productive areas.

Foothill Orchard at 445 Ngatarawa Road is superbly located right next to State Highway 50, only 12.5km from central Hastings.

The location offers excellent access to markets as well as the privacy and serenity of rural living.

Louise Wake of Colliers International is marketing the 21.56ha property for sale by tender closing at 2pm on Thursday 8 August.

“Foothill Orchard is available with vacant possession, making it ideal for both owner-occupiers or investors,” she says. The vendors will ensure the property is up to date in all aspects of its orchard management prior to settlement.

“This is a unique opportunity to increase and or diversify your current landholdings or a foray into a new venture.

“A three-bedroom house, set in a large section near the centre of the property, could either become your new home or a source of rental income.

“The property is in three titles of 9.57ha and two blocks of 6ha each. The location is prime, and the multiple titles only enhance the potential.”

Wake says the orchard offers a unique variety mix. It is fully irrigated, and two wind machines provide frost protection.

Plantings including 2.36ha of Zespri Gold kiwifruit under net, 5.58ha of apples, 8.77ha of mixed summer fruit including dessert peaches, nectarines, plums and Golden Queen peaches.

The section also includes 3.55ha of bare land. The soils, as demonstrated, lend themselves to a range of horticultural options.

Foothill Orchard is located in Roys Hill, near Hastings, in an area renowned for its horticulture.

The wider Hawke’s Bay region has a strong economy underpinned by the productivity of its primary sector, particularly horticulture and viticulture.
