This existing 70 acre Hydroponic family business has been in operation for over 30 years and currently produces Eggplant and Mini-Cucumbers for established markets in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. It is being sold due to retiring family members.
The property is set up for year round production and currently employs approximately 12 staff. There is however opportunity to diversify the current production into other markets and further expansion into the 16 hectares of farm land for additional Greenhouse structures or field grown crops.
There are five working Greenhouses equalling 13,864 m2 of floor space along with a 15 x 12m packing shed, 20 pallet cold room, staff workroom and storage sheds. Plant and machinery are included in the sale and an inventory list is available on request.
The property benefits from it's close proximity to the Kolan River and has an allocation of 2 x 20 Mega Litre and an additional 76 Mega Litre water harvesting license. There are also 2 x 40 Mega Litre dams available to use.
In addition to the farming operation, there is domestic accommodation consisting of two dwellings; 1 x 3 bedroom and
1 x 2 bedroom properties. The town of Avondale has a primary school, tavern and mini supermarket located within a 5 km distance of the property, with the City of Bundaberg with it's own airport, only a 25 minute drive away and a bus service to a number of Secondary Schools.
Additional income is generated from an NBN tower located on the property which is currently let until 2035.
