Extra Income Opportunity with Minimum EffortProperty ID 996317Situated right beside Home Hill township this affordable 400 tree mango orchard is unique and capable of a return of up to $50,000 per year with minimum upkeep. The trees have recently been mechanically trimmed, pruned and fertilized and only need irrigating until harvest time in November / December this year.
Its 10.5 acres has approximately 400 healthy mango trees made up of 330 Kensington Pride and about 70 R2E2. All trees are fitted with under tree sprinklers supplying 50 litres per hour to each tree.
The 2017 crop produced one of the biggest harvests of recent years with quality among the best in the industry. The Orchard has an irrigation system with water supplied from a 2" submersible pumping 9000 litres per hour from a 6" bore. Water is excellent quality from the Burdekin Aquifer and classed as suitable product for establishing a water processing plant in the area.
The property also comes with an older style three bedroom high set home which has recently been partly repainted. An old tobacco barn from days gone by still stands nearby and doubles as a store room. The property has also been known to be flood free.
A 30' x 30' steel framed machinery and packing shed with concrete floor is only a few years old. The package comes with some machinery including a blower mister, fruit grading equipment including dip and creep feed and tank.
The vendor is also willing to negotiate on other machinery including a tractor and slasher if the buyer is interested.
This is the opportunity to invest in a small business to generate that extra income source that can be easily managed on a part time basis with peak work period only lasting a few weeks at harvest time.
