Macadamia & timber farm

Drysdale farm situated in the scenic Barberton valley, south west of Nelspruit and surrounded by forestry with macadamia farms scattered between timber plantations. It is selling as a going concern with equipment included. The farm is planted to fifty hectares of macadamias and forty-seven hectares of gum trees with a water reduction permit for forty- five hectares. An additional two hectares have been ridged for macadamias but not planted, as the trees were sub-standard and therefor removed. Macadamia varieties are Beaumont, 816 and A4 with ages varying from four to seven years old. The average annual rainfall is approximately one thousand millimetres plus. Water supply is from a perennial spring piped into a dam. The spring is a tributary of the Noord Kaap River and the allocation for irrigation is 151 800 cubic metres per annum. Orchards are irrigated with micro jet and drip systems. Twelve hectares is yet to be equipped. Enjoy a tranquil lifestyle from an income generating farm!
