TAS Country : April 14th 2011
24 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 15, 2011 Opportunity with a cherry on top HERE is a golden oppor- tunity for a lifestyle change where the hard work has already been done. Four thousand cherry trees have been planted in a 4.8ha netted compound, on a 26ha block that has three titles. The orchard has a fully automated irrigation sys- tem that is supplied via an eight mega-litre dam. The farm has averaged 40 tons of cherries picked per year over the last three years and all of the trees are of a late picking var- iety, which means the bulk of the cherries are already off the market when these become ready to pick. There is also a three- bedroom home on the property. There is a high standard of infrastructure in place to make this opportunity work and the asking price is less than replacement cost. There are packing and future marketing options in place through the pres- ent owner and the farm is located 20 minutes from Hobart.
