The Frances Farm Portfolio comprises three farms - Frances, Minimay and Bool Lagoon - covering a total land area of 2,802 hectares near the South Australian and Victorian border.
The Frances property comprises 1,550 hectares and has been historically used for horticultural pursuits, fat lamb production and cropping (primarily cereals and oilseeds). The property comprises approximately 900 hectares developed to centre pivot irrigation, a 2,984 megalitre Groundwater Entitlement and extensively developed infrastructure and improvements.
Minimay covers 647 hectares, with 120 hectares developed to centre pivot irrigation. The property has been utilised primarily for cropping (cereals and oilseeds) and grazing and comprises a 400 megalitre Groundwater Entitlement and basic improvements.
Bool Lagoon comprises 605 hectares, with 260 hectares developed to centre pivot irrigation. The property has historically been utilised for horticultural pursuits, as well as cropping and fat lamb production. Further, the property also comprises a 1,389 megalitre Groundwater Entitlement and a set of cattle yards and sheep yards.
CBRE’s Duncan McCulloch and James Beer have been appointed to sell the portfolio in one line or as separate assets via an Expression of Interest campaign.
Mr McCulloch said: “We expect the Frances Farm Portfolio to generate strong interest from both locals and corporates looking to acquire quality agricultural land, given the current shortage of stock on the market.”
