Located in Springlands, on the north side of Blenheim in a desirable area recently rezoned Residential, this one hectare property boasts an impressive family business based around the only glasshouse growing strawberries hydroponically in New Zealand.
Around 30 tonnes of strawberries are harvested from the one acre glasshouse and quarter acre poly house over a five month period, September to January. Around 50 percent of the crop is sold wholesale to restaurants and supermarkets with the balance sold direct to public, a large percentage onsite in the form of real fruit ice cream.
The plant is computer automated, controlling the growing environment with vents, shades and water misting. The pack-house building features a kitchen, bathroom, wash-down, chillers and a shop with an attractive outside area ideal for sitting in the sun eating ice cream.
The three bedroom home provides the opportunity to live onsite, manager's accommodation or the ability to earn additional income through rental. This is a lucrative lifestyle business, handy to town, schools and services, with high potential for future capital gain through residential subdivision.
Being sold as a Freehold Going Concern but may also consider selling the business alone.
Deadline Sale 4:00pm, Tuesday 18 August 2020 (unless sold prior)
