I am delighted to present for sale Whare Koa, Baxter's & Whisson's, 3 mixed dryland cropping and grazing properties, located just out of MECKERING within the renowned Avon Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.

Situated on the long term average annual rainfall 350-400mm line, these properties offer an excellent balance of productive land classes well suited to broad hectare cropping pursuits as well as livestock production. Farmed by the current owner's family for 32 years, Whare Koa (meaning Happy Home) adopts a two in five winter cereal cropping rotation system, designed to optimise biological regeneration of the land resources and maximise sustainable productivity. Under this system, approximately 1000 hectares is annually cropped to wheat, oats, lupins or rye, whist the balance is utilized for grazing 650 Merino breeding ewes plus lambs.

18 cropping paddocks, 2 mature & highly productive olive plantations comprising approximately 3000 trees and multiple forested areas, make up these picturesque valley farms with excellent fresh water from a permanent soak and an earth catchment dam.

Scheme water mains supply the house, sheds and extend into the property.

The property has 3 Carbon Sequestration Projects registered with the Clean Energy Regulator comprising approximately 1382 Ha. Carbon sampling testing to a depth of 1m.
