SPRING Creek, a highly productive farm in the heart of the fertile South Burnett is to be auctioned by Ray White Rural in Brisbane on August 11.
Located 265km from Brisbane, the aggregation consists of 370 hectares (916 acres) in five freehold titles, less than 3km from town.
Selected by the Campbell Family in 1912, Spring Creek is the original home of the Barambah Organics dairy company.
Due to the success of this company, the dairy herd has been relocated to larger holdings in the Goondiwindi district. After 105 years of family ownership, Spring Creek is offered for sale.
The aggregation consists of bottle-tree vine scrub and brigalow/belah country with blue gum flats with extremely good stands of Rhodes grass and green panic. There is paspalum on the former cultivation country and kikuyu on the flats.
Spring Creek is the original home of the Barambah Organics dairy company.
The highly productive, highly responsive soils are ideal for fattening as well as being suitable for growing pulses, leucaena and lucerne with more than half of the property previously being contoured and cultivated.
Spring Creek is named for the network of reliable spring-fed gullies which traverse the entire aggregation. The property has the added bonus of a town water connection, which supplies all paddocks through troughs and concrete cup and saucers. Other water sources include a bore equipped with solar pump and four dams.
The three bedroom homestead is set in established gardens. There is also a second three bedroom residence. Other infrastructure includes a hay shed, and a former dairy, described as suitable to convert to a vet facility.
Marketing agent Ian Newson said Spring Creek provided an opportunity to secure productive cattle country, with soils suited to growing pulses with the bonus of five titles on the edge of town.
