The Peppers comprises 2300 acres of land for sale. In addition the adjoining property Wanawong is also for sale and the two properties have been run in conjunction for many years. The Peppers is situated on many titles and could easily be split now or at a later date.
Location: The Peppers is located 3km north of the village of Boree Creek. A sealed road dissects the property making for easy access and grain cartage.
The regional city of Wagga Wagga is an easy hour’s drive east, providing access to excellent professional, cultural, educational and medical facilities. Narrandera is approximately 30 minutes to the northwest of Boree Creek and Lockhart 25km to the south east.
Water & Rainfall: The 27 year average rainfall from 1983 to 2009 is 18inches or 450mm. Riverina Water is connected and supplies water for both the stock and domestic needs on two parcels with the balance of the holding watered by dams.
2300 acres is for sale, all of the land is adjoining.
There are two homes; both are in good condition, each situated on separate titles. The homes consist of a three bedroom brick home and the large weatherboard homestead.
Gentle undulating red loam soils. Native timber to The Peppers is murray pine & grey box. A conservative calculation identifies that the total land area is 95% arable. The non-arable areas include the improvements, tracks, airstrip and shade and shelter timber.
There is a large machinery shed and a raised floor barn.
Grain & Fodder Storage:
On the holding are two haysheds, three silos and a 250tonne bulk grain shed.

The Peppers has been managed as a part of a larger operation for 30 years under a share-farming / lease agreement with the neighbouring property and can be purchased on its own or consider putting Wanawong with it for a combined parcel of approximately 4535acres.
The ability to acquire an economically viable parcel of well managed land that is all adjoining is rare, this property area lends itself to continuous cropping with long runs suited to auto steer, controlled traffic farming systems.
If you are tired of looking at run down properties then come and have a look at The Peppers and Wanawong, they will impress.
