Lifestyle opportunity – Truffle farm 1334 Nicholls Rivulet Road, NICHOLLS RIVULET TAS 7112
This is a special property in a special location and is only a few minutes drive from the vibrant township of Cygnet; well known for its cafes, restaurants, services and happy community.
Comprising some five hectares / twelve + acres, the current owners searched for a number of years for the ideal location upon which to establish a Truffle farm which is now in early stage production. As a result, the property comprises the following:
900 Oak trees inoculated with Perigord Black Truffles
200 Poplar trees inoculated with Italian White Truffles
100 sweet Chestnut trees
100 walnut trees
50 Waratahs of various varieties
The property itself is fortunate enough to be connected to town water, has a spring fed dam and borders Nicholls Rivulet itself; plenty of water supply for the current use, keeping of animals or other growing ventures. The Truffery has an underground, automated irrigation system which is remotely operated (NBN) via its own private weather station.
Also located on the property is a rustic, character one bedroom home (not council approved) which used to operate as a pickers hut in its earlier years. A large barn style machinery shed borders the main entrance and a further machinery shed is also a bonus.
This an ideal property from which to found some form of business venture given its close proximity to Cygnet as well as being on a popular tourist route with regular passing trade.
Of course there is also plenty of space to build a substantial home and for those still working, Hobart City is a thirty minute drive away.
The property is being sold on a “walk in, walk out” basis complete with a large range of tools and equipment. A Kubota tractor / front end loader with various implements plus a Kubota zero turn mower can also be purchased. Even included is the resident flock of Geese which are ideal for pest and grass reduction.
Further information relating to the Truffery and history of the property is available and the current owners are happy to provide training plus ongoing advice if required. Please note that there is no business being offered as part of the sale.
