A VERY fertile coastal outback farm in Goomboorian, northwest of Gympie, sold at Ray White Rural auction for $1.995 million.
Located on Tin Can Bay Road, Ancaridge has been certified organic for 13 years and managed using biodynamic farming methods for 15 years.
All four registered bidders were active in the auction of the 51-hectare (126-acre) freehold property.
The country consists of nitrogen rich volcanic soil over rolling cultivated fields that rise uphill with native vegetation in the rear south corner of the property.
The 20 ha of certified organic farmland was mainly used for the production of high quality beans.
Rhodes grass and green panic also diversify income, in line with the rotational farming plan. Additional land could also be developed.
The property has a 5 ha irrigation allowance from Ross Creek. There is also a large freshwater irrigation dam supplying several fire hydrants, as well as a smaller stock and household dam. Rainwater is also collected in the sheds and the farm.
Ancaridge is divided into three main paddocks, separating pasture and farmland.
The farm is well served by a large workshop/machine shed, packing/storage shed, loading ramp, cold room and tractor/vehicle shed.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom, low-rise brick farmhouse also features a swimming pool and spa.
Staff accommodation includes a gite, two caravans, utility room and kitchen, and covered barbecue/living area.
