By Laura Tacey

RARE opportunity for instant income situated in the serene slopes of Tumbarumba, ‘Jolly Berries’  heads to auction next month with Ray White Rural Tumbarumba’s leading rural agent Mellisa Melli. 

The 40.47 hectare highly productive blueberry farm is  6km from Tumbarumba, 103km from Wagga Wagga and 255km from Canberra. 

Current owners Molly and James Crozier fell in love with the property as soon as they saw it. Mr. Crozier said that over the years a lot of love, sweat and tears has gone into the business to make it what it is today. 

“Molly and James Crozier have been the owners for the past 10 years building it up from a conservative patch to the class 1 fruit producing business. It is a real credit to their hard work and level of infrastructure they will hand over to the new owners,” Ms Melli said.

Location is everything and we are in a fortunate area that receives consistent rainfall with our paddocks and crops reflecting just that.”

“The berry patch has consistently increased its yield in both fruit and profitability so for an investor looking to grow their portfolio it would be a hard opportunity to look past.” Mellisa Melli said. 

‘Jolly Berries’ upholds a strong reputation with class one fruit and a total of 45,000 bushes planted over 20 hectares with room for expansion. The business has proven strong returns within an established market.

Variety of blueberries include Northern Highbush and Rabbiteye as well as mid and late season varieties plus an established nursery.
