Ray White Rural announces epic Super Farm Sale Friday synchronised event

By Lyndsey Douglas

Ray White Rural has today announced an event for farm sales as more favourable seasonal conditions arise in the eastern states agriculture sectors and vendors are again bringing properties to market.

The company has launched a synchronised property sales event with tenders closing and auction campaigns completing on 9 rural properties totalling over $25 million in Sydney and Brisbane on Friday 7 June, 2019, starting at 10am.

The event is called Super Farm Sale Friday and features a feedlot, thoroughbred stud, a sprawling country estate, small and large grazing properties as well as cropping land.

In Sydney, three Mid North Coast cattle properties will be auctioned and two expressions of interest campaigns on large Central West enterprises will culminate.

These properties include a sizeable beef production aggregation on the NSW Mid North Coast, a smaller grazing farm in Gloucester and a property in Wingham that is being sold for the first time since 1880. As well as a 5000-head feedlot and a 3900 hectare mixed farming property.

On over 1600 acres, with excellent working infrastructure including cattle yards, and two homesteads overlooking the Manning River, ‘Norwood Aggregation’ is being marketed by Rob Chapman of Ray White Manning Valley and Andrew Starr of Ray White Rural NSW. ‘Carma Hills’ at Gloucester is being marketed by Ken Maslen and Adam Homewood as 334 acres of quality grazing country backgrounding 100 steers with a large homestead and creek frontage. Meanwhile, the 970 acre beef production property  ‘Ferndale‘, Wingham is being marketed for sale for the first time since the original settlement in 1880.

In the Central West, the ‘turn key’ Mirambee Feedlot 12 kilometres from Dubbo – which is the largest regional selling centre in the state – will take final expressions of interest. Mirambee is currently feeding 4000 cattle but can accommodate up to 5000 and the equivalent in weight for sheep. It’s being marketed by Brian McAneney of Ray White Rural Dubbo alongside Bruce Birch and Andrew Starr of Ray White Rural NSW.

Also concluding that week is a mixed farm widely regarded as the flagship property in the Bland area. Warrakimbo at Caragabal is on nearly 4000 hectares and is being offered for the first time since 1921 by Ben Redfern and Josh Keefe of Ray White Emms Mooney.

As far as lifestyle properties go, a private country estate on 249 acres, north west of Byron Bay is being auctioned by Stewart Baericke and Brad Franks takes the cake. The main draw cards include an architecturally designed homestead, managers residence, conference centre, spring water bottling operation, rich grazing pastures, mango and cabinet timber plantations, beautifully manicured grounds and numerous waterways.

In Queensland, Rob and Steph Clark are auctioning their developed 13,577 hectare Charleville property incorporating 7.5km of Langlo River frontage country, ‘Combanning’ with Bruce Douglas and  Mark Minnis. An iconic Darling Downs thoroughbred stud, on 1000 acres, that has been with the one family since 1910 will go to auction with Matt Cleary of Ray White Pittsworth. And, a smaller South Burnett grazing property on 507 acres near Murgon has improved pastures, 8 dams and 16 paddocks, will also go under the hammer through Jez McNamara.
