All farm machinery is included with the sale of the property including 2 John Deere tractors in excellent condition, an as new Mochiero macadamia harvester and well equipped workshop - a full inventory is available as required.
Average NIS production over the past 10 years has been 128 tonnes per annum. There is good potential for a new owner (should they choose) to increase production per tree and a working owner could enjoy a significantly higher return through savings on wages. The current owner is selling due to ill health and subsequently has a realistic price set for kindal plantation.
Prices at present are around $3.50/kg - $3.75/kg. Industry in general appears to be reasonably optimistic going forward. Easing Australian dollar and increasing demand from Asia is underpinning this confidence.
