Farmed by the Morgan family for the past 43 years, 'Muskerry' has been thoughtfully developed, exceptionally managed and presents a rare opportunity to purchase prime cropping and grazing land in a sought after location.

Located just 7km east of Northampton on Harvey Road (soon to be sealed), 'Muskerry' is 189ha in total (155ha considered arable) and consists entirely of productive york gum and jam red loam soils. The gently undulating property has primarily supported a stud & commercial White Suffolk enterprise, with the cropping program being no more than 50% annually.

The property has all the necessary infrastructure to be a self-supporting farming unit.
- 3 stand shearing shed with 800 head steel yards.
- 15m x 8m general purpose machinery shed.
- 14m x 10m concrete floor workshop and utility shed.
- 50t rolling roof fertiliser shed.
- 12m x 4m hay shed.
- 2 x 120 bag, 2 x 216 bag & 1 x 24 bag silos.
- 3 bedroom / 1 bathroom air-conditioned home with solar HWS, rainwater tanks and an adjacent 2 car garage.

Extensive water infrastructure and reliable supply is a key feature of 'Muskerry'. A solar equipped bore feeds a small dam at the southern end of the property, while 3 windmills link to numerous tanks and 10 strategically placed troughs. A bore equipped with a jet pump provides peace of mind and additional supply if necessary. All water sources are of good quality and suitable for livestock, domestic and spraying purposes, with the bore depths ranging from 55 - 75ft.

The property is divided into 28 paddocks (15 main paddocks and 13 smaller holding paddocks). The 6 line ringlock fencing has been exceptionally well maintained, with 900m renewed in the past 12 months. A small length of original netting makes up the southern boundary. The tree lined creek is also fenced to provide a laneway, additional grazing and shelter for stock.

'Muskerry' has a history of superphosphate application, while in more recent years 80kg/ha MAP and 100 - 120kg/ha urea has been applied in the cropping phase. Additionally, up to 3t/ha limesand has been applied in the last 5 years to all cropping paddocks.

An inspection of 'Muskerry' will impress all mixed farmers, with its presentation being a testament to the owners' attention to detail and commitment to their business.
