4352 Sutton-Clarks Highway is testament that quality stock come from a quality property.
This property has a reputation of being an early growing property and with recent development such as fencing and regrassing, the opportunity is available for a purchaser to continue with very good production.
Previous vendors ran a very good sheep breeding and finishing unit with a large percentage of their lambs finished prior to Christmas. Our current vendors are utilising the property as a cattle breeding unit and this is being carried out to a high standard.
The flat and rolling contour, along with the irrigation make it a great first farm opportunity, or an ideal run-off or addition to an existing unit.
While improvements are older in age they are generally in a sound condition.
This property is located in a very popular farming district.
