The Wyoming property at Brimin only ten minutes along the Murray Valley Highway west of Rutherglen is a highly productive farm holding that has been owned by four generations of the Kelly family.
Vendor Paul Kelly with his wife Louise say they have decided to offer their property for sale as they want to explore other farming options.
Wyoming is a fertile holding of 245 hectares or 607 acres that is in two blocks each roughly the same size that both front the Murray Valley Highway.
The property is known as 61 Kelly’s Road Brimin that provides access to the homestead and associated farm infrastructure including practical farm shedding, a 22 by 14 metre steel framed machinery shed, a lock up workshop and shearing and hay sheds.
The modern red brick homestead set in an established garden, includes a large outdoor entertaining area and with a parent’s retreat provides comfortable family living with four bedrooms, a full range of services and conveniences.
The homestead block also has a fully equipped bore with stock and domestic rights with an electric jet pump at about 40 metres that provides the domestic supply as well as the stock watering network throughout what is called the house block on the western side of Kelly’s Road.
Owner Paul Kelly has operated a highly productive wheat and Canola rotation on the excellent blend of soils that are a mix of the traditional district red loams and clay sandy loams which provide the base for the Lucerne based pastures.
With regular fertilizer and lime applications the undulating land profile achieves a high level of productivity.
Alongside this he has operated a stock trading operation that benefits from having three major livestock saleyards -nearby Corowa, Barnawartha and Wangaratta all within easy reach.
Three regional meatworks are another feature.
There is ready access to a range of education facilities in Rutherglen with two daily school bus services that pass including one that goes to Wangaratta making this property and its location an ideal family living destination.
Other local sporting and recreational attractions include easy access to the resorts of towns like Yarrawonga, Mulwala and Bundalong nearby.
The Wyoming property offers a choice of future options including its proximity to the Rutherglen wine district.
The current spring break has been the best in years delivering plenty of rain to endow the soil profile and top up the water resources so there should be a strong production outlook for the next several seasons.
Ruralco Property Wangaratta selling agent Dave Colvin says that the Wyoming property at Brimin in the Rutherglen area is a serious offering.
“Held for almost a century under four generations of Kelly family ownership this is a rare offering in a tightly held farming district.
“The features of long highway frontage, the excellent infrastructure of adjacent towns like Rutherglen, Corowa just across the River Murray and Wangaratta to the south together with the well demonstrated productivity and flexibility make this sale by EOI a real opportunity.
“Local farm land values fall in the range of $2,500 to $3,000 per acre so I am anticipating a price offer for this property will be attractive for farmers scaling up and local district farmers wanting to increase their exposure with an additional prime district holding” Dave Colvin says.
