Bank Holiday Daydreaming

I find the best way to cope with a three-day weekend coming to a close is to start daydreaming about an alternative life. A few days ago I heard the price of nuts is on the rise which got me thinking of owning a nut farm. It’s amazing how one bit of information can lead you in a particular direction. So today over my morning cup of tea I did a search for nut farms for sale in Australia. Here is what I found –

A 25 acre macadamia farm and residence for sale. Located in Valla NSW Australia within a few minutes drive to the beach! And also not that far from my mum and brother who moved to Bellingen a few years ago. The house is a large, spacious four bedroom residence with a macadamia plantation.

Anyone what to invest in my nut farm?

Here is some blurb from the site –

Spacious split level mud brick and timber residence. The house and garden area is 2 acres and is situated on the edge of a rainforest area of 8 acres. Bird life is prolific and flora and fauna abundant.

The Lounge room is light and airy with a stained glass feature window and a large distinctive and very efficient fireplace.
Open plan living with slate flooring throughout the lower rooms with exposed beams and cathedral ceilings.
Large practical kitchen with extensive stainless steel bench tops, and a commercial Blanco stainless steel gas oven with 5 burners. Adjoining is a deep walk in pantry and an auxiliary room which comfortably accommodates full height double refrigerator/freezer combination, plus cupboards and shelving.

The formal dining room with feature stained glass door leads onto the verandah and garden area.
The extensive Family Room is divided from the kitchen by a large breakfast bar and has double French doors opening onto a verandah, the garden and the rainforest area.

The upper levels of the home are carpeted throughout with 4 – 5 spacious bedrooms. Main bedroom has an ensuite and walk in robe with French doors leading to garden.

The plantation comprises of 1100 macadamia trees of several varieties. All trees are mature and giving good crop yields. This commercial macadamia plantation has great potential for further development and represents excellent value at the price listed .
Shed with full macadamia nut processing gear.

    Wow, fab pictures. Never thought of nut farming – at least the nuts wouldn’t dirty upon one like cows do!!!

      Well after a few hours of daydreaming of owning a farm in this area I remembered all the creatures that also live in the area. My mum had a python set up residence at her place after eating my niece’s two cute pet bunnies. Eek!

  2. Having spent lots of time in South Africa and Canada as I have family in both places I never thought I’d add another place onto my list of possible places to live but I might just have to change my mind having seen this.
