A rare opportunity to acquire a magnificently diverse farm and growing business only 8 km from the popular tourist town of Denmark.
The Denmark Heritage Cider Company produces a unique range of traditional and natural ciders and apple cider vinegar. The Farm grows 15 varieties of European cider varietals that deliver fully fermented full-flavored ciders. This style of cider is increasingly popular in Europe, with interest growing in the Eastern States where Fine Ciders are now finding their way onto wine cards.
For the Carbon Conscious entrepreneur, the farm practices a sustainable and regenerative system of agriculture that has been constructed over many years to deliver ongoing land improvements and provide natural carbon capture.
The farm features a farmhouse, a cellar door, storage sheds, and sea container storage. In addition, there is a workshop and two static caravans.
Outside of the business opportunity, the property enjoys magnificent views and offers beautiful and diverse environmental amenities.
9 hectares at the Southern Edge of the property comprises highland wetland to the West and mature Tingle / Karri / Jarrah / Marri / Sheoak woodland to the East. Part of the wetlands is identified by DBCA as a rare Peat Bog, with associated flora and fauna. A cleared area adjacent to Glenrowan Road has been identified as a potential future new homesite, with views overlooking a large sweet-water dam, which is home to long-neck turtles. (Or a potential site for chalets?)
Moving North through the farm, on the farm track, the views open up to offer a magnificent panoramic view across Scottsdale, with rolling green hills and tall trees. A large marron-filled soak with an island and linking bridge are located on the western edge.
Around the dwelling, there are 4 paddocks over 3 hectares. This fenced grazing is ideally suited to keeping small numbers of âhouseâ livestock. The main orchard irrigation soak is located in this area. (This soak can be topped up by a pipeline that links with the other two Southern dams).
Water supply to the dwelling is by two tanks with a combined storage of 135,000 liters. The cellar door, workshop, and static vans have a further 95,000 liters of storage. All tanks are always full by the end of winter. The cellar door and associated storage and car park are located in a separate building past the dwelling.
Moving further North enters the fenced Orchard where over 6000 heritage cider apple trees and over 400 mixed fruit trees cover some 10 hectares. The cider apple trees are planted and pruned in a traditional way, requiring minimal intervention and encouraging the production of a vibrant population of farmhouse yeasts and natural pest predators.
The mixed fruit tree acreage offers additional income via local fruit sales, plus the opportunity to produce a range of specialty fruit wines.
An avenue of large gum trees leads to the main storage areas for stock and farm machinery. A generator provides power to this area and there is a 90,000-litre rainwater storage tank for washdown and general use.
More orchards on North facing slopes of Karri Loam soils give way to 2 hectares of regrowth Karri / Sheoak at the Northern edge of the property. A small creek cuts through the property at the Northern Edge marking the terminus of the old Scottsdale logging railway. Limited structural timber can be taken from this area for on-site construction. A fire break at the northern edge is accessed by two creek crossings.
Around 4 hectares of additional grazing or cropping land is available.
