The Farm

About

We have a lease opportunity that has been available for a while near Bicheno on the east coast of Tasmania. On the doorstep of world renowned Freycinet National Park. I had the opportunity to visit the 137 acre property the other day while down in Tasmania and met up with the owner. The owners are great and have really setup a green field property that is right for a top gun farmer. We kicked around ideas why we haven’t been able to find a farm entrepreneur to jump onto this farm and then we thought we should think bigger. So we are now going to approach a few larger farming operations to see if they would be up for incubating the farm as an extension of their current operations and back a top-gun farmer. The property has so much potential. So keep a watch out. Do get in touch if of interest
