It is often hard for a first-time farmer to find a plot of land suitable for them. 

Massive allotments or nearly untenable land are often what a new starter would have to overcome. However that is not the case with Lot 12 on Hog Bay Road.

This picturesque block of land presents a great opportunity for a small-scale farmer to get started. With the current rural commodity prices in a rarefied atmosphere, the offering of Section 12 gives potential first time farmers a chance to enter the market.

The majority of the 122 hectare lot is cleared and pastured and is readily navigable.

The block itself is located close to Kingscote, which is only eight kilometres away. This proximity to town means that it is possible for an owner to maintain the farming operations being carried out on the property while perhaps also working with part or full time employment elsewhere.

Not only is the lot functional, it is also quite the looker. Smaller shelter belts of native narrowleaf mallee add to the aesthetic appeal of the land.

The fact that this property is located on the main sealed Hog Bay Road, just up from the Kingscote race course, means that this smaller rural block ideally positioned.

All of the town’s facilities are less than a ten kilometres away while it take only five minutes to get to the airport. It is even only 30 minutes to the ferry.

There are few opportunities better than this for a farmer looking for a manageable plot of land in an excellent location.
