ALCHERINGA is ideally located between Three Springs and Eneabba in the Mid West farming region.
It offers an opportunity for mixed farming or cropping only enterprises or to purchase a stand-alone property with abundant water and remanent vegetation providing plenty of shade and shelter.
The offering comprises two properties - Alcheringa (home block) of 3342 hectares and North Alcheringa of 1991ha.
The properties are available separately if necessary.
Both properties have excellent access from Three Springs-Eneabba Road and Kangaroo Road.
Lots 10904, 10906 Alcheringa and lot 10910 North Alcheringa are managed in a single 100 per cent cropping enterprise with stock removed two years ago on Alcheringa and about five years ago on North Alcheringa.

The 2019 harvest is complete with the current sequence available for inspection.
Deep ripping is now included in the paddock management, as well as the two tonnes per hectare lime application to 70-75pc of North Alcheringa and 40pc of Alcheringa over the previous five years.
Fertiliser applications and yield history are well documented and available for consideration, with actual production figures being available.
