About this listing
This 4 bedroom house and hydroponic farm which has been in continuous operation by the current owners for 25 years is now for sale as a going concern. The 2.02ha rural residential property is perfectly located just minutes from Nambour and the growing historic town of Yandina and 25 mins from Coolum Beach.
The home is a north facing 2 storey cavity brick home with 4 built-in bedrooms (main with ensuite) and 2 bathrooms. A huge ground floor rumpus room, generous entry foyer/office, 2 car garage, protected grassy courtyard, open fireplace, potbelly stove and 5kw solar power are features of the house. Main bedroom and lounge have air conditioning. 2 x 22500L poly rainwater tanks with appropriate water filters service the house water needs. The property has 2 dams, one of which supplies water to the growing area and seedling shed after treatment.

Due to illness, the business sales were reduced 12 months ago. The owners want to retire and downsize and are selling at a price based on recent sales which averaged over $1000 per week last year (from 14 of the 103 hydroponic tables). The plant and equipment to upscale again are included in the sale.
Currently the farm sells salad green and herb bunches in 4cm diameter plastic growing pots so minimal post-harvest processing is required (watercress, American upland cress, chervil, rocket and mint). No specialised skills are required to run the operation.
Other infrastructure on the property includes a 3 bay besser block shed at the rear of the house, 8kVa backup generator for the growing area, flocculation and holding tanks, and slow sand filter tank.

Because this property has the front end infrastructure sorted out for supplying clean water for growing plants, it's very well suited for permaculture. The potential is there for income producing, whether it be to the current business plan or other alternatives you may have in mind (eg nursery, microherbs, passionfruit, strawberries).
