Prime Farming Country - Quality Seldom Found

The Meryon Aggregation is a quality offering of farming country that has been established from the original purchase in 1980 to subsequent additions up to 2021. The properties are offered as a whole or in the designated areas of Meryon – 4,533.9 acres, Clyde Cottage – 4,304.7 acres and The Ranch – 2,322.1 acres. If not sold as a whole each individual property will be contingent on the sale of the other two. Some of the country in the two most recent acquisitions of Wilsons and Clyde Cottage provide some country in the second year of cropping.

The improvements are excellent and include a comfortable, modern homestead, cottage and seasonal workers accommodation.
