World demand for protein is increasing, as to whether it's for livestock or human consumption, and the importance of access to water security is essential to any progressive agribusiness operation.

Ballandown Waters consists of 57 hectares (141 acres) and is as drought proof as they come.

It features multiple water sources, including its own 100mm Creek Pipeline Company outlet, two underground bores.

Lake water is supplied from a 12 inch mainline with 75hp electric pump and stainless-steel filtration system and an eight inch mainline with 40hp electric pump.

There has been a strong focus on improving the already productive Lake Plains fertile sandy loam soils, laser levelled, with an excellent fertiliser history applied annually.

Production of premium hay from strong stands of Aroura Lucerne have been in high demand, especially during recent dry seasons.

Ballandown Waters is not limited to lucerne and pasture production and could accommodate a variety of other crop types of your choosing.

A Lateral irrigator is in place with potential to add centre pivot irrigation.

All fences are in excellent condition.

A paddock of Kikuyu and Clover based pasture has been home to some entertaining polo games and utilised alongside the lucerne stands for fattening prime lambs.

Located near the famous Langhorne Creek wine growing district, Lake Plains is now recognised as an upcoming food growing area within 100km of Adelaide's fresh food markets.

Koroneiki Olive trees add another cashflow stream along the driveway to a neat, well maintained three bedroom home.

The sale of Ballandown Waters offers an excellent opportunity to access a highly productive irrigation property in good health and unmatched sources of water in a tightly held area.

To learn more about what Ballandown Waters has to offer, contact Warrick Thorpe on 0447 155 221.

Ballandown Waters will go to auction at 2pm on Thursday, August 8, at Langhorne Creek Football Club.
