Offered for sale for the first time since selection in 1952, this property has 65 years of continuous ownership by the Casserly family.
Farm 43 Casserly Road, Warrawidgee, was initially selected by Mr Casserly Snr in 1952.
He was instrumental in the purchase by the NSW government of this part of “Warrawidgee Station”, which was then subdivided into 10 holdings, expanding the MIA.
John and Jan Casserly took over the farm in 1980, John having worked the farm with his father since 1953.
Rice, winter cereals and fat lambs were the main activities carried out on the farm.
In the late 1980s John and Jan decided to lease the farm and move into Griffith, where they established the successful Griffith Health Foods business.
Farm 43 remained leased until June 30 this year.
Having consequently retired from business, John and Jan decided it was time to sell the farm.
The property comes with a comfortable four-bedroom house, 30kms from city of Griffith.
Farm 43 presents as an ideal opportunity to enter a irrigated farming venture or instigate a farm build up.
The property will be auctioned on Thursday, July 29 at 2pm at the Griffith Southside Leagues Club, along with 1293 megalitres of general security water entitlements, which will be sold in six separate lots.
