Banyard Game Birds Pittsworth Qld

  • Owners are looking for an aspiring farmer
  • Owners are open to suggestions
  • Looking for a family/couple in taking this sort of business over.
  • Owners are willing to pass on what expertise they have but the aspiring farmer still need to prove themselves.

Farming Operation:

Closest Town: Pittsworth QLD 4356, Australia

Size: 8.0 Hectares

Farm Type: Other livestock

Annual Rainfall: 500mm +

Banyard farm is an intensive livestock (quail) farm. Producing fertile eggs, incubation of the eggs, growing out of quail, slaughter and packaging of a retail ready product. Additionally, there is free ranging production of Guinea Fowl, and Geese, for farm management and our own consumption.

Infrastructure:

  • Quail Breeder shed (steel)
  • Incubation Shed (steel)
  • Quail Grow-out Shed (steel)
  • Fully accredited and licensed abattoir (SafeFood Queensland) (rendered brick) Associated refrigeration
  • Accredited Food delivery vehicle (SafeFood Qld)
  • Recently completed 3 bedroom homestead. (steel and timber)
  • Large steel construction shed (Clive and Erika’s home for 4 years)
  • ‘Site shelter’ covered workshop/storage area over 6 shipping containers
  • Two equipped bores, and substantial rainwater collection and storage

Farm opportunity:

We are completely open to suggestions. Personally we are not ‘hung up’ on asset ownership. What we are looking for is to find a couple/family, interested in taking this sort of business over, passing on what expertise we have to enable them to make the most of the opportunity, and then transition the ownership of the business and asset base to them over an acceptable period of time (eg 20 years). We would like to retain the right to live on the farm and be involved (albeit on a reducing scale) in the day to day operations for as long as we would like and are able to. We recognise there are always unforeseen circumstances which inevitably happen, and today’s plans may not be relevant next year. A degree of flexibility and understanding will be required by both parties here. We believe it would be beneficial for ourselves and for the business to bring in fresh enthusiastic talent, to take the business to another level, and to enable us to ‘step back’ to some extent. We feel it would be beneficial to commence that process sooner rather than later.

Other transition option:

This is a small business that we feel has the potential to be grown significantly within the capacity of the resources available. There obviously will be a need to grow and diversify the business to fund the participation of another family (partner). We have identified several complementary business opportunities.

Accommodation provided:

We consider it essential that the aspiring farmer live on site.  Now, there is no accommodation here, but there are several possibilities. Clive is a builder and has just completed a house for us, utilising one of the old shed frames as the basis for the construction. Housing arrangements will be sorted out in conjunction with the aspiring farmers’ requirements. It would be the first project to be undertaken.
