Upton Farms, one of the most dynamic agricultural and business farming operations in Australia is to be offered for sale at auction by Rural property specialists, Meares & Associates, Sydney on Wednesday, 13th April and closing 11 am Thursday, 14th April 2022.

A series of four nearby farms comprising 2,668 hectares (6,592 acres), located to the east of Walcha, and near the villages of Nowendoc and Niangala.

- Size and Scale: 2,668 ha (6,592 acres) magnificent red/chocolate soft basalt country, with 34 to 45 inch rainfall, approx. 1,250m ASL.

- Location: at 1,200 to 1,350m above sea level on the top of the Great Dividing Range allowing for both eastern and western climatic influences.

- Outstanding carrying capacity: fatten approx. 1 beast per acre with 300+kg weight gains per annum.

- Approx 100% sown to outstanding high performance Fescue and Rye based pasture mixes.

- Annually topdressed.


- Production target this year: fatten approx. 6,000+ EU accredited heavy steers on high performance pastures.

- Safe and reliable: permanent water - spring fed creeks and 180 creeks.

- Excellent location:
top of Great Dividing Range, - 50km Walcha, 57km Tamworth, 110km Armidale/Gloucester.

- Nearby Cattle sources: New England, North Coast NSW, and Queensland.

- Abattoirs: Tamworth, Dinmore, Casino, Inverell, Wagga.

- Feedlots: Caroona, Moree, Glen Innes.

- Fully renovated 3 to 5 BR homesteads.

- Near new cattle yards (BW access) on all farms


The 2,668 hectares comprise wall to wall, high performance pastures allowing for the outstanding carrying capacity the farms now have, enabling management to run and fatten approximately one beast per acre, putting on in excess of 300kg of weight per annum. This has allowed management to target a production turnoff of up to 6,000 heavy steers this year. In effect, given the abovementioned weight gains, this will mean the production of 1.8 million kg of beef off the Farms for the year.

With its all highly improved pastures and absolutely no waste country on any of the farms, ranging in size from 412 hectares to 956 hectares, they are all extremely well presented with outstanding pastures, excellent fencing and water reserves (spring fed creeks and spring catchment dams), 'state of the art' cattle operating improvements on each farm, and excellent housing, ranging from the architecturally designed five bedroom Alpha homestead to very comfortable 3 to 5 bedroom homesteads on the other 3 properties.

The portfolio will be offered for sale via Meares Simultaneous Online Auction, with the sale commencing 13th April and closing at 12 noon on 14th April 2022.

The properties will be offered:
- As a whole
