Depot and farm hits the market as business relocates

A transport depot and farm located in the rural town of Bulahdelah, in NSW’s Hunter/Mid North Coast region, has been put on the market.

Bulahdelah Haulage has been building and improving this property for the last 15 years but now plans to relocate. 

In that time, the company has been running between six and 10 trucks, depending on the work. The fleet has included a mixture of rigids, semis, truck and dogs, as well as a couple of B-doubles – including both tippers and moving floors. 

The company’s main transport operations are hauling bulk product such as wood chip, sawdust, chicken manure and gravel – and the farm property had served the business well.

Bulahdelah Haulage works closely with local sawmills to supply sawdust bedding to commercial chicken farms. 

Delivering woodchips to a power station for use in making green energy also keeps the company busy.  

To add, firewood is delivered locally and into the Sydney market. 

Bulahdelah Haulage is a diversified business, which also operates a quarry, supplying road base to the council and to local farms.

Farm roads are built using its own tippers, grader and roller.

Another part of its operations is cleaning out commercial chook sheds at the end of the laying or growing cycle and then delivering the manure to farmer’s paddocks to be used as fertiliser. This has provided many challenges during this very wet period. 

The home on the property is surprisingly private and can’t be seen from the highway, nor can any other houses be seen. It has a large tiled office area, three bedrooms, two renovated bathrooms and an enormous screened north-east facing verandah area that includes a swim-spa.

The home and office have their own ducted r/c air conditioning units. Security cameras allow the office to view the work/parking areas. The office could easily be given its own separate entry if preferred.

The property was originally purchased because of its easy access to the Pacific Highway.  The farm is also flat to undulating, comprising 11 paddocks, and three small paddocks, most with dams and coming into a central yard. 

Lots of manure, lime and seeding has been used to improve the pastures. A 2000 tree mixed wood plantation was established many years ago. There are another approximately 50 acres that is not yet fenced and improved, where disused crayfish dams are located.
