Rural Real Estate: Rising demand for kiwifruit operations

Rural Exchange 16/12/2017

With kiwifruit orchard prices going for over $1million per hectare, it’s no wonder that the kiwifruit industry is a great place to settle.

Bayleys' Snow Williams joins Rural Exchange to discuss the demand for kiwifruit operations in Bay of Plenty.  

He explains that one perk of the kiwifruit industry is that with just 1-2 hectares “you can make a reasonable living.”

“The demand has always been high…” he says. “My biggest problem is to get enough listings to sell, to be honest.”

Kiwifruit operations have helped the Bay of Plenty GDP grow considerable in recent year - by a whopping 7 percent.
