Part of the Mountain Blue blueberry enterprise near Tabulam is for sale.

Crystal Park at 991 Tabulam Road, Jacksons Flat is for sale without a set price tag but a callout for expressions of interest.

The land for sale is 180 hectares with a 27ha established blueberry orchard, most of it under netting.

There is also a modern cold store packing facility, a dry goods packing shed, on-farm accommodation for 180 people and a manager’s residence.

Mountain Blue owner Andrew Bell said the company was selling the site because it was surplus to requirements given the fruit was packed in Lismore now.

“We are planning to continue expanding on the other side of the river including planting raspberries and blackberries later this year,” Mr Bell said.

First National agent Kel Gunther, based in Casino, said the property was likely to get interest from outside the area.

The site has everything for a horticulture venture– irrigation infrastructure, two large storage dams, pumping infrastructure on the Clarence River and two water licenses totalling 214 megalitres.

There is also a 23,000 litre rainwater tank and bore at the house.

The selling blurb said the extensive infrastructure in place on the property meant the existing enterprise could be put to an alternative use.

Mountain Blue has other sites at Tabulam, Lindendale near Lismore and in Atherton in Northern Queensland, according to its website.

Mountain Blue is known for creating the Eureka strain of blueberry that is big and juicy. Eureka blueberries are sold at Coles supermarkets.
