The properties that are currently on the open market are the 1483ha Copper Road sheep and beef farm in Otago, and Caroline Terrace on the West Coast, which has 120ha of grazing land on a 470ha property. Peter Newbold, General Manager of PGG Wrightson Real Estate, expected there to be some indication on the outcome of the iwi consultation process by Christmas. "One of the nice things about the Landcorp properties is that they"re really good custodians of the land so they"re really well looked after so if things aren"t right they"re fixed, and they"re well managed. There had not been interest from offshore buyers at this stage," Peter Newbold said.
