For the first time since its settlement, the Collins family’s Oakhurst at Bega is being offered for sale.

The 388-hecatre (960 acre) property has been in the family for around 150 years.

The property is priced at $1.4 million through LJ Hooker Bega agent Gerry Tarlinton.

Oakhurst was chosen by John Collins in the 1870s, originally 740 acres, but The Land reported the purchase of “the front paddock” in 1939 took the farm to its current size.

The family ran the farm as a dairy farm until 1964 but in recent years the focus of the family’s operation has been on finishing prime cattle for the Bega and Cooma markets.

The land has the capacity to carry 250 head of breeders.
