New England farm sales secure $8.6 million

Sarah Pease from Sylvania Park, Enmore via Uralla was the buyer when David Nolan at Webster Nolan Real Estate and Bruce Rutherford at Boltons Landmark sold the Armidale offerings, Kingsford and Sun Valley at auction last week. 

The vendors Rob and Kelly Lamoureux are returning to Canada, with their children now overseas.

The marketing campaign resulted in over 90 enquiries and 36 inspections.

With a total of 11 registered bidders, Kingsford (above), was the first property offered then followed by Sun Valley.

The Kingsford bidding started at $2.5 million and after 42 bids was knocked down for $4.65 million.

The Sun Valley bidding started at $3 million and after 13 bids was knocked down for $4.025 million.

The Lamoureux's came to Australia 30 years ago, as a young married couple, from a farming and ranching background respectively. Kelly leaving a large family cattle ranch in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and Rob a diverse background in farming and mixed livestock. 

Their adventure was precipitated by the desire to find a kinder climate.

Coming from the long harsh winters of western Canada the lovely four seasons of the New England made life on the land much easier, David Nolan advised.

Rob and Kelly have run a very successful commercial herd of cross bred cows. In the last 3 years their steers have taken out the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion twice at both Beef Spectacular in NSW and Paddock to Plate at the Ekka in Queensland.
