Quartz Range

Quartz Range is in the Bainham district of western Golden Bay and was the first farm purchased in the Lone Star Farms group. It looks north down the Aorere Valley to Golden Bay, and south to the mountains of Kahurangi National Park.

It is a high-rainfall property on Pakihi (podzol) soils bounded by Salisbury Creek and Basin Creek, and bisected by Finney’s Creek. 225 effective hectares of neighbouring land was leased in 2020, which ranges from similar land to highly productive river flats.
