There has been a surge in the number of cropping farms and orchards up for sale, according to the Real Estate Institute.
Fewer farms sold in the July quarter compared to last year but median were higher, Real Estate Institute of New Zealand show.
New figures show farm sales fell 10 percent in the first quarter of this year, with the price of dairy and other grazing land lower than it was a year ago.
Grazing properties make up the largest number of farm sales in the three months to September, accounting for 45 percent of all farm sales.
Farm sales are continuing to fall but there is no sign of a surge of dairy farms hitting the market, the latest rural property figures show.
