A cracking property has changed hands after more than 25 years in the same ownership.
Sassafras Nuts is located in the Budawang Ranges, west of Nowra.
Earlier this year, the 22-hectare (54-acre) property and business was offered for sale.
Located at 4281 Braidwood Road, Sassafras, it sold for $1.95 million last month after 188 days on the market, according to CoreLogic.
It was sold to Bomaderry-based Salt Care, a not-for-profit, church-based organisation.
A Salt Care spokesperson said they planned to utilise it as a social enterprise business.
The farm was established in the early 1980s.
Sassafras Nuts is well known for its supply of chestnut and walnut varieties.
The farm has derived much of its business by supplying to Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra and the local market.
Nuts have also been wholesaled to Sydney and Brisbane.
The property and business had been owned and operated by Richard Moxham and wife Alison Saunders for 27 years.
Mr Moxham said the business had initially been a weekend activity for them.
"Because there was a considerable amount of demand for chestnuts and walnuts, particularly in the Illawarra area from clients in the Italian, Portuguese and Croatian communities, it became obvious there was a market to develop it a little better than we had been," he said.
"So we put more effort into it over the years. When I retired about ten years ago, I wasn't there full-time, but we did a lot more work in the past ten years.
"We redeveloped a lot of the trees, and we created the farm shop and had a much better interaction with our local customers that way."
Mr Moxham said they often brought visitors to the property for a "farm experience", which proved popular.
"We had good quality produce and the opportunity to access it farm fresh, on farm for you to pick it if you wanted it, or buy it from us already packed and graded.
"We also connected with a lot of different ethnic communities in Sydney, and they used to bring their buses down as well. Because the nuts were always in season around Easter time, that was a good time for people to visit."
The property contains a long road frontage and drive-in roadside shopfront.
A cottage was built in the 1980s which was designed for comfort but also features timber from the property, with light-filled living areas, generous-sized bedrooms and large open plan kitchen/dining/living.

The selling agents were Shane Hilaire and Sarah Tebbutt from Ray White Berry.
Mr Hilaire recently told the Mercury that the shopfront was an "iconic" place for locals and customers who dropped in regularly.
Mr Moxham said they were selling as they had planned to retire from farm life, but planned to travel and remain within the nut industry via their interest in tree science.
"We were fire-affected (at the property), but we fixed all those things and recovered," he said. "But we just thought it was the right time for us to move on."
