Lowcliffe has flat contour.  Soils range from peat to stony silt loams.  Lowcliffe includes 255 hectares of leased land.  The high water table makes good drainage essential, and a new three million litre above-ground effluent storage tank has been installed.  The majority of the farm is under pivot irrigation with the balance irrigated by travelling guns and sprinklers.
