Police raided the rural property at Oallen, about 60km south east of Goulburn, at 11.45am yesterday, seizing 2006 cannabis plants.
Large amounts of fertiliser and equipment allegedly used to grow cannabis were also seized by officers.
Joshua Clarke of Mortdale has been arrested and charged with enhanced indoor cultivation for commercial purposes, cultivate prohibited plant (large commercial quantity) and organise/assist/conduct drug premises.
