About Ceres Circle Farm
Ceres Circle Farm is a 36.8 acre sheep farm in Kelowna, British Columbia. It is a very beautiful farm that has been meticulously maintained. There are gentle rolling hills that are fenced into paddocks on both sides, as well as a natural uncultivated area full of edible and medicinal plants.
About The Opportunity
A sheep farming operation would be the ideal “flagship” enterprise as the property can accommodate maximum 35-45 sheep (or 100 animals including lambs) in rotation. There is infrastructure to service the animals from birth to slaughter, including a provincially licensed abattoir with walk-in cooler and freezer, and equipped cutting room. There is also housing for resident farmer/s.
As well as a sheep operation, there are opportunities for other agricultural enterprises on the land: i.e. the land is fertile and could sustain a market garden, and the wooded area would be ideal for pigs.
We are looking for people who are interested/excited to share the land, as well as people interested in forming a “group” to manage it; either part of an existing group or a new one (informal or formal). This is a long-term opportunity full of potential for a diversity of enterprises fostered by people with similar values in shared land tenure.
