Posted by Hailey Troock on July 28, 2021

We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.


This land opportunity is located on a 16 acre property in the community of Johnson’s Landing, nestled in the west-facing mountain side at the northern end of Kootenay Lake, one hour from Kaslo or two hours from Nelson, on the East side. The Purcell Wilderness Conservancy backs the property and the Fry Creek Trail is near.

The land can support mixed production, including vegetable, poultry and permaculture practices. The current tenant keeps dual-purpose heritage breed chickens;  including Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Australorp, Wyandotte, Ameracauna, Light Sussex, Polish, and Chantecler (the only Canadian chicken breed), as well as 3 bantam breeds: Silkies, Cochins and Sebrights.


The current tenant of this property is looking for someone to invest in this property as a co-owner and farming partner. The tenant has first right of refusal and has raised half of the funds to secure the land. They are looking to find another investor with access to $160 000 to cover the other half of the sale price of the property. The property is not insurable and cannot be mortgaged.

This homesteading co-ownership opportunity is a long-term land sharing scenario and ideal for someone who has supplementary income, savings or online work to support themselves while living there.

The population of the surrounding area is very small so there is a limited market for commercial production. The closest markets for sale are located in Meadow Creek and Kaslo.

Another farmer/potential co-owner resides on the property in the main residence so experience living with others on a shared property is an asset and clear and respectful communication is essential.


This land opportunity is part of the B.C. Land Matching Program. If you are interested in this land opportunity, please contact
