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

ABOUT THE FARM

Ceres Circle Farm is a 36.8 acre livestock farm with a provincial abattoir licensed for sheep, goats and poultry in Kelowna, BC. The farm includes approximately 30 acres of pasture, cross-fenced into paddocks for rotational grazing. Most of the pasture is sub-irrigated low-lying land in the flood plain of Mission Creek and includes sandy loam soil with areas of gravel and muck soil. There is also a hill with silty soil and old-growth Douglas fir and pine trees near a 28 x 56 ft 3-sided lambing and hay shed. A five-acre woodlot supplies firewood for the farmhouse near the abattoir. A drilled registered well supplies two residences, the livestock, the abattoir and trickle-irrigated home gardens. In addition to sheep, the current tenants raise broilers, laying hens and ducks and sell meat, carded wool, hand-tanned sheepskins, eggs and custom slaughter, cut, freeze and wrap services to other farmers.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

This is an opportunity to run your own livestock operation and get immersed in the trade of butchery. The future tenants have the opportunity to take over a very profitable business with established clientele and learn at their own pace. There is currently a flock of sheep on the property which is for sale as well as some poultry processing equipment. It is a turn key operation that has been operational for years. 

We are searching long term tenants to take over the lease on the property. Upon successfully completing a 1- year lease, an option for longer tenure will be discussed.

No previous experience in butchery is required, though an interest in the work is essential. The current tenants can provide some training.
