KELOWNA, BC: Urban Farm Business for Sale – NEW PRICE OFFER

Posted by Tessa Thompson on December 06, 2022

We are looking for an immediate sale of our turnkey business.  Lightfoot Farm is a small scale vegetable farm which produces a variety of crops for local markets.  The farm currently leases land right on the edge of residential Kelowna and  15 minutes from downtown.

Over the last 6 years we have built multiple relationships with chefs, grocery store managers and those that support the Kelowna Farmer Market but we think this business still has massive potential to grow exponentially.  Sales for the 2022 season will be around $50,000.  Average growth over the last 3 years has been between 12-15% annually.

The land size we have access to is 2 acres but are currently growing on  just under 1 acre in production.  The other acre was in cover crop this year and could easily be put into immediate use.  It was just too much for one person to do alone.  Lightfoot Farm is working with the BC Land Matching Program to transfer the land lease to the new owner and ensure that the lease is stable, secure, legally reviewed and uniquely negotiated to meet both the new farmer and the land owners needs.

Ideally we would be looking for someone (preferably a couple) to take ownership at the beginning of the 2023 season (February-March) and could be trained how to start the farm up and general day-to-day running of operations.  Some basic farming experience would be a huge advantage.

Included in the sale would be approx. $30,000+ of equipment and established infrastructure which is listed below:

  • ’99 Toyota Tacoma and trailer (used for Farmers Market and deliveries)
  • BCS tractor with Flail mower, rear tine tiller and rotary plow attachments
  • Multiple unheated high tunnels (2730 sq ft of grow space)
  • 60′ heated nursery
  • 30′ tool shed/workshop
  • Wash/pack station 
  • 2 x coolers
  • Early season heated seed starting grow room
  • Irrigation equipment
  • Tractor access
  • Landscape fabrics, specialized hand tools, seed starting equipment etc
  • Not included is the land itself and/or accommodation.

We are listing our business at $70,000.  All equipment, tools and infrastructure is negotiable and dependent on a potential buyer’s requirements.
