We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at email@example.com to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.
ABOUT THE LAND
1+ acre of this 100+ acre heritage farm in Pitt Meadows is available for farming. There are 3 plots situated next to a bustling farm store with a butcher, grocer, bistro and outdoor dining area. Most of the remaining acreage is planted with cranberry and used to raise cattle. There is access to (drip) irrigation, electricity, equipment, and storage. There are 2 hoop frames available for poly-tunnels. The soil is rich silty loam.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
The landholders would like to make the land available to an enterprising local grower, that can maintain a safe, well-managed, and presentable farm. They are open to flower, vegetable, herb, berry production or bee keeping. Situated next to the farm store with lots of customer traffic, there are numerous revenue opportunities. Produce can be sold via a farm stand, CSA, u-pick, through the onsite grocer and educational or public tours may be conducted. A skilled grower (market garden vegetables, flowers, etc), that can operate quite independently would be ideal. A community-focused enterprise (open to the public), with opportunities for education, farm tours, or u-pick would be welcome. The landholders are open to different business models, and arrangements.

4 thoughts on “LAND OPPORTUNITY: 1+ ACRE MARKET GARDEN, U-PICK FLOWER, EDUCATIONAL FARM – PITT MEADOWS, BC”
Good morning. My wife and I have had a commercial broiler breeder farm in Linden, Alberta. We have recently sold our breeder quota so our barns are presently empty. We have 174.9 kWp solar array on 4 of our barns. We also have 20 acres of arable land. We live on the farm and presently have a second home on our farm that we want to rent out. I don’t bring any expertise as far as organic gardening to the table. I believe their could be a good opportunity for someone to grow and market vegetables etc. off my land and there would be most of the tools to get started. We are an hour northeast of Calgary and 1 hour southeast of Red Deer. I’m curious if there would be any young agrarians with some experience in gardening that would see potential in our land and an opportunity to live on the farm as well. Our daughter and her husband use to live on the farm and have been successful at growing a different variety of organic vegetables and flowers on our land. They have been connected to young agrarians in the past. Let me know if you see any potential with what I’m offering and feel free to contact me for more info. Mike and Rosalie Klassen
