ABOUT THE LAND

This farming opportunity is located in Harrop, a small community nestled on the south side of the Kootenay River, north of Nelson. The land owners that reside on this property could have a seasonal caravan with limited amenities available for someone interested in helping out with the maintenance of the garden and small orchard. There is a fenced pasture available to increase food production and have small livestock.

The 50 acre property has wifi and cell service and is located just minutes from the Harrop ferry. The communities of Harrop and neighbouring Procter are accessible by free cable ferry that crosses the Kootenay River. This ferry runs 24/7, 365.

The driving time to Kaslo is 40 minutes, 20 minutes to Ainsworth Hot Springs and 35 minutes to Nelson. The property is within walking distance of the lake and the Harrop-Proctor Community Forest.

The property has been used for livestock, mainly alpaca and horses. The current landowners have been on the land for 16 years and have a small-scale personal garden, two horses and some stone fruit, apple and hazelnut trees.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The land owners currently reside on the property. They are making their 20 acre fenced pasture available. The land owners are in retirement and hoping to find a land seeker who may also be able to lend a hand with their personal production. They have years of experience to offer a land seeker in terms of mentorship and local knowledge and maintain a warm and hospitable environment on their scenic property.

The situation is suitable for someone interested in keeping small livestock, which would require some fencing repairs, or growing perennials like blueberries. The land is on a north facing slope with water access that could be gravity fed, good drainage and ample sun exposure.

There is seasonal housing on-site for interested land seekers with a plan to farm on the land. The land owners would like to assess fit and interests first, hoping to make a long-term arrangement with the right individuals. Due to the housing space, this opportunity would be ideal for a single land seeker or a couple that already lives in the area or who would only need rustic seasonal accommodation to tend to livestock or other crops.
