LAND OPPORTUNITY: 30 acres of open land in the woods of Argenta

Posted by Hailey Troock on January 10, 2022

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.


The land is located in Argenta, a rural community located at the north end of Kootenay Lake, just under two hours drive from Nelson. The land is situated on a gentle south-west facing slope and offers excellent soil and stunning views of the lake, river and mountains.

The property has been partially logged and cleared of trees in some areas, totalling around 30-40 acres of potentially cultivable land out of the 152 total (most of which is forested). More land can be cleared as needed.


This is an opportunity for someone interested in raising livestock, having a market garden or perennials. There are small farmers markets located in Meadow Creek and Kaslo. Commercial vegetable farms in the area also transport their produce to the Nelson market.
There is water access and mentorship available from the landholder who lives on the property in a small off-grid cabin. There is access to a small bulldozer. Electricity can be on or off-grid and small non-permanent homes may be moved onto the property at the owner’s discretion. The construction of small cabins is also an option.
There are no farm buildings or cell service on the property so this opportunity is ideal for someone who has experience starting farms from raw land and without existing farm infrastructure. The landowner is willing to help with land preparation including removing stumps etc. Argenta offers an idyllic rural lifestyle surrounded by the unspoiled beauty of the North Kootenay valley.
