Posted by Kiyomi Ito on August 22, 2023

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.


40 acres of cropland are available for a passionate farmer or group of farmers on this 125-acre ALR property in Nanoose Bay. This long term lease opportunity is ready for a steward(s) with big dreams and lots of experience. Previously, this land has seen wild meadows, cattle grazing, and a turf business. At present, 20 acres of the available land are uncut hay, which could be cultivated for crop production. With the right soil regeneration work, this land provides ample space and opportunity for large-scale crop production. An irrigation pond provides water year-round.


Up to 40 acres are on offer for a long term lease, available immediately. The landholders would like to lease out this under-utilized areas to a farmer, or groups of farmers. On the other portion of the property, the landholders operate a horse ranch and tourism business.

Ideally, the land will be used to produce vegetables – market gardens or field crops – but landholders are open to ideas, including grain and forage production. No livestock at this time, as there are already  horses on the property.

This is an opportunity for farmers who can generate steady revenues (at least $10,000/year) to help maintain farm status for the property. If you are looking to make a meaningful living in agriculture, this is a rare land opportunity that offers long term stability and acres of possibilities.
