Posted by Azja Jones Martin on May 03, 2021

We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at land@youngagrarians.org to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.

ABOUT THE LAND

This 80 acre property is surrounded by forest and located near the Powell River ferry in Comox. Deforested by the previous owners, the current landowners have recently cleared about 30 acres of stumps and are looking for a farmer to bring 1-5 acres into food production, depending on the farmer’s production plan. About 45 acres, behind a creek that bisects the property, is still in stumps.

The land is mostly level and has full exposure. Soil tests results can be made available to potential farmers. Water is municipal and a well may be drilled for additional agricultural use.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The landowners intention for the property is to create a productive farm – they plan on planting Christmas trees, blueberries, and possibly an orchard of fruit trees and a greenhouse which the farmer could use. A large three-bay barn and deer fencing will be erected this year. The landowners aim to lease to food producing farmers who will maximize the production potential of a portion of the land, ideally long term.

The farm vision is open to collaboration or evolution dependent on the needs and vision of the leasing farmer. Two tractors with various implements may be available as needed. The owner’s plan includes establishing 10 RV sites on the property – there will likely be capacity for the farmer to live on site if desired.
