Posted by Fai Hui on January 29, 2021 8 Comments

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 land opportunity in the Bradner-Mt Lehman area of Abbotsford offers approximately 9 acres in the ALR. The landholder has farmed blueberries on the land for over 4 decades, and lives there.

About half the fields planted with mature, well-maintained, productive blueberries. There are two additional unirrigated fields that available that the current farmer has successfully cultivated with strawberries, raspberries, and other crops that don’t require irrigation. These fields have not been cultivated in the last year. There is city water available for the farmer’s use, though it is not feasible to irrigate the fields. The soil appears to be on the clay side (higher water retention properties).

The land is gently sloped towards the back of the property, and some areas of the property collect water in the rainy season. There is a farm road running to the back of the property, which borders a forested ravine area. The land is fenced on one side, and neighbours are a poultry farm and a flower farm.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The landholder is a retired blueberry farmer who is seeking someone to lease the land and take over management of the blueberry bushes and additional fields. The landholder is willing to share their knowledge. This opportunity would be suitable for someone with experience in blueberry production with knowledge of how to prune and manage the blueberries, as well as an established sales outlet.

Someone with equipment and established markets for blueberries would be ideal, though the landholder is open to negotiating the sale of farm equipment to a leasing farmer.

There are no structures available for storage, though the landholder is open to a farmer placing a small temporary storage structure on the land. Commercial liability insurance will be required.

Ideally, the landholder would like to find someone as soon as possible for the coming season.
