LAND OPPORTUNITY: Acreage for Agricultural Production – Saanichton, BC

Posted by Azja Jones Martin on April 20, 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 property in rural Saanich has at least 10+ acres available for agricultural use by someone with a vision. Most of the available area is sloped and is overgrown with blackberries and broom, but some of the area is flat and in pasture (perhaps about 1 acre). Water access is from ponds on the property, and some waterline infrastructure is in place. No fencing or outbuildings. Soil is sandy, loamy in some areas and gravelly in others.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The landowner is open to what type of agricultural activity takes place on the land, provided the revenue threshold for farm status can be achieved. The farmer can bring a mobile home or trailer to the land to live on site, this would be required if the farmer would like to raise animals on the property (it would be a great place for goats!). The landowner is open to possibly supporting with funding business startup, dependent on a strong business plan, or partnering in an operation if wanted. The landowner has a lifetime of farming experience and is open to providing some mentorship. Some equipment is on site (trailers, etc) and could be available for use by the farmer.

A lease would start with a trial season and can continue very long term if the arrangement is working well for all parties.
