The property has a a few fenced pastures available that are accessed from the road just off the highway.

The residential lot has wifi and cell service. The driving time to central Salmo is 2 minutes. The current owner has been on the property for a number of years and and looking for some like-minded people to use the land for food production, as they are unable to physically manage the property on their own.


The landowner currently resides on the property in a main residence and has an alpaca operation with 15 alpacas. The alpacas produce a steady supply of organic fertilizer for any farming operation that is undertaken on this land.

There are a few parcels available for garden development. The land is flat, has water access and there a variety of tools, like 4 tractors with implements, which can be made available for the land seeking farmers.

As the land has rich soil from the rotational grazing of the alpacas. The situation is suitable for someone interested in growing crops like vegetables or perennials and a work exchange helping with the alpacas in order to access their manure as fertilizer.

The land owners would like to assess fit and interests first, hoping to make a long-term arrangement with the right individuals.
