Land in Slocan Park

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 farming opportunity in development is located in Slocan Park, a small community of just over 120 households nestled in the Slocan Valley about 30 minutes from Nelson, BC.

The tenants that reside on this property are working with the land owners to make some land available on the fertile property bordering the Slocan River. Sunlight hours can be limited in winter months and somewhat shorter in this part of the valley in the summer than other growing areas because of the surrounding mountains.

The property is just under 6 acres and is surrounded by deer fencing. The portion of the property for lease is around 4 acres, though the open area is around two and has been hayed for the past few years.

Organic chicken was farmed on the land for 5 years but hasn’t been in operation for the past 3 years.  The rest of the land has some fruit trees and some old farm buildings, which could be torn apart to use the wood for other uses.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The open area would be suitable for market garden, bee keeping or nursery production. The farmers could potentially construct a hoophouse on the land and have laying hens in the old chicken house.

There are a few permanent tenants that live on the main residence of the property and the portion for rent is in the back area. There are several fruit trees on the property and ample water for irrigation. There is no housing available on the land so this opportunity is ideal for someone already living in the Slocan Valley and looking for a fenced space with water access to get through garden going or growing!

The land owners will be fielding inquiries on a continuous basis to assess fit and interests first, hoping to make a long-term arrangement with the right individuals.
