ABOUT THE LAND

This farming opportunity is located in between the communities of Harrop and Procter nestled on the south side of the Kootenay River, north of Nelson. The landowners that reside on this property in Sunshine Bay are looking for organized and enterprising folks to farm commercially on their land! There are between 2 and 5 acres available for production, wether for a market garden operation, perennials, herbs, small livestock, bees and more!

There is a fenced garden area with some beds available and more space for further raised beds to be developed. The area above the garden comprises an open flat field, surrounded by forest that could be put into production with a little bit of elbow grease.

The 24 acre property has wifi and cell service and is located just minutes from the Harrop ferry. The communities of Harrop and neighbouring Procter are accessible by free cable ferry that crosses the Kootenay River. This ferry runs 24/7, 365.

The driving time to Kaslo is 40 minutes, 20 minutes to Ainsworth Hot Springs and 35 minutes to Nelson. The property is within walking distance of the lake and the Harrop-Procter Community Forest.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The land owners currently reside on the property. The land owners are hoping to find land seekers who have a long-term and well-developed vision for their farm business and share their values of producing healthy, local food!

The landowners are open to different business ideas that see this land in production. The land is on a north facing slope with water access that could be gravity fed, good drainage and ample sun exposure.

Interested farmers should be armed with a developed business plan and committed to organic and regenerative agricultural principles. There is also potential for on-site shop space for processing, packaging, commercial use for the right farmers and plan!

The property also has llamas that produce manure for food production inputs on the farm. The current landowners have owned the land for a number of years and are active members of their local community and food systems.
