LAND OPPORTUNITY: Land share on organic farm in development in Slocan Park

Posted by Hailey Troock on March 01, 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 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 landowners have just purchased this property and keen to make some land available. 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 currently unfenced but in development and will have deer fencing installed in 2021. There is an access road and a well will be dug. The landowners will be planting this spring and starting with indoor mushroom cultivation. They plan on selling nursery seedlings and will have a greenhouse on the land.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

This opportunity is suitable for someone interested in regenerative practices. There will be natural water catchment systems and organic agriculture practices on the property. The land is unzoned.

The open area would be suitable for a farmer with capital, someone running a small business on the property. Sheep or small livestock could be grazing on the land and the landowner is open to collaborate on growing medicinal and native plants. They are open to chickens (meat or eggs). Someone interested in agroforestry and foraging – wild crafting in the correct management zones – is also welcome.

The landowners are open to someone who wants to do a market garden, has some cash crops in mind or wants to produce honey or medicinal mushrooms. They are  also open to perennials (berries, nut trees or fruit trees).

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.
