Posted by Tessa Thompson on August 15, 2022

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

There are 1-3 acres of land in the ALR available for a long term lease.  This land was historically a pear orchard, but, has been used for sheep, cattle, horses and gardens in the last 35 years.

Presently there is a deer fenced market garden about 0.25 of an acre in size. The market garden area has been developed with inline drop irrigation, permanent beds, landscape fabric in paths for weed suppression. The has been very well managed and the soil amended over the years to create a rich, fertile, productive space.

The rest is fenced, irrigated pasture.  The land is sloped and faces southwest.  There are different sites and soils available depending upon desired crops.

ABOUT THE OWNERS

We have resided on the land and continuously farmed it since 1985.  At this time we would like to continue to live here but are interested in finding someone to farm it long term.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

This is a land lease only with no opportunity for residing on the land.

There are storage buildings available and most of the tools needed for market gardening including drip irrigation supplies.

The land is located off of a main road with paved driveway access.

Expansion of the market garden is a possibility along with orchard production.

Livestock are not desirable at this time.

We are open to various opportunities with favorable lease conditions.
