Posted by Hailey Troock on September 21, 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

The owners of this opportunity near Nelson are looking for the right farmer/s and food forest / permaculture enthusiasts to join them to take over the market garden opportunity on this unique EcoRetreat property on the mountainside of Beasley.

The property was previously used for dairy production and cattle and still currently has a peony farm on site! The land has an orchard that was planted this year with variety of fruit and nut trees. There are two large gardens that are already fenced and ready to go! 

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The land can accommodate a few farmers and business ideas in the already fenced areas, which are also irrigated. The owners of the property and EcoRetreat business are hoping to find some farmers who are interested in providing vegetables to the retreat, the future on-site convenience store and food boxes for guests.

The right land seekers are free to explore economic opportunities on the property and sell retail or farm gate. This is a unique long-term opportunity for the right experienced farmers. Land seekers would also be working closely with the owners to market the produce to guests and the larger community through the existing business, so alignment in values, production methods and crop plans would be needed to some extent.
