Posted by Morgan Kitchen on October 28, 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

New farm co-operative in beautiful Fort St John, the Peace River region of BC, currently running cattle, harvesting forages and grain, is looking to expand in a coop setting! Pure Pastures Regenerative Farm (PPRF) is an operating 2,000 + acre ranch that is looking to integrate other farming folks and agriculture businesses. Small livestock, agritourism, and market gardening are just a few ideas of farm businesses that would be welcomed at the coop.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

While the ranch is undergoing changes, the land holders are very excited to be starting a farm cooperative for farmers with a similar vision and goal with the development of the coop. Regenerative practices, adapting agriculture practices to our changing climate, and thinking outside the box are a few key points that must align in the vision of PPRF.

Housing on the ranch could be made available but temporary housing (travel trailer, tiny home, etc.) would be welcome as well!

The ideal candidate for this land opportunity is someone who aligns with the above mentioned visions, and is willing to work cooperatively with other like minded, farm enthusiastic folks. While pasture for grazing cattle is not available with this land opportunity, other small livestock (goats, sheep, hogs, poultry), agritourism, and market gardening are all welcomed ideas! The size of the land opportunity that would be made available would depend on the nature of the farming business. Interested candidates must show some business planning prep or be willing to work towards building a business plan. The BC Land Matching Program can provide support in business planning.

The landholders have a true passion for farming, regenerative agriculture and building a community of farming folk in the Peace River of BC. Please connect with the land matcher listed below for further information!
