ABOUT THE LAND
If mountains, cattle and living away from it all are all things you are passionate about – this may be the right land opportunity for you! Situated 170 km South of Vanderhoof, this 565 acre cattle ranch is remote and requires someone passionate to bring it back to full operating capacity. The ranch has run 70-80 cow/calf pairs previously and has adjacent hay fields. Of the 565 acres, 329 acres are located 6-7 miles away up river from the main ranch yard. Rangeland also surrounds the ranch for cattle grazing.
Existing fence is in place but will require repair, along with some infrastructure. Equipment (tractor, backhoe, dump truck, hay equipment and sawmill) are available but do require someone mechanically inclined to maintain. At this time there is no housing available on the ranch but welcome a cabin to be build or a mobile type housing be brought on the land.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
The ranch and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. The ideal candidate for this land opportunity is someone who is used to this lifestyle and understands living remotely. You must be innovative, mechanically inclined, self sufficient and passionate. Water is hauled from local water sources, there is no cell service (but you can get internet!) and the commute to Vanderhoof on a summer day is about 3 hours.
The end goal is to find someone who would want to take over the ranch in a non-family farm transition arrangement. The landowners have so much knowledge to share for the next farmers who take over.
