ABOUT THE LAND
This land opportunity is located on a commercial farm in the Columbia Valley, between Golden and Radium, in the rural community of Spillamacheen. The property is immediately adjacent to the Pacific Flyway & Columbia Wetlands.
The land has several pasture gardens, including 3x 15′ by 50′ tilled gardens and one 15′ by 25′ bed, with two Farmer’s Friend caterpillars/hoop houses developed and negotiable. There are also at least two 15’x50′ plots additional available to be tilled and a sloped hill that could also potentially be used.
The north forest would support a forest farm concept. The land owners are implementing permaculture activities throughout the season — chickens and goats will be working the gardens. Trickle creek adjacent and a mountain spring plumbed to several locations for irrigation. There are a number of outbuildings and sheds — a new steel frame build was installed in the pasture last fall.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
This opportunity is ideal for experienced farmers who are interested in having a secured market for their produce through the farm’s farm gate sales (Fri-Sun potential) and farm-to-table cafe (daily, seasonal). There is potential for housing on site for the right single farmers or couples.
There is also a separate ‘live’ garden market opportunity, a very small but productive apple and cherry orchard 300m away at our restaurant, the Spilli Station Cafe. There is also a commercial kitchen at the cafe. The location has highway pullout and parking options. The TransCanada Highway diversion closure will push an incredible volume of traffic past the farm starting in 2021.
