LAND OPPORTUNITY: Farmstead opportunity in the Robson Valley, BC

Posted by Jolene Swain on December 04, 2020

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

Nestled in an oxbow of the Fraser River, this 148 acres in the stunning Robson Valley consists of 40+ acres of hay, 5 acres of pasture adjacent to the residence, and the remaining acreage in rough pasture and forest. The land is home to mixed livestock and small scale vegetable production, including sheep, cows, and poultry. Apart from the main residence, there is a second 2 bedroom home with ample space.

Property is off-grid with power coming from 2 creeks which run through the property. The ample water not only supplies power but also water for crops and livestock, and all the irrigation needs.

 

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

This opportunity would be well suited to a couple or small family looking to settle in the valley and work on independent or collaborative farming projects. There is a market garden on site, and diverse infrastructure for crops and livestock. Depending on the scale and needs of the incoming farmers, off-farm work may be needed, or there is opportunity to discuss a combination of rent and work-trade in exchange for help with the current operation, infrastructure projects, and maintenance. Having good neighbours who are able to look out for each other, and the farm, is a priority. 

While the land base is actively being used by the current owners, not all the fields are fully utilized and there is capacity to bring on some more animals, or section off an area for additional vegetable and crop production. Livestock preference would be for sheep, cows or other small, diverse livestock like poultry.
