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

This idyllic 6.48 acre property on the Naramata bench is mostly planted out  in apple orchard on a  west facing slope. The varieties currently planted are Spartans, Macintosh and Red Delicious with an average annual harvest  of 40,000 lbs.  There is also a pear block with Anjou and Bartlett varieties that produces about 8000 lbs per year. The orchard is currently leased out until November 2020.  The owners have installed a new irrigation system throughout which could be altered to suit a variety of new crops.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The owners are interested in seeing the land transition to organic methods and are interested in any creative possibilities a potential leasing farmer might bring to the table!  The apple trees are gorgeous, but aging and so they are open to replanting with a different crop; annuals, perennials, berries, flowers, nuts…. They are open to partnerships, collaboration and learning opportunities.  The long term vision is to create a beautiful, productive and healthy growing space that benefits the both community and the environment.
