ABOUT THE LAND

Approximately 4 acres of land in Silver Creek, 15 minutes from Salmon Arm situated on an existing 54 acre piece of land currently being farmed by the Voth’s owners and operators of Hillside Dreams Goat Dairy. https://www.hillsidedreamsgoatdairy.com/ The soil has been commercially farmed for hay and corn for many years and has been getting annual composted goat manure added. The land will be ready to use for the 2020 growing season. The land is in the ALR and prime for a market garden enthusiast. The land has all irrigation rights and some irrigation equipment. The land is located on a busy country road, making it ideal for selling direct to the consumer and is also close to the new Salmon Arm Farmer’s Market.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The owners are open to any kind of organic farming, except marijuana production, or factory farming. No livestock allowed due to bio-security. They are open to a long term lease. The ideal candidates have the enough experience to maintain the land to its current standard and be successful in their farming business. The owners and their two small children live and farm on the land, so someone who has good communication skills and is open to building a relationship.

The length of lease, building sharing and financial arrangements and potential to live on the property are all up for discussion for the right fit. Housing is available. 3 bedroom rancher with fenced yard, valued at $1700/month without utilities.  The house will be available November the 1st.  There is also excellent compost available!  Also 10-20 hours of paid employment on a commercial goat dairy per week is negotiable.

3 bedroom rancher available for rent on the farm.
