ABOUT THE LAND

This 3 acre parcel in Lake Country, BC is currently planted in Haskap berries, however the current farmer will be removing the plants this fall and opening up the area for other annual crop growers.  The soil is very fertile and easy to work, a sandy loam – very clean and with no rocks. It has an irrigation system all set up in 4 separate plots, 3 plots are .7 acre and 1 is .5 acre.  The water comes form the Central Okanagan Irrigation District and gives 20 gallons/minute. Each bed is 250 ft in length and the spacing between rows can be adjusted to fit the planting plan of the new leasing farmer. The farmable land is fully perimeter fenced and gated with brand new 8 foot deer fencing. There is no power to the leased area currently, but if that was a necessary requirement, it could be possible to run power from a nearby pole.  There is a port a potty and hand wash station on site. Tool sheds, hoophouses and other temporary infrastructure necessary for you farm operation are permitted. 

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The current farmer has all the necessary equipment for prepping the beds, putting them to bed and re-working the irrigation system and is willing to offer these services as a part of the annual lease fee. He is also a knowledgeable grower and would be happy to provide his horticultural expertise and support.  He will also take responsibility for managing the automatic watering system and scheduling between growers. The lease rate would be $1000/year for each small parcel. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is ready to put crops in next spring and would like the support of equipment and expertise.
