Expansion potential (acres)
State of the surface of the cultivable area
The field is flat and in full sun. There is a seasonal, drainage stream on one side but that is not included in the size as listed. It is currently mixed grasses.
Description and historical use of land available for farming
For at least the last 20 years, the land has been used for horse grazing. About 8 years ago the area was covered with a layer of new soil which was excavated from the horse paddock areas, tilled in and reseeded with mixed grasses. The excavated soil was a well-composted mixture of soil, accumulated animal waste and many layers of decomposed hog fuel.
Yes - The field is beside a road separated by a fence. A gate could be installed.
Yes - Reception is patchy in this area but usually available.
Long-term goal or vision for land
We want to keep much of our land primarily for grazing but we have more land than we need for this purpose so we are open to designate some areas for other agricultural purposes. In addition to this, there are wooded and shrubby areas we want to maintain as wildlife habitat.
Known environmental hazards (wildfire area, flooding, etc.)
Yes - There are deer, rabbits and raptors in the area. There are also rare sightings of predatory animals (bears). Wildfire is a potential issue but there are several fire hydrants on the street.
Current residents living on property
Yes - Two adults live in a house on the property (mum and daughter).
Availability of farm buildings
Land is fenced
Yes - The area is fenced on 3 sides but currently they are not sheep or deer proof. Another stretch of fence will be needed to close off the fourth side.
Availability of farm machinery and tools
Water rights to these sources
Restricted access of visitors
Yes - We would need to be informed about who else to expect on the property and when they were coming.
