Description and historical use of land available for farming

The land is part of a bigger farm that we live on. Those 20 acres of pasture have been used as pasture for as long as I know. It is divided into two halves (the cross fence needs some maintenance) and there is a shelter in one half. Year-round gravity feed water comes out to a trough in each half. We have had horses, cows and sheep grazing there.

Road Access
Yes - Separate 16 foot gate into the land off of Mountain View Rd.

Long-term goal or vision for land

This would be a great piece for someone who doesn't have any of their own farmland but would like to try a herd of sheep or a few cows. They could build a hay shed and have animals there year round. It's only 3 km from McBride.

Known environmental hazards (wildfire area, flooding, etc.)
Yes - some flooding briefly in the lower part of the pasture in the spring.

Yes - no one lives on the 20 acres, but we live and farm on the rest of the property.
