Property Description

463-acre south-facing ranch, 50 minutes from Quesnel on the Quesnel River. Two homes, barn, shop, walk-in cooler and numerous outbuildings. 2600 ft of riverfront on the Quesnel River. 67 acres irrigated hay land and 100 acres improved pasture—fenced and cross-fenced. 30 hp pump plus mainline and sprinkler lines. Water rights on the Quesnel River for 160 acre/ft. Good internet and cell reception

  • Unique and beautiful river valley with productive micro-climate
  • Currently set-up for sheep and market vegetables but could reasonably provide for 50 cow/calf pairs
  • Class e slaughter license to legally operate a small scale abbatoir
  • Large productive mixed-aged forest, ideal for a managed woodlot; could supplement mixed farming or ranching
  • Quiet and peaceful with very little traffic – dead-end road
  • Lots of underused agricultural potential in this valley

This is one of a very few properties along the Quesnel river in an area where properties rarely come up for sale. The entire property has been under organic management for over 30 years. The primary value of this property is its diversity. Southern exposure and long summer days combine to produce optimum growing conditions on the river benches (typically two cuts of hay). The upland forest and pasture are perfectly suited for pasturing livestock while providing income from strategic woodlot management.

A beautiful tranquil setting on the breath-taking Quesnel River within easy access to the city of Quesnel. This is the ultimate property for someone with the vision and enthusiasm to develop a productive and profitable small ranch.
