MESSAGE FROM THE OWNERS
We have enjoyed a great life on this wonderful property, and the time is now approaching for us to move to a similar lifestyle on a smaller scale. After 50 years of developing this beautiful place with stewardship of the land as a high priority, we offer for sale a ranching operation that is seamlessly integrated with nature.
We are running this ranch as a business and as such everything is in move-in condition, with all necessary utilities in place and working properly.
For sale as three individual properties or a complete ranch.
100 Mile House, British Columbia Canada.
In the southern end of the Cariboo region of the province of BC, Canada. A quiet valley, only ten miles (16 km) from 100 Mile House, BC, a full-service center. 100 Mile has a trading area population of 20,000. The ranch is private and "isolated", with no through traffic and very little sign of the "outside" world.
For the rancher, parts, repairs, mechanics, hired hands, and tradespeople are only a short drive away. For the family, there are schools, sporting, and social activities, shopping, good restaurants, entertainment, and two large supermarkets. Good hospitals, doctors, dentists, professional services, seniors services, and government agencies are available locally.
Easy access to highways allows convenient travel by car, bus, or air. Williams Lake airport is just over an hour's drive and has scheduled commercial flights. There are two additional airports located minutes from the ranch - the South Cariboo Regional Airport and 100 Mile House (registered aerodrome).
Surrounded by Crown Land, this ranch property is webbed by miles of trails that meander through the forest. This forest has been designated Mule deer and Moose winter range with logging restrictions, which makes it a truly protected "greenbelt."
Production Ranch or Hobby Farm.
The ranch presently has a good, reputable business, selling hay to horse and cattle owners and earns enough income to support the owner or a ranch manager. The existing ranch-house could be a manager's residence, located near the main gate to provide good security.
Presently the vegetable gardens are organic, and the beef, pork, and poultry are raised naturally, on pasture in a healthy environment. This provides for as much self-sufficiency and good food as possible. No herbicides, pesticides, drugs, or hormones.
Some of the future functions of the ranch could include continuing to run it in its present form (generating income), or turning it into a large hobby farm or an impressive private estate.
The ranch property can support 50-100 head of purebred cattle. Naturally raised beef.
The ranch has some timber where it hasn't been cultivated or improved into pasture. The forest is of mixed-species: fir, spruce, aspen, and some pine. Selective logging works very well in this situation, with an opportunity to market value-added products such as house logs or timbers or lumber from a small sawmill.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RANCH
Live a dream, create a new life, become independent and self-sufficient.
A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE
The ranch house is spacious and functional, with a fine view of the valley.
The drinking water is of very good quality and flavour. With a 120 ft. well on LOT A producing 40 gal per minute.
Another 80 ft. well located on LOT B.
Good road maintenance, government-maintained right to the ranch gate...only your traffic to your ranch.
Electricity & phone service.
Located in a quiet valley approximately a mile long from the front gate.
Reasonably stable weather, warm in summer, and a little chilly in the winter.
The owner's concern for quality has made this property one of the best in its class in the Cariboo.
The public hasn't been allowed to hunt on the ranch so it is a sanctuary for wildlife. Moose, deer, bear, cougar, wolves, coyotes, fox, beaver, mink, muskrat, marten, lynx, ducks, geese, sandhill cranes, eagles, owls, and many more inhabit the surrounding area.
A nearby picturesque and pristine lake of approximately 65ha/160ac that has been classified “QUALITY” and is managed as a "trophy" fishing lake, stocked to provide large rainbow trout (presently 5-10 pounds). Limited access for fly-fishers, belly boats, and canoes make for a quiet experience, interrupted only by the loons.
A SANCTUARY & SAFE HAVEN
To invest in this dream BC farmland could offer a safe financial haven in uncertain times.
A refuge from insecure economies, a quiet place without political turmoil, away from the hustle and bustle of big cities, clean air, and pure water, no natural disasters like earthquakes or hurricanes.
British Columbia and Canada both have AAA credit ratings, a result of good fiscal management, commodity wealth, and solid economic performance in the past. The B.C. economy is growing and Canada’s future looks bright.
