Yes, Lac Cardinal Rules!  Located less than 9 miles northwest of Grimshaw, ‘Cardinal Rules’ is a prime example of when farming meets leisure all year round.  The Grimshaw area is a well-known agricultural district.  The Town of Grimshaw is even more important than local farming activities would indicate.  Grimshaw is strategically located for a distribution point for the entire North.  Home to Mile Marker Zero of the Mackenzie Highway, Grimshaw also boasts the Wilderness Park, incredible golf courses, and lakes – everything the outdoor enthusiast could ask for.  

PARCEL 1 of ‘Cardinal Rules’ is a predominately open half-section of fertile land that is currently in Canola and Barley.  With a little elbow grease and a dozer, this half-section has enormous potential to be completely open.  In addition to approximately 240 cultivated acres, the mature timber in the Northwest corner may be marketable.  This section is located a mere half mile from paved Highway 737 in between Range Roads 250 and 245.  The access on the west side has a treed area that would be a perfect spot to build that dream home.  Not only are the urban amenities in Grimshaw less than 15 minutes away, but you can also pack up the kids and drive less than ten minutes west to Figure Eight lake for a picnic in the summer and snowmobiling nearby in the winter.  If the crops surrounding this land are any indication of the potential yields that can be produced, you should be running to the bank.  

The farmland on PARCEL 2 is carved into a heavily treed area that provides shelter from the wind.  This half-section generates farm revenue from approximately 130 cultivated acres AND recreational opportunities.  With Cardinal Creek and the heavily treed areas providing sanctuary for animals, this idyllic half section is perfect for those looking for some peace and quiet within a stone’s throw of town.  In the summer, the lake is perfect for boating or kayaking and in the winter, Lac Cardinal is home to snowshoeing and pond hockey.  Overlooking the lake in the Southwest corner of Parcel 2, you will find an old yard site with power and a water well.  Enjoy the solitude of ‘Cardinal Rules’ while you look out over the tip of the lake and appreciate the beauty of the changing seasons.
