Sale Description

Farmers, turn off your engines for a minute.  Even if slightly hard of hearing, you should be able to hear the distant roar of the incoming tidal wave scheduled to hit High Prairie in mid-November.   For the first time in decades a large tract of arguably some of the most fertile land around will be up for auction.  An auction where past prices mean nothing.  An Auction that will move the needle for years to come and serve as a one-way ratchet aligning prices closer to those seen in the Falher area to the west or Westlock area to the east.   Ken & Kim Hubar's farmland for sale on November 7, 2019 offers that perfect opportunity to catch the wave in advance and buy before the swell is in. Let the wave carry you for a lift and enjoy the sensation of knowing you nailed it as opposed to spending the winter beating yourself for missing an opportunity of a lifetime.

[]Parcel A (SE 13-75-17-W5) has 152 cultivated acres of highly fertile farmland only 4 miles north  of the town of High Prairie.   This parcel is a show stopper with a full half mile of paved frontage.  All utilities including town water are available at or near the property border.  A great place to build your home offering quick and easy access onto Secondary 749 for work to the south or play to the north.  Rent your new home quarter out while enjoying all the amenities that come with country living close to urban amenities.   

Parcel B (SW-8-75-16-W5) is 148 cultivated acres.  Like Parcel A, this quarter is perfect for pulse crops being virtually free of rocks.  Just 3 miles from a major centre equates to solid demand from both urban and rural buyers if you ever decide to liquidate your investment.  This outstanding parcel of land comes with a 40’x 50’ metal clad shop with a dirt floor and large doors, along with a sizeable former yard site containing a vintage barn and small mature treed area. An old log cabin remains hidden in the trees. Utility lines, including town water are available at or near the property border. There are great community minded neighbors nearby. This property can continue with current renters, or take advantage of farming it yourself, or use the proximity to town to convert to other business opportunities.  

[]Parcel C (SE-10-74-16-W5) offers up over 100 acres of deep black soil that will work 24/7 for your bottom line.  You cannot hide excellence in farming and this quarter has been well known to generations of neighbours for consistently producing bumper crops. Parcel C is truly a one off.  At the end of a dead-end road, Parcel C truly offers any buyer an opportunity to stay and play for a lifetime.  Build your dream home along the secluded upper bank and on the weekends or evenings hike with your kids or grandkids down over the treed cliff that opens onto a spectacular sandy beach area along the westerly bank of the East Prairie River.   Down under they might just call it Prairie Heads looking down from above on the cliff.  A private hideaway where wind is diminished, senses enhanced and memories are made. Imagine great family times, quaint romantic get togethers or entertaining on summer evenings. Buy this quarter, only 5 miles east, southeast of High Prairie, and sell the RV or lake lot and forget about dealing with crowds.   All this while enjoying annual revenue from renting out the quarter to area farmers.  It quite simply doesn’t get any better.  

Parcel A, B and C of the Hubar farm will be offered for sale by way of on-line electronic tender by  Check website for details from time to time.
