You will find ‘Edgerton's Maiden’ just four miles north of Edgerton, Alberta. This quarter section located on the eastern side of Wainwright County has yet to make the front page. Currently in tame hay and being grazed by cattle, ‘Edgerton's Maiden’ has never been pushed and is largely unraced: precisely what any astute bookie is looking for when looking to invest and win big. Buy that fundamentally unproven Maiden and end up the favourite in a Grade 1 Stakes race in a couple of years. Given the fertility of the soil, this is not a long shot by any stretch of the imagination. This quarter has been grazed by cattle for decades, which has allowed for the opportunity to build organic soil matter and prime the land to be farmed with high value crops such as Canola. The new owner will not need to worry about pre-existing crop diseases, such as clubroot, that could be a concern on a quarter that is already being farmed. ‘Edgerton's Maiden’ is ready to work 24/7 down the backstretch for any new owner considering converting it to cropland.
Located just 16 miles east of Wainwright, and 1.5 miles south of major Highway 14, ‘Edgerton's Maiden’ is situated in a sweet spot for agriculture in east-central Alberta. The region is known for ample rainfall with long degree-growing-days, meaning a vast array of crops can be grown in rotation. Legumes thrive given the moderate PH of the soils. ‘Edgerton's Maiden’ comes with a few blemishes that can be worked out in short order. There are over 120 arable acres in tame hay that are currently being grazed by cattle, however, a new owner in possession will undoubtedly look to clean up a lot of brush and low areas to increase the number of arable acres. If you are unsure about the undulating terrain, just check out the crops on similar adjoining quarters this season. In the end buying a quarter and then removing some blemishes is sure to put you farther out front than buying a quarter already maximized for arable acres. What better investment opportunity than buying a quarter, yet to break its Maiden, in an area known to be somewhat behind the pace of current farmland prices? Quarters just forty miles to the north near Vermilion, Alberta, have sold for over three times the starting bid of ‘Edgerton’s Maiden.’
