To arrive at the Miller farm, take a right off the Alaska Highway on 17th Street and head north on paved 219 Road. As you travel north from Dawson Creek the rolling hills and spectacular Rolla landscape will most likely fetch memories of more exotic locations you have seen around the world. After crossing the Sweetwater Road, take a left on 224 Road arriving at the intersection of the 221 Road. Big decisions are to be made at this corner of Parcel 3.
If you’re that couple looking for that decades old mature farmstead upon which to build your dream home, you will want to release the brake and head due west from the intersection. Travelling west you may need a bit of imagination as you turn north into the yard. The tall windbreak on the west however will confirm your dream was planted decades ago. The farmstead has both power and telephone. This is not an acreage, but rather a home quarter with 160 acres upon which to assemble a hobby farm and raise a family. 140 acres are currently under cultivation. This quarter section comes with all buildings and bin storage. If your work relates to the oilfield, chances are your work day will start by turning right out of the yard each morning and heading just minutes west to the Farmington area.
If you’re a local farmer, after checking out Parcel 3 you will want to proceed north on the low-profile 221 dirt road bordering the east side of the farm. The entire Miller farm is made up of prime soil, high in organic matter. In reality, some of the most fertile land in all of Western Canada, and for a fraction of the price of many areas in the south. As you travel north you will arrive first at Parcel 2 on your left. Parcel 2 is part of a half section that can be farmed together adjoining Parcel 1 north of it. The half section has 255 acres under cultivation. Just set the GPS and go. All the land was sprayed with glyphosate in the fall of 2018 and then subsequently disked to ensure the land is clean for its new owner.
If your heart starts racing as you head further down 221 Road, chances are you’re interested in recreation and hunting. The dirt road will not alarm you – you have been here before – dirt and dust brings good things. The faster you go the sooner you get there. The north end of the road delivers you to the rugged upper south bank of the Kiskatinaw River. See a bull moose but looking for that that elusive big whitetail? Just wait ten minutes. Parcel 1 is a full quarter section with over 100 acres of arable land with the remaining 60 acres made up of bush and natural area cascading down to the river. It can get no better if you love nature! The entire north and west perimeter of Parcel 1 is rimmed with mature forest meandering along the upper crest of the river below.
