Sale Description

‘Ponderosa North’ is comprised of 159 acres located on the northern boundary of Thorhild County, and just 6 miles north of Mapova, Alberta. Not only is this a cutting-edge location for farming and ranching, the added benefit of the exceptional number of recreational activities available on the doorstep cannot be overlooked.

You may affectionately remember the show Bonanza, one the longest-running westerns in broadcast history, where the Cartwright family ran the Ponderosa Ranch near Virginia City, Nevada. While the new owner of ‘Ponderosa North’ may not view the desert mountains as their backdrop, the unique northern Alberta landscape provides its own distinctive beauty. This is situated in an area known for big game animals, secluded lakes that are not overrun with daytime visitors, and the significant rainfall needed for great crops and healthy pasture.

Ponderosa North

‘Ponderosa North’ includes approximately 60 acres of cultivated land that was planted in barley in 2023, and approximately 40 acres of pastureland that is complete with cow-ready fences. There is also a 1,200 sq ft cabin with a wood stove, water well, natural gas, septic pump out, and lovely yard with a mature shelter belt.

‘Ponderosa North’ offers the best of both worlds: ease of access is readily apparent with paved Hwy 827 forming a portion of the western boundary, and the feeling of solitude with Crown Land forming nature’s playground to the north. This mixed operation farm combines extensive improvements with a low starting bid and would be a great addition for any neighboring land owner, provide a solid start for a young family, or a quiet recreational retreat for a weekend getaway.
