Sale Description

112 years ago some may have asked what it would take to leave Rolla, Missouri, considered the breadbasket of the USA, in search of greener pastures. The answer can be found at the end of the 1,800 mile trek, in what would eventually become Rolla, British Columbia. Farmland does not get any better than the ‘Rolla Homestead.’ Fifty years ago, the current owners of ‘Rolla Homestead’ made a similar trek from the Fraser Valley, to establish a first-class, mixed-family farm near Rolla, BC. For two sets of farmers, generations apart, to trade the Fraser Valley, and Missouri, for the Rolla area, speaks to the quality of the land.

Located less than 11 miles due north of the major urban centre of Dawson Creek, BC, ‘Rolla Homestead’ checks all the boxes when it comes to an exclusive, well-maintained farmstead and boasts soil that is ranked in the top category of the Peace Country. Home to a former feedlot, the biomass of ‘Rolla Homestead’ has been enhanced over the years, and any soil test will surely make your agronomist smile. Do the math on growing fertility levels of ‘Rolla Homestead’, and one will come to appreciate what a bovine's back end can do for sustainable agriculture. The $8,000 annual Lease Revenue is a nice added bonus.

‘Rolla Homestead’ is priced to fire on sale day. Get the farmstead for free with a Starting Bid set close to what an exceptional open quarter might sell for without improvements; the same quarter in Central Alberta would sell for multiples of the Starting Bid. On the converse, a farmstead of this calibre would likely sell for more than the Starting Bid, so get the 130 acres of prime land for free.

The well was cut and capped in 2021. There is further environmental work to do at the site including but not limited to reclamation earthworks. This work will be initiated likely this summer. Following that there will be a period of 2-3 years of monitoring before we apply for a Certificate of Restoration. So, lease payments will still occur for another several years while this process continues.
