Sale Description

‘Scotsman's Delight' is a wide-open quarter of farmland located between Highland Park and Scotswood, Alberta.  A mere 16 miles west of the significant agriculture centre of Fairview Alberta.  The quarter is 2.5 miles east of the Mighty Peace River's upper banks, in what is known as the Highland Park area, in the MD of Fairview.  Highland Park is celebrated for a region of highly fertile land in Northern Alberta and a legendary whiskey region in Northern Scotland. 

[]Known for being frugal, it is not hard to figure out why the odd Scotsman headed for this area along with other eastern European immigrants looking for land.  Head west on highway 682 from Fairview.  As soon as you cross the expansive ravine and head up into Highland Park land, prices magically soften.  Compared to the Cage area just 12 miles to the northeast or the Friedenstal area 18 miles to the south-east, land in the Highland Park area sells for significantly less while still producing big crops.  This quarter is predominantly number 2 soil under the Alberta Agriculture and Forestry classification system, meaning it is equivalent to some of the best land in the area.

Whether you’re looking to establish a new farm, add to your existing Highland Park farm or wish to start the foundation of a satellite farm, this quarter will be of interest.  More quarters are quite likely coming up for sale nearby.  We know that Western Canada is known for pockets of good quality land that has not been pressured price-wise like other similar lands.   Buying in these softer areas before the big wave arrives, which it always does, will surely make that Net Worth Statement look good on your banker's desk in short order.  The adrenalin rush that comes with riding the wave's crest is always a better feeling than being trampled by the wave.  Register your spot in line now to ride the wave on April 7th.  Starting Bid is priced to garner interest.

Please review the Purchase Agreement in the Parcel Details section to see the specifics of the offer.  Note: If buying as an investment, the existing tenant has expressed an interest in continuing to rent.
