Sale Description

A mere two and a half miles east of the overpass entrance into the town of Vegreville, Alberta, you will find 'The Long Mile Vegreville' abutting Highway 16, the Yellowhead Highway.  With a grand total of over six thousand feet of highway frontage bordering the north perimeter of the Yellowhead, the two parcels combined make up an oversized mile.

The area was initially settled in the late 1800s by French-Canadian settlers immigrating from Kansas; the same US state known as the breadbasket of the United States.  Need we say more about the quality of the farmland in the Vegreville area itself?  

In addition to good soil, great crops also need water.  With peak precipitation in June and July each year, this location checks the box.  In total, an average of over 4 inches of rain falls during these two months – exactly when it is most advantageous in a 120-day growing season.
