Sale Description

‘Thorhild County Express’ is comprised of a total of 159 acres selling as 2 Parcels and is located less than 4 miles NE of Newbrook, Alberta. Situated in the heart of Thorhild County, Highways 661, 831, and 63 are all within a stone’s throw.  Highway 63 is positioned 3 miles to the west and Highway 831 can be found 2 miles to the east. Both major thoroughfares form a part of the key corridor between Edmonton and Fort McMurray.

More titles bring added value. A farmer may wish to purchase both Parcels then consider selling off Parcel 2 to recreational enthusiasts and include a lease back on the cultivated acres. ‘Thorhild County Express’ was formerly a tree farm, leaving behind soil that is high in organic matter and ready to go to work for the new owner. Three years of rotational cropping has allowed the wood residue to decompose, which means yields will continue to increase as the nitrogen is released.

When looking to the west, north, and east, there is a significant quantity of Crown Land in proximity to ‘Thorhild County Express.’ Crown Land offers a sanctuary for an abundance of big game and waterfowl. If you are looking to escape life in the city and build your private retreat on deeded land, this could be it. After performing a bit of due diligence, you will likely find that the added benefit of owning a full quarter section versus a partial quarter is marginal at best. Whether you purchase seventy acres or ninety acres, you will receive the same level of enjoyment as a full quarter, but with half the payments.

Situated a mere 45 miles north of Fort Saskatchewan, ‘Thorhild County Express’ offers unlimited recreational opportunities. Whether ice fishing on Long Lake just 6 miles to the northeast or hunting geese in the pea stubble on your leased out cultivated acres, both Parcels of ‘Thorhild County Express’ are an outdoorsman’s paradise.
