Located just 7 miles north of the Town of Athabasca, Alberta on the west side of paved Highway 813 is ‘Upper Athabasca on 813’. The quarter comes with 143 acres of highly fertile land with approximately 125 acres under cultivation. Situated high on the Upper Plateau of the famed switchback in the Athabasca River, where the majestic river heads south and then seemingly finds its course when passing the Town and turning north to the Arctic.
Prime farmland on pavement offers unlimited options. Well-drained land with abundant topsoil high in organic matter makes for land known to produce big crops. The area is well known for consistent rainfall given its geographic location, high up on the plateau in the centre of the horseshoe carved out over thousands of years by the river. We know horseshoes are known for good fortune. We also know that buying farmland near larger urban centres such as the Town of Athabasca tends to ensure significant appreciation over time.
The quarter comes with two 'steel' savings accounts ready to store future crops. One a 2200 bushel Westeel hopper bin on tubular skids and the other a Meridian 4000 bushel hopper bin on tubular skids. The Purchase Price will be reduced by $14,000.00 at Closing if the bins are not delivered on or before the Closing date.
If you think this sounds too good to be true, you best be sitting down when you check out the low Starting Bid for this quarter section. Be sure not to miss the action when bidding opens on sale day. The Starting Bid is a mere fraction of what quarters sell for just 35 miles to the south west in Westlock County.
