Sale Description

Utopia Feels is Okanagan's premiere luxury agritourism and CRAFT-farm located in Lavington, British Columbia. Situated in an area with a micro-climate that favors forward-thinking, natural agricultural producers, ‘Utopia Micro-Farming’ is a botanical farm and glampground that is nestled in a former tree nursery. This incredibly diverse backdrop lends a rugged beauty to an already stunning mountain location.

The topography around ‘Utopia Micro-Farming’ is ideal for producers, or to simply sit back and enjoy the sunshine in the Coldstream area; to quote the locals: ‘it is always sunny in Lavington’. Found a quick 14-minute drive east of downtown Vernon in the Coldstream area, the area is known for a consistent sun to rain ratio and temperate climate. Historically, the valley around Coldstream Creek has been reasonably sheltered from forest fires.

As the saying goes: you can never pay too much for good land and too little for poor land. Many of the farms in the area consist of 8ft of fertile black loam soil, which is the root of any good farm. ‘Utopia Micro-Farming’ is even better than good; it has not been sprayed with chemicals for the last four years. The foundation of ‘Utopia Micro-Farming,’ according to the current owners, was built on 'living in harmony with nature, producing sustainably, and not stifling innovation.'

Comprised of 19.57 titled acres in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) zone, with an impressive 17 acres (6.88 ha) of irrigation, this property comes complete with farm status. The Regional District of North Okanagan's annual water allocation provides close to ten million gallons of water, providing a sure footing for an orchard or winery. Prospective buyers need only look across the road at the Gala apple orchard, or at the impressive grape and blueberry farms in the area, to verify that this property is situated in an area known to produce successful and sustainable farms.

Innovation is key when it comes to feeding the world of tomorrow and vertical farming practices are allowing farmers to produce significantly more food on the same amount of land. ‘Utopia Micro-Farming’ boasts 50 commercial-grade aeroponic towers, automated irrigation, and nutrient dosing systems. Each tower can accommodate 44 plants, affording a combined total of 2,200 plants in this relatively small space, thus providing natural foods with three times faster growth and using up to 95% less water than traditional farming practices. Not only is the infrastructure in place to make this a turn-key farming operation, but the current owners also have a Temporary Use Permit in place for agritourism short-term accommodations.

The main residence was built in 1967 and features five bedrooms and three bathrooms, includes a basement suite, and is zoned as a Bed and Breakfast. The greenhouse measures an impressive 3,000 square feet, and there are five animal paddocks, a horse arena, a hay barn, an office, a small storefront, a relaxing lounge, a pole barn, and a steel Quonset. With zoning already in place to build a second home, ‘Utopia Micro-Farming’ comes with numerous options to continue to grow and evolve. Move in and enjoy over 50 mature blueberry bushes consisting of Duke, Elliot, and Rika varieties. As a bonus, the high bidder will also gain a John Deere yard-tractor, as well as a large selection of farm accessories, shop tools, and building supplies.

Advertised as the best glampground in BC, ‘Utopia Micro-Farming’ comes complete with 5 x 6-meter and 5 x 7-meter Avalon Bell Tents. With unique furniture and bohemian décor, everything is in place to provide the ultimate glamping experience. The demand for agritourism continues to trend upwards and this utopian spot will receive significant revenue from the full 2024 summer calendar.

The proximity to Kalamalka Lake allows for relaxing beach days with the family, or even just a quick trip for a picnic lunch. Famous for its gorgeous turquoise-green waters, which are known to change throughout the year, Kalamalka Lake is situated just south of Vernon, a renowned Canadian tourist destination. Known to the locals as Kal Lake, tourists flock from all over the world to experience the beauty the Okanagan Valley has to offer. With numerous boat launches, this gem is popular with all water sport enthusiasts. In the colder winter months, the new owner can frequent one of the local ski hills for some outdoor fun.
