Event Details

Join us at Big Rock Ranch in Buffalo Creek (near 100 Mile House), BC for a farm tour, potluck social, and discussion on farming on leased land!

Come get inspired and learn about the incredible farming that can be done on leased land! Farmers Robin and Johan have built up a hugely productive farm in the few years they been leasing this land, and we are lucky to be able to spend the day learning on-site about their experiences building the farm and business! They focus heavily on season extension in an area that gets frost almost every month of the year, and still manage to produce vegetables weeks ahead of other growers in the region. Inspiring!

We will tour the farm, enjoy a potluck lunch, and take a dive into the steps to building a successful farm on leased land. We will explore what farming on leased land is like and learn about how the B.C. Land Matching Program can help you find the perfect piece of land for you to build your dream farm business – or the perfect farmer for your land. Our new Central & Northern B.C. Land Matcher, Jolene, will share information and answer questions about land matching and how leasing land works. Both farmers seeking land and farmland owners thinking about leasing land are encouraged to attend – as well as anyone who loves food, farming, and getting out onto the land!
