New Land Opportunity in Siskiyou County!

Siskiyou #2037
20 acre property for purchase in Grenada. This highly productive certified organic farm is located in the heart of the Shasta Valley. The acreage is almost flat, with a slight slope rising from east to west. It is fenced and there are plantings of windbreak trees or lilac hedges on all boundaries. Nine acres are planted to orchard w/ approx. 2000 trees, 90% at production age. The majority are peaches, with also nectarines, cherries, plums, apricots, apples and pears. Remaining acreage is in cover crop or crop production (garlic, squash, raspberries, salad greens, u-pick pumpkins, lavender). Included in sale are all supplies, boxes, sprinklers, hoses, hand tools, aluminum hand line, drip and micro irrigation and organic production materials. Currently the farm accounts include retail stores, farmers’ markets, on-farm sales, and some wholesale accounts. All markets could be expanded and new markets tapped, i.e. restaurants, csa, schools. The farm-community interface would benefit from more on-farm events, educational opportunities, and celebrations. Farm stay or other agri-tourism programs could be created. The farm is ripe for what’s next. Login for more information.
