Homesteaders here is your chance to own a once in a lifetime sustainable farm, steeped in history from the mid 1800s! Current owners are only the 2nd family to live and work on this secluded property. This farm is 142.03 acres tucked away from civilization in a horseshoe bend of the Snake River. Wide open skies and great views of the nearby mountains.
Raise numerous crops with no worries about running short of water or paying for water rights. The State Certified rights were Grandfathered in from the mid 1800s and allow for 4 acre feet of water for each acre watered during the season. Three wells on the home site.
Elevation is 2100 ft. Mild winters, extended growing season, abundant water, isolation, level sandy soil, and extremely low risk area for natural disasters all make this a highly desirable location to homestead. This would be an ideal location to incorporate wind and solar power.
This farm has a long standing history of good land stewardship. Each section is allowed to go fallow on a regular basis. Cover crops, low till, and integrated pest management systems insure the quality and health of the soil. This farm has been primarily an alfalfa hay farm for the past 14 years. Premium quality and in high demand. In the 2019 season this farm produced a bumper crop of premium quality produce; corn, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, lettuce, onions, eggplants, beans, peas, potatoes, beets, pumpkins, squash, zucchini, cantaloupe, honeydew, and a variety of watermelons. In addition there was barley and industrial hemp.
The property is located on a dead end road and owners are the only full time residents. It has over a quarter mile of private riverfront. Lots of recreational opportunities. The farm qualifies for two LOP tags. In 2018 owners harvested two young cow elk on the farm. There is a healthy population of deer, turkeys, pheasants, geese, and ducks. Year round fishing.
The farm has a well maintained 3 bedroom, 2 bath manufactured home. A 29 x 55 ft insulated shop, with heat and air, two storage sheds, a fenced garden area, new lawn, and five mature fruit trees: Honeycrisp apple, MacIntosh apple, Asian pear, plum, and apricot.
