Scott's Place — Organic Farm for Sale
Virden, west of Brandon, Manitoba
For over 50 years our family has had the privilege of living on “Scott’s Place”. It has been a labour of love to develop the original 5 quarters plus rented land into an organic farm. It has been farmed organically for 40 years and has been certified for over 30 years. The home quarter of 159.24 acres is now for sale- time for someone else to enjoy country living at it’s finest. Approximately 6 km or 3.5 miles from Virden on a well maintained road, it is on a school bus route and is ideally located for convenient shopping, family and community services.
Included in the home quarter is 72 acres of native pasture, a wonderful place to explore the many species of plants and wildlife. There is also the two smaller fields adjacent to the farm yard of approximately 4 and 12 acres that can be used for calving or pasture land. The cropland is currently seeded to hay. Located in the farm yard is the barn with calving shelter and corrals, shop, Quonset and 3 steel granaries. The farm is serviced by two plentiful wells, one for the house and one for the barnyard.
