Auction Items For Sale
Beaver County is well known for its high-quality agricultural land. This ‘Holden Trio’ is no exception to the rule. With the absentee owner renting out the Parcels, the ground is now seeking a new owner. The land is leased for 2021, with the new purchaser taking possession after the 2021 crop is off.
Parcel 1 is located 7 miles due north of Holden, Alberta and 13 miles southwest of Vegreville. The quarter is 151 acres in total, with a little over 120 acres under cultivation. The Starting Bid takes into account the acreage carved out as well as the non-arable acres. If you base the price on just cultivated acres, you still are below $3,000 an acre at the Starting Bid; prices from 2015 in 2021. Who says living in the past is not a good idea?
Parcel 2 is a full quarter located 3 miles east of Parcel 1, 12 miles southwest of Vegreville and 7 miles northeast of Holden. Over the past two decades, the average seeded acres for the Parcel have been approximately 140 acres. With three of the last five years being inordinately wet, Parcel 2 has been stressed in parts like many other quarters. Wet years breed wet years, and the quarter is currently ready to be seeded aggressively, hoping for more seasonal weather in the coming years. This quarter will produce when asked of it. At a Starting Bid of only $2,300 per acre, the quarter is priced to sell. The Starting Bid is a fraction of what other quarters have sold for nearby.
Parcel 3 is 79 acres located on paved highway 626, just 16 miles south of Mundare and 10 miles north of Holden. The ideal set-up for a large estate or hobby farm. The South-East corner of the Parcel offers up a secluded building spot with mature trees. The property includes a 30’ x 40’ fabric building on a foundation of rail ties. A portion of the Parcel was chem fallowed in 2020. With a Starting Bid well under the price of a lot in town, enjoy these 79 acres with your family in the country. The four distinct fields carved out on the Parcel make it ideal for a diverse intensive agriculture operation.
