A mere two and a half miles east of the overpass entrance into the town of Vegreville, Alberta, you will find 'The Long Mile Vegreville' abutting Highway 16, the Yellowhead Highway. With a grand total of over six thousand feet of highway frontage bordering the north perimeter of the Yellowhead, the two parcels combined make up an oversized mile.
The area was initially settled in the late 1800s by French-Canadian settlers immigrating from Kansas; the same US state known as the breadbasket of the United States. Need we say more about the quality of the farmland in the Vegreville area itself?
In addition to good soil, great crops also need water. With peak precipitation in June and July each year, this location checks the box. In total, an average of over 4 inches of rain falls during these two months – exactly when it is most advantageous in a 120-day growing season.
Parcel 1 consists of 307 acres, with a half-mile of highway frontage and a half-mile of CN rail trackage. The North quarter of the Parcel is that picture-perfect quarter that can be farmed corner to corner. Yet the Starting Bid for the two quarters that make up Parcel 1 is set at less than what single open quarters have sold for in the area. As for the South quarter of the Parcel, some buyers may consider subdividing off the 45 acres south of the trackage that contains a mature building site. The south quarter has a natural drainage run in the southeast portion that is well contained.
Parcel 2 is a subdivided parcel currently being carved out of the North half of Section 12. The existing owners who live and farm south of Highway 16, a divided highway, are re-aligning their farm operations to avoid traffic across the major highway. Parcel 2 offers up over a half-mile of highway frontage. This is prime farmland situated in one of Alberta's key agricultural producing regions.
If you're looking to invest in farmland situated on the doorstep of Vegreville and offering up both highway frontage and rail trackage, 'The Long Mile Vegreville' answers the call for Location, Location, Location.
