Beautiful Acreage 11 km west of Delisle, less than 30 minutes from Saskatoon. The current owner previously operated a purebred horse business from this scenic 4th generation “Century Farm”. The most recent development for the property, with the assistance and guidance from the University of Saskatchewan, was to establish a multi-variety orchard. Business possibilities from the orchard are extensive, however could include a winery, distillery, commercial greenhouse, or possibly a market garden.
The 1,380 sq ft bungalow built in 1970 features a 3+1 bedroom, 3 bathroom layout. The main floor includes an open concept kitchen and dining room, leading to a large livingroom with south facing windows. The 3 main floor bedrooms on the north side of the house have convenient access to the 3 piece main bathroom. Adjacent to the large mudroom and completing the main floor is a 2 piece bathroom and the main floor laundry area.
The basement is partially finished to include a recreation room with wood burning fireplace, 4th bedroom, and 3 piece bathroom. The water filtration and distribution system for the yard and orchard is managed from the utility area in the basement.
Pride of ownership is on display in this beautifully landscaped and sheltered yard featuring over 700 irrigated pine trees, 200+ maple (approx 40 ready to tap), green ash, buffalo berry, lilac, and caraganas - a result of over 35 years of ongoing and extensive improvements to the yard. The yard includes a beautiful paving stone edged garden area, as well as over 300 - 24” x 30” and 24” x 24” patio blocks throughout the yard.
The 36ft x 50ft barn was completely renovated in 2008 and features 7 stall and an open loft area. The adjoining horse paddocks and livestock shelters are ideally set up for equine use (the owner previously kept race horses), however would be perfect for any number of other livestock ventures.
The 40ft x 60ft dirt floor quonset is currently used as a workshop, with 200 amp power, and space for equipment storage.
The custom built 20x40 greenhouse includes both ground level and raised planters, with irrigation throughout.
Pasture and Orchard:
The 3 pastures total over 50 acres and include a combination of wooden rail and wire fencing, and approx 35 steel pipe access gates throughout the 81 acres.
The 26 acre orchard is surrounded by 8ft high perimeter game fence. Approximately 50% of the 26 acre orchard established with sea buckthorn, sour cherry (SK Carmine Jewel and Cupid), apple, haskap, hazelnut, and many more. The remaining 13 acres are seeded grass and easily incorporated into the existing orchard.
The pasture and orchard are non-certified organic. (no chemical used on the land for the past 15 years, with the exception of the apple trees and the shelterbelts)
Thanks to the excellent quality Silty Clay Loam soil and natural drainage, the hayland and orchard are among the most productive in the province.
