It’s worth noting that part-time farmers and ranchers make up a significant portion of the agricultural population in BC, about 16% of the total number of farms, according to recent data compiled by Statistics Canada. Hobby farming is not new, and the share of hobby farming has increased over time, but it is not generally considered a viable source of substantial income. Fewer than 10% of hobby farmers report net income greater than $10,000 annually.

In Canada, however, 40% of hobby farmers do report positive cash flow. But, if your intent is not to supplement income, a hobby farm can be a strategic advantage in terms of tax deductions and estate planning. It can also be part of a long-range retirement plan. Let us help you identify your options.

We have over 50 years of cumulative real estate experience. We’ve represented buyers and sellers for a significant portion of the hobby farms that has been bought and sold in the BC real estate listings market. Many of the buyers and sellers we represent are not from BC – it’s quite often they’re from another province or territory in Canada. We’ve worked with many clients from the USA. We’ve also worked with  international clients from countries like Greece, Russia, China, Germany, Britain, Spain, Australia & more.

* Full Disclosure: There is one thing that distracts us from our full-time real estate careers – we founded and run a pretty amazing charity called the Scholarship Foundation Of The Pacific. Officially, “the Scholarship Foundation of the Pacific is a public foundation whose goal is to raise and steward funds and develop strategic partnerships to support post secondary educational opportunities to create future leaders in coastal communities.” In short, we raise enough funds to send one student from Haida Gwaii for 4 years of university every year.
