Turnkey Organic growing operation
Includes all tools, equipment, lighted seed starting racks, growing pots and a 2+ year supply of organic seeds. Located in beautiful NW Montana in the community of Bigfork. This growing operation is currently run as a cooperative and is feeding 25 families. People literally work for food. We operate as a teaching organization with hands on programs on all aspects of organic growing. The center piece of this garden is a 51’ passive solar geodedic dome greenhouse by Growing Spaces out of Pagossa Springs CO. This building allows us to grow throughout the winter months due to the many thermal features of this unique greenhouse. The garden includes a 90+’ cold frame with raised beds’ a wall of cooling fans, and is plummed for gas if winter growing is desired. The exterior garden is all raised beds and includes over 1000 linear feet of raised beds. There is a huge poured concrete root cellar to harvest veggies stored for use throughout the winter.
There is a fruit orchard as well as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, ornamental annual and perennial flower beds. If you are interested in growing your own organic food, want to include friends and/or a farm to market operation this is the best place in NW Montana.
This 20 acre parcel has in addition to the organic growing operation, two 250 amp electrical services, a 25 gpm well, a long, winding, 20’ wide, gently sloping driveway to the top of the lot. This drive accommodates 50’ motor coach traffic with ease. There is a 250 amp electrical service, well water, and a 50 amp RV plug at the building site.
