The best place In Washington for orchards is right here! This is currently a pivot irrigated farm in the central Columbia Basin with plenty of water. Irrigation is from the USBR through QCBID and is durable water (not interruptible). Slopes to the south and SE with great air flow from SW along the Saddle Mountains. This property has 2 farm units which can be sold independently or together. Farm Unit 92 has 129 acres and Farm Unit 93 has 149 acres.
FU 92 has approximately 22 acres of apples (Granny Smith) on the west side and no buildings. County roads front 2 sides. FU 93 has been short platted to remove 3 corners with individual homes and/or buildings. There is a 'monitor-styled barn' home on this parcel, and a 60'x120' steel hay barn. The home is partially completed and could easily be converted to H2A housing for up to 80+/- workers (per one builder).
Current cropping plan has been Timothy hay and Alfalfa. Land is easily rentable for row crops; however, highest value is for conversion to permanent plantings. This could easily be converted to organic (3-yr process) if going to permanent crop.
From Royal City, go west 2 miles, south on Road I 1/2 mile; property is on the right. Land sits between Roads I and Road J and fronts Road 14 SW on the N side
