For those just starting out, leasing is a great way to obtain access to land affordably, and with a relatively low level of commitment.


It’s clear Fraser Valley farmland is fertile and productive.  It can also be profitable for you as a new farmer or as someone looking to lease farmland. The key is that you plan how you’ll use your farmland and understand what you’ll grow.

Fraser Valley Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR)

The BC Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), established in 1973, consists of land zoned and protected for farming across the province – around 5% of BC’s total area.

The South Fraser region is home to a large portion of this ALR land. In Surrey alone, there are around 2,465 hectares of ALR land (or 27% of the reserve) available for farming now. Some has already been cultivated, making it even easier for new farmers to pick up and start farming.
