A thriving complex of over I kilometer of 6’ tall winding hugels that create courtyards filled with permanent raised beds. The hugels are stocked with perennial and self-seeding annual plants. The hugels are sub-irrigated by surrounding ponds. Much of the courtyard has already been fenced and has additional irrigation installed for the hugels raised beds and gardens. The irrigation is primarily fed by the uppermost pond and features a back-up pump that draws water directly from the lower ponds.
The 3 acres of waterways surface feature seven distinct water bodies that can be individually regulated. The energized and crystal clear waters of the ponds vary in depth up to 16’ and are primed for a natural aquaculture system; they already host fish and crawdad populations. Each pond has a unique role in the system such as a fish kindergarten, a swimming hole, providing irrigation, wildlife habitat & turtle nursery, or growing garden mulch.
In addition the land features 25 acres of beautiful gentle accessible hillside rich in a variety of wildflowers and native plants as well as 25 acres of sloped fenced pastures with stunning views over Flathead Lake and the Mission Mountains and 25 acres of pristine wetlands that offer bird and wildlife habitat.
Possible enterprises: a market garden, a permaculture plant nursery, aquaculture farm, organic fowl farm, mushroom cultivation, educational workshops, honey production, on farm vegetable sales, seed business, u-pick farm, worm/ insect farm, home brewed fertilizers, and animal and fruit production.
