The ca. 600 acre property is just 90 minutes away from Montreal; and although it is zoned for farming, it would be possible to operate other business ventures on the property. Some examples of what might be appropriate include: tourism (camping, snowmobiling, and hunting), agricultural production, warehousing, and distribution. Even though the bulk of the acreage cannot be used for anything other than agricultural, some of the road frontage land can be subdivided off and used as building lots.

The property is in a good strategic location for developing a venture because

• It is located in a predominantly agricultural area so networking and support for a new farmer is readily available

• It is near educational and research centres

• Local food sources keeps the cost of living down and the quality of life up

• Montreal is just 90 minutes by car giving access to important markets as well as international flights

• It is located minutes from the US border for easy access to US markets and to the US State of Vermont

The true country charm of Canada’s predominantly French-speaking Province of Quebec can be found in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. The property is located within the township of Potton. Potton spans 250 square kilometres, and includes the quaint hamlets of Knowlton Landing, Vale Perkins, Highwater, and Dunkin.

The Potton Township has over 20 nationalities represented in its population of just over 9,200. The cultural melange has created a region that is vibrant and interesting. There are many antique dealers and theatres, along with thriving artisan communities both visual and culinary, that continue to be inspired by Eastern Townships’ beauty and the bountiful harvest the area’s farms provide.

The region nearby the farm becomes increasingly popular due to the proximity to one of the world class ski and golf resorts in the neighbourhood and to Montreal.

The Eastern Townships share mountain ranges with the states of New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. For the most part, the terrain is hilly and wooded, so it is spectacular in the autumn, breathtaking in the winter’s snow, and positively pastoral in the summer.

Old churches are prevalent in Quebec, and are often built at the highest point of land which creates a delightful, old European feel to the landscape, as does the predominance of heritage architecture.

Quaint inns, fabulous Quebecois cuisine, a large number of wineries, and numerous festivals including a five-day celebration of chocolate, draw many weekenders away from nearby Montreal to experience some joie de vivre in this enchanting and peaceful place.




This property has a ca 2,150 square foot, 3 bedroom cottage-style bungalow and offers you miles of privacy, while offering you the prospect of using the land and its facilities for your own enterprise. The bungalow has a rustic, hunting-lodge feel with its wood panelled walls and large eat-in kitchen. The two bedrooms, living room and eat-in kitchen is wonderfully cosy, and the large picture-frame windows offer a view of the wide open span of land that seems to reach right up to the horizon.

The large ca. 20 x 40 metre hangar-style barn with roll down door provides a huge sealed and dry space; currently it is being used to house numerous pieces of farm equipment – all of which will be for sale with the property.

Lifestyle property


With its large open covered front porch overlooking the wide-open, private, and pristine farmland, this property has an expansive, and romantic old homestead feel that one can rarely find just 90 minutes from the international city of Montreal.

Although the home was built in 1920, you could say that it is 28 years old; the reason being that it has had the following extensive upgrades completed: a new electrical panel, chimney liner, oven, water supply to the house, shower enclosure in the bathroom, and new downspouts off the roof.

Still, this home’s hearth is its heat – with a wood insert helping service the main heating for the home along with electric radiators as support, and a wood-fired cooking stove in the kitchen.

Due to its location, this homestead is on a dug well and a septic system. The well is 5 metres deep with stone walls, and does offer up excellent drinking water which still passes with flying colours on a regular basis. In the past, the well was enough to water 80 head of cattle

There are some outbuildings on the property that are in reasonable shape, and could be used for storage or warehousing. A tenant currently resides in the house and oversees the care of the property.
