But you had better do it quickly. A property as special as this in California is unparalleled.
My friends will tell you that family stories, heritage, and legacies are topics that I often share. This heritage farm has an amazing story ready to be passed on to the next owner of the Bar M. This lovely 163 acre parcel is a package like none other. With the rolling hills, the beautiful meadows, the heritage oaks, and the amazing water resources it would be a fabulous bargain. But add to the package an amazing natural well that at last test pumped 60 gallons of fresh water per minute (that is a bunch of water folks) and access to four miners inches of NID irrigation water… those of you who ever raised a farm animal or crop KNOW that this much available water makes for a happy farmer.
The love story with this family farm began back in the great Depression in the mid west. The young man who would one day grow to be the first owner of this farm, watched as his family was made homeless by the times. He vowed that he would find great land someday and provide for HIS family so that they never had to be in that position again. Coming to California as a young carpenter, he found himself in a position to purchase the land. Not far for the children to walk to the little country school house (only about two miles!) he settled with his wife, and then two older children, on the farm that is now the Bar M Ranch.
Building a little home, and digging a well was just the beginnings. He nurtured dairy cattle and delivered milk clear down to Yuba City every morning. He and his kids grew greens for the local grocery stores and restaurants, provided pork and eggs when he could, and made a success of his life as a carpenter, miner and stone mason. The story is long and has many side bars. Let us tell you those another time.
In mean time those children, grew up here in Nevada County, were educated and had families of their own. Several moved away. One family has been here now is three generations from our senior farmer. They have been successful in the schools and business of Nevada County since the 50’s.
Now it is time to pass the torch. Lets meet to see this amazing ranch very soon. Priced to be affordable for a farm family at $785,000, it could be yours today. Call Deb St John, and let the adventure begin!
