Rare find! This 1.23 acre property has Class 1 Soil providing the ultimate growing conditions. The zoning permits the on-site sale of on and off-farm products. Combined with the highway location, this is an outstanding property to grow and sell produce.
This property's soil is classified as Class 1. The best agricultural lands are rated Class 1 as they have the ideal climate and soil to grow the widest range of crops. Land within Class 1 is level or nearly level. The soils are deep, well-drained under natural conditions, or have good artificial water table control to hold moisture well. Productivity is easily maintained for a wide range of field crops. The rich soil, combined with the warm and long summers, ensure successful and bountiful produce.
Zoning of NU (Non-Urban) allows crops to be grown and sold within the property. Produce from other farms is also permitted to be sold from this land, because it is in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR).

Highway 97A is a significant transportation corridor, funnelling traffic into Southern BC. This property lies along the western side of the highway.
The ministry is developing a comprehensive transportation plan to identify and evaluate potential options to improve safety and traffic flow on the Highway 97A corridor through Enderby.

The Enderby Cliffs tower high above the Shuswap River. A trail winds its way to the summit on a well laid-out and maintained single track surface. The trail emerges from forest cover in several areas affording hikers sweeping vistas of the valley below before finally reaching the cliffs' top and the most impressive view. You can watch the soaring birds play on the updrafts created by the steep rock face.
The beautiful Mara Provincial Park is a popular day-use area for locals and travellers. The park has an inviting broad stretch of sandy beach and has excellent fishing, swimming, boating, canoeing, and picnicking.

The Shuswap River is the heart of many small North Okanagan communities known for its tube floating, canoeing, and kayaking. There are countless places to launch and exit, making the float a true ‘choose your own adventure.’
There are two golf courses in the area: Mabel Lake Golf & Country Club and Birchdale Golf Course.

Enderby and the Shuswap River's gentle waters have played a vital role in the history and growth of the North Okanagan as a critical transportation route for the Shuswap First Nations and the early European settlers. Near this river, the Spallumcheen tribe of the Shuswap Indians lived for hundreds of years, hunting and fishing along its banks. And it was just south of the present townsite that overlander Alexander Leslie Fortune pre-empted land in 1866, thus becoming the first white settler in the North Okanagan. Fortune’s place on the Shuswap River bend made an ideal stopping spot for steamboats and paddle wheelers from Kamloops shipping supplies to settlers in the Okanagan.
Enderby was named in 1887 after a Jean Ingelow poem, in which the villagers were saved from a rising tide of water by the chiming of church bells playing the tune The Bridges of Enderby. With the Shuswap and Okanagan Railroad's completion in 1892, the small town began to grow and prosper, with a flour mill, sawmill, and brickyard by 1895. The business district expanded accordingly, and the decision was made to incorporate the city in 1905.
The Shuswap River has retained its importance as a navigable river, but canoeists and kayakers have taken the place of steamboats. The river now links the small developed communities in the rural district, from Kingfisher in the east to Mara in the north, and the city of Enderby remains the centre of services for the rural area.
