The larger parcel is 320 acres, but any site size lease is available. See buycropland.com for more details regarding the property.
I am selling my 320-acre ranch that has been in my family since the 1940s. Recently, the County of San Bernardino announced they are accepting applications to legally grow industrial hemp within the County. The 320-acre ranch has all three of the characteristics needed to grow hemp crop:
1) It is ideally situated in a zoning district that outright allows agricultural crops,
2) The property is secluded and away from any conflicting uses.
3) And has good water available.
I will accept any type of transaction including a lease, lease to own, owner financing at a reasonable interest rate with low down payment, or cash for those buyers that may already be active in the marijuana industry. Below is a little more detail on the ideally situated property for hemp crop.
The subject property is located at 24325 Sacred Pony Road in the unincorporated area of Barstow and is under the County of San Bernardino jurisdiction. Zoning is Resource Conservation with Agricultural crops being outright allowed without special permit and San Bernardino County is now taking applications for legal hemp crop. The total property contains 320 acres, according to San Bernardino County records (Tax Lot Number 0416-181-08-0000).
The property is located in a secluded unincorporated area approximately 20 miles east of the City of Barstow, and approximately 5 miles south of Interstate 40 at the northerly foothills of Ord Mountain. There is minimal development in the neighborhood providing excellent privacy and approximately 1/4th to 1/3rd of the ranch is hidden behind the Ord Mountain Foothills for ultimate seclusion; but can be accessed via a neighboring property’s gated entry to the east of the subject, or over a foothill saddle on the west side of the subject property (a rough road has been developed).
GOOD TOPOGRAPHY, TEMPERATURE AND ELEVATION FOR HEMP CROPS
The subject site shape is rectangular in shape and per topography maps, the elevation ranges between 3900 & 4400 feet. Approximately one-half to two-thirds of the site has relatively level topography. The remaining one-third of the site is foothills of the Ord Mountains. The drainage is good throughout most of the site toward the north and Camp Rock Road. Access to the subject site is good via Camp Rock Road, which is a well-groomed gravel road maintained by the County.
GOOD WATER AVAILABLE
On an adjacent to the east side of the subject property is the 20 feet deep Willis Well, originally dug by the Willis family in the early 1900s. A major water aquifer passes underground in the northwest section of the site. Subsequently, several water wells have been developed with depths to reach water reported at less than 100 feet. The Fischer Ranch, further downstream obtains significant good water for their cattle operation from the same underground aquifer.
FUTURE HIGHEST & BEST USE
Invest, use the property to grow hemp while the boom is happening, then get a return on your investment by selling the land as a mitigation to future development of projects such as wind, solar or residential. A Protocol Survey has been completed determining endangered species including Desert Tortoise habitat is present on the site. Bighorn sheep may be seen wintering on the foothills from time to time and there are other endangered and threatened plants and species that qualify the land as land mitigation. U.S. Fish & Wildlife and California Fish and Game have visited the property and agree the land is desirable for mitigation purposes. Further, if a buyer is willing to complete the necessary mitigation bank paperwork, the property could most likely qualify as a land mitigation bank and the buyer could sell mitigation credits once that process is completed. Some mitigation credits are selling at $15,000 plus per acre. In addition, there are ancient petroglyphs on rock outcroppings on the subject property that have ancient Native American significance. The Barstow Resource Area BLM Archaeologist, Sarah C. Cunkelman, has surveyed the adjacent site, which is now under nature conservancy. She reports that the petroglyphs may be up to 2,000 to 3,000 years old.
