Farming & Agriculture

Truck harvesting crop

The District of Coldstream is a diverse mix of urban and rural areas. Farming activities comprise a large portion of land use in the community with over 65% of the land base contained within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). Living in the country is an enticing factor for people looking to enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with rural life. However, new rural residents might not understand what farming activities can occur in an agricultural community, and farmers might not understand how these new residents perceive the rural lifestyle.
