Barn and Nursery Space for Rent at Freshwater Farms Reserve

Barn and nursery space available for lease near Eureka. Between 1,800 sf to 12,000 sf. Two buildings and one hoop house offer enclosed or semi-enclosed agricultural space with lease ranges from 20-40 cents psf/month with a year-to-year fixed-term lease. Our preference is to lease the facilities together but we are open to leasing facilities/areas separately.
 
The barn is a total 8,400 sf (70’x120’) with a new roof and siding. There is approximately 5,760 sf of open space available in the main section of the barn. The barn also has four outer bays that are divided from the main section by sheer walls. Each of these areas is approximately 550 sf.  At least two of the bays will not likely be available as part of leased area. The floor of the main section of the barn is about half concrete and half compacted earth. The floors of the outer bays are concrete.

The fully enclosed nursery building is approximately 1,800 sf (30’x60’) with a slab floor and a new roof. The attached hoop house is approximately 1,800 sf (20’x90’). Along with the hoop house and nursery, there is approximately ¼ acre of cultivation area adjacent to the buildings. For the nursery facilities, preference will be given to operations with a component of native plant propagation. Not for retail use. Wholesale nursery operations are permitted.
 
All uses must be in alignment with NRLT's mission of conserving wild and working lands and compatible with the adjacent farm stand, row crop area and nearby trail that is open to the public generally during daylight hours. No cannabis inquiries please. Showings available through appointment only.

CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION. For additional questions call or email the landowner, Northcoast Regional Land Trust, at 707-822-2242 or d.ehresman@ncrlt.org
 
 
 

Wetland Restoration & Grass Identification

Join Northcoast Regional Land Trust's Projects & Stewardship Director Kerry McNamee on Sunday, July 9th from 10 a.m - noon for a walk through Freshwater Farms Reserve to learn about the native grass restoration project being undertaken at the pasture onsite. Discussion will include the opportunities and challenges of this type of restoration and how to create a balanced wild and working landscape. The group will also learn how to identify California native grasses and have an opportunity to help monitor the success of the project using vegetation transects. If there is time, we will also pull invasive grasses! 

Please park in the parking lot past the farm stand (on right hand side if going south). Walk will start from the parking lot and will tour the 8 acre high brackish marsh restoration area. Please wear closed toe shoes, and bring your gloves if you'd like to pull out those pesky invasives! Rain or shine - severe weather cancels. No RSVP necessary. FREE. Families are encouraged.
