San Joaquin #5544


Up to 40 acres available for lease on Fay Island in San Joaquin Valley. Fay Island is a 80 acre island in the San Joaquin River delta, in California. It has around 40 acres of prime farmland that have been used for agriculture and a historic duck club in the past. The acreage is currently thickly covered with unmanaged vegetation and would have to be cleared before planting. The property could be a good option for vegetable growers. The island is only accessible by boat, so the tenant would need a way to access the island and ferry equipment and product across. There is agriculture happening on other islands in the area. The island floods seasonally, but there is a pump to move water off the island. There may be some water table depth and soil salinity issues to consider before planting.
