San Mateo #5472
Located along San Mateo’s beautiful coast is acres of scenic and certified organic farmland. Currently, there are approximately 6 acres of planted blackberries on trellises, 5 acres of artichokes, and less than 1 acre each of rhubarb and kiwifruit, with the remaining farmed land rotated between strawberries, vegetables, and cover crops. Fields are fenced and located on both sides of Hwy 1. There is a long history of U-Pick operations on site. Irrigation of berries and row crops is by drip lines and movable sprinklers. There are buried water lines which can be supplied with water from two different pumps drawing from a reservoir and a dam. Movable pipes with overhead sprinklers can be connected to the buried lines at numerous risers along the pipeline. A 1,427 square foot barn is available for equipment/storage if desired. Adjacent, but not included in the lease, are pasture land, residential buildings, forested land abutting state park land, and beach.
