On September 30, 2015, TLC completed the transfer of 26 properties, including Turtle Valley Farm, to the Nature Conservancy of Canada for their continued stewardship. For more information please view the news release.

Turtle Valley is a small pastoral valley located near Chase, half-way between Kamloops and Salmon Arm, B.C. This valley is home to several agriculture operations, including Turtle Valley Farm.

Marc Theurillat donated three property titles (245 acres) that make up Turtle Valley Farm to The Land Conservancy. These parcels of land are diverse and encompass both agriculture land and natural habitat. There is a total of 40 acres of wetlands, 140 acres of forest and riparian area, 55 acres of pasture and hay and 5 acres of farm infrastructure (farmhouse, barn, granary, and potential area for vegetable/fruit production).

Currently, the land is used by a local farmer to graze cattle and sheep, as well as for hay production. For more information about Turtle Valley, see the Chase Chamber of Commerce
