When people are looking to live in a gorgeous area surrounded by mountains and also where there are plenty of blueberry farms, large farms of other sorts, rural residential properties, and even several horse/equestrian properties, then people think of Abbotsford.


Truly it is a wonderful place to live. Many people do think of Vancouver, but it is so densely populated, so it is refreshing to get away from the overload of all the hustle and bustle that exists in Vancouver on a daily basis. That is why many people choose to own blueberry farms, bare farmland, and various other types of commercial farms with or without homes on the property in the Abbotsford area.
