The Carcross/Tagish First Nation is expanding its farming enterprises.

At the beginning of August, the First Nation signed papers to purchase what some people know as the old Branigan farm. The sale is now complete, and the First Nation is talking about its plans.

“It’s a little over 150 acres of prime farmland,” said Andy Carvill, the chief of Carcross/Tagish.
