The readymade area has a rich history https://www.readymadecommunity.com

Readymade Facebook page :

There were many different approaches to make it easier for settlers in the early 20th century. One way was the Readymade approach – having everything ready for a farmer before they arrived including the house and barn.

The Canadian Pacific Railway had several different versions of standard house and standard barn patterns. They introduced the idea of readymade farms to the Lethbridge area in 1912.

“WILL BE SEVENTEEN READY – MADES HERE

J.L. Manwaring, secretary of the Board of Trade, this afternoon received a telegram from the National Resources Department of the C.P.R., at Calgary, to the effect that, following the transfer of the A.R. & I. lands to the Department of Natural Resources of the C.P.R., announcement was made this morning by Mr. J.S. Dennis, assistant to the President, that the Department will extend to the Lethbridge district the important work of ready-made farms now being carried on elsewhere. They will establish on the irrigated lands east of Lethbridge, immediately, seventeen ready made farms of one hundred and sixty acres each, upon which buildings and improvements will be placed this year, the farms to be colonized early next Spring.” (9 May 1912 Lethbridge Herald)

The CPR worried that the new farmers would not be able to make a go of it so they received not only the land and ready-made buildings, but there were also animals (horses and livestock) as well as seed and feed in place on the farms. Farmers were able to purchase the farms with long-term, low-interest loans. The CPR also wanted to ensure that the farmers learned the skills they would need to make the farms successful so there was a company farm to provide aid to the new farmers.

“In addition to the farms on the Coaldale Colony which were intended for sale, the CPR retained four sections of land for use as a company farm to grow hay for shipment to the CPR lumber camps in British Columbia. The buildings on the farm included a bunk house for the men, barn, machine sheds and the farm house for the cook. The equipment on the farm included 8 rakes, 8 bull rakes, 2 over-shot stackers and 11 mowers. The manager was also expected to provide advice and assistance to the farmers who had purchased the readymade farms in the area” (Quenching the Prairie Thirst by John Gilpin)

This is how the Readymade area of southern Alberta received its name. When the community built a new community hall a few years ago they modeled the hall on a Readymade Barn.

We really enjoyed working with Ben. He was excited with us about our plans. He worked very hard for us and contacted us very quickly when something needed to be done. His understanding of the whole “system” was incredible. We wouldn’t have sold or bought without all his knowledge and help.
