Do you have control over the stream? Is it non seasonal? If yes then you can either dam/channel the stream into an underground Reservoir on your land and that will be your source for irrigating

Another is to get a well or borehole. Anyone that ll work.

After getting your water source right. You can purchase some irrigation kits and install.
