State of the Art Packing House – 75 Truck Load Capacity Cooler – 100% Computerized Irrigation
TURN KEY! This 1200 ac highly productive produce growing, packing and shipping operating is now available for the discerning buyer/investor/grower. The farm is ideally located between the southern and northern markets to take advantage of the gap in the growing seasons, plus the freight differentials. With 100% of the fields under computerized irrigation, a wide variety of crops have been successfully grown; including cherry, grape and roma tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, squash, watermelons and cabbage.
The packing house is state of the art with the tomato line. Cooler capacity accommodates 75 truck loads of storage offering more than adequate space to store and effectively market the perishable products. Also on site are two watermelon sheds, a large equipment shed, plus work shop to support the operation and eliminate down time, when repairs are needed.
Since the majority of the produce is grown under plastic, the operation has 6 acres of greenhouses to grow on site the needed plants, so that timely transplanting can be done. To further support the expansive operation included are two labor camps that house 300 workers, 7 block houses for full time employees, plus two homes for managers. To further diversify the operation, 440 acres of the farm are dedicated to timber production, consisting of mostly mature pines. Some of this could be cleared for the addition of organic vegetable and fruit production.
The family has decided to offer this highly productive and profitable operations for sale, so they can focus on expanding their 14,000+ acres of citrus and timber in both Florida and South Carolina. With demand constantly expanding for American grown produce, this is an incredible turn key property!
