Highly Productive Farmland
A farmer once said, “What you see depends on how you view the world.” To most people, this is just dirt. To a farmer, it has great potential.
Pacific Company Farmland – or as the locals call it, Pacific Tomato – is 3,211 total acres of highly-productive farmland, located just minutes from Myakka City in Manatee County, Florida.
As the name would imply, this land was formerly a large tomato operation and is currently leased for agronomic crops.
Of the total 3,211 acres, 87% of the acres are uplands (42% are irrigated cropland, 45% are non-irrigated uplands) and 13% are wetlands.
The fertile soil make-up is predominately Myakka fine sand with Waveland, Cassia, and Floridana fine sands plentiful in the spectrum of soils. When you add to this mix Florida’s great weather, including plenty of sunshine and adequate rain, it’s evident that Pacific Tomato is prime Florida agricultural land.
This area of Florida averages over 46 inches of rainfall each year. The acreage of Pacific Tomato has 14 permitted wells delivering enough water to meet the volume needs of an agricultural operation. Presently there are 10 active wells, ranging in size from 16” to 4,” along with 4 capped wells.
The Future Land Use designation on this productive property is primarily Agricultural Rural with the smaller portion being Residential that allows up to one dwelling unit per acre.
Finding a property this size with a central location such as this is unique. The property has one mile of road frontage on SR 70, which is a main commercial corridor that runs coast-to-coast in SW Central Florida. The location is just minutes to major north/south routes, such as I-75, US 27, and US 17.
In addition, there is 1/2 mile frontage on both Wauchula Road and Ogleby Creek Road. Great weather, fertile soils, and central location, makes this property prime farmland!
