Recent Auction Details

The Florida Agricultural Portfolio offering is a unique opportunity to acquire large-scale agricultural landholdings with significant appreciation potential in one of the fastest-growing areas of the United States. The 9,900-acre collection of 11 parcels spans Indian River, St. Lucie and DeSoto Counties with contiguous tracts as large as 2,622 ± acres. They include a diversified portfolio of citrus groves, farms, and agricultural properties in warm, easily accessed locations. Many of these parcels are in a developmental path with significant upside. Those tracts with directly operated citrus crops benefit from a combination of short and long-term fruit contracts. The facilities are well maintained and include fixed assets such as barns, pumps, irrigation, and drainage systems. 

Established groves bring income through both leases and direct farming operations. Historically, the farmland parcels have been leased to a diversified mix of agricultural tenants. Land use optionality is limited only to the imagination: Solar/energy crops, hemp, specialty citrus crops, residential/ranchette development, water farming, conservation, bamboo, vegetable production, ornamental horticulture, carbon credits, recreational uses, plant-based proteins, and more.
