1,500-Acre Dairy Property in DeSoto Sells for $5.3 Million

Jeff Cusson of SVN | Saunders Real Estate Represented the Buyer in the Transaction

LAKELAND, FL, Sept. 28, 2018 — SVN | Saunders Real Estate (SVNSRE) brokered the purchase this week of a 1,500 acre dairy farm for $5.3 million.

The farm, located in DeSoto County outside of Arcadia, was sold by Brighton Dairies to a major citrus grower. The buyer plans to convert the farm to a citrus grove.

Jeff Cusson, a SVNSRE agent located in the firm’s Vero Beach office, represented the buyer in the transaction.

“It was an enjoyable process to help our buyer locate an ideal property with virgin ground, good sources of water and fertile soils to plant their latest citrus holdings,” Cusson said. “With such a challenging environment facing the citrus industry, only the most productive and efficient groves can compete. I really enjoy using my 24 years of experience working in the citrus industry, along with the tools and experience from Saunders, to help my friends locate those properties that will provide the greatest opportunities for success.”

The seller was represented by Trevor Williams of Crosby & Associates, Inc.
