The Central Florida Organic Blueberry Farm is a 60 ± acre farm in south Lake County. This operation is turn-key with infrastructure in place for an easy transition in ownership. This farm currently has 44 ± acres in Organic Production. Varieties for this acreage include Arcadia, Avanti, Chickadee, Emerald, Kestrel, and Spring High. Of the acreage currently in production, 11 ± acres are being converted to organic and will be ready to certify in 2023.
This is a great opportunity for a grower or investor to hop into what is a turn-key organic operation with the bulk of the groundwork already completed by the current owners. Plants are irrigated via drip with overhead wobblers for frost and freeze protection. In previous years this farm has had quite the following from people across Central Florida wanting an Agritourism experience for U-picking. This is something that could be carried forward by a new owner if desired. The farm has been meticulously maintained and well-kept making for a quaint location for families to spend the day. This farm is only 50 minutes to Orlando, 40 minutes to Lakeland, and 20 minutes from the heart of the growing town of Clermont.
For an additional $350,000
There is an additional 45+/- contiguous acres available that would make a practical addition to the farmable acreage. This adjoining parcel has an 1100 square foot log home that was built in 2005 and would make an excellent place for a farm manager or caretaker to live. The home is situated on a small, one-acre pond and provides an excellent view of the farming operation. This contiguous parcel can add recreational value to the property as well for an individual that wishes to have a getaway alongside their farm. Deer and turkey both are very common in this area. There is also a pump and well on this additional acreage that could be repurposed to help irrigate the Blueberry acreage next door.
