For sale or lease: 1 acre in The Dalles

Description

Imagine working with plants, listening to whatever music you want all day, and taking off when you feel like it for a bike ride or to go windsurfing or kiting. Bring your dog to work! Plus you can have three months in the winter off to travel or ski. We are selling our business and this great lifestyle.

EverSummer Gardens grows the best basil in the northwest. We have a great reputation, a solid clientele of 22 large grocery stores, and an easy distribution network. Everything is grown in a completely hydroponic greenhouse.

The greenhouse is 96ftx30ft, super solid and engineered to withstand 100mph winds and 30 lb snow load. Inside we have everything you need to grow, including reservoirs, trays, lights, etc. Currently it is clean and empty and ready to be filled with your plants in the spring.

We have been doing this for 12 years and are ready for a change. There is unlimited potential for growth. We are certified organic.

This setup would work well for growing other kinds of herbs if you prefer.
