Hood River

Description

Available for lease: 6 acre block of honeycrisp apples, lease it out right for 75% of net return or we provide the capital and your cut is 25%. Another option is payment per acre to manage- you provide the labor and we provide the direction and expertise on how to grow the fruit. Production this past season was 256 bins, average net return has been about $400 to $500 a bin. A bin is usually about 850 lb. Looking for motivated individual or couple willing and able to manage 3 to 4 pruners, 4 to 5 pickers, spray about 10 times per season ( organic or conventional, it still has to be sprayed) and truck the fruit to the packing house. This is part time work, but it needs to be done when the trees require it- the weather is your boss.
