Seeking Purchase or Lease 4 to 10 acres in Clackamas County for Nursery Crops in ground and container


?

Land Seeker Description

I am seeking land for primarily container growing and eventual expansion into shrubs and trees in ground. Wholesale business is the plan. Seek to lease to own ideally. I have substantial sales experience at WELL established bare root and container tree nurseries selling internationally. Seeking to initially 1, 3, 5 gallon nursery stock and then step up top larger. Goal is to be a player on the national market.


What features of the property are essential?

Water, hoop houses or space to build or rent for production. Equipment for container production is ideal.


Describe your farming experience

4 + years nursery stock sales experience at established nurseries in Gresham. I know basic sequence and requirements of nursery stock production and expected results for sale. I am 56 and will hire staff to help with production. I seek guidance and I will consider a partnership.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Start or expand nursery for sales into eastern united states of nursery crops such as shrubs and perennials. One year production and following years begin sales and continue production. I have other income so this does not need to produce income for first few years. Just sell and reinvest in business.


What are your long term goals

I plan to establish a wholesale nursery of container and B&B nursery stock for sale nationally. I have sales contacts in the eastern united states. I am seeking a partnership in a business. I have cash to invest and ready to commit much time. Goal is to have 5 acres in production within 2 years and / or learning and invested in an existing nursery to grow.

Not needed. I live in Multnomah county.
