Description

Excellent opportunity to get into the business with a low-cost turn-key operation that will be ready for spring planting (or sooner).  Business operates with a long term lease of the growing space and has no rights to the larger property on which it is located.  This is a business sale -- not a land sale!

Selling all business assets necessary to operate the garden and business including over 3500 linear feet of cedar planks used for raised beds, irrigation equipment, movable plant supports, trellises and posts, seed starting supplies, many fluorescent and LED lights, garden tools, pest control equipment and supplies, harvesting tools and containers, tables, benches, cold frames (including 8x20 walk-in with propane heater) as well as thousands of dollars worth of hydroponic equipment and supplies for alternate hydroponic operation.

CSA member and business contact list available upon sale or lease.  One season of consulation included if requested.

Buy the equipment to use on your own land or start here.  Equipment sold as a lot and as is.
