Landowner Listing 30087
300 Asian Pear tree orchard in need of a manager. The Asian pears trees were planted about 20 years ago and managed until Dec 2016. We are NOT looking for an employee but are looking for someone to lease or participate in profit sharing venture. We are offering the orchard, approx. 3-4 acres = 300 trees, to someone with experience or education in orchard management - pruning, spraying, culling, harvesting and marketing. This would be a good opportunity for someone just out of agricultural school, someone hoping to get into cider making or making the farmer's market rounds.
There are another 4-5 acres available for new trees or vegetables. The 8 acres is enclosed with electric deer fence and there are irrigation drip lines in place. We are looking for someone to commit to this as it will require purchasing some equipment that we don't have. Use of our tractors would be negotiable. We could possibly provide a living space on site.
Reason for Offering Farm: We work full time at other jobs and are unskilled at orchard management.
