Buying an avocado grove can be a fun and profitable endeavor. This site will help you figure out what to look for in an avocado farm and how to choose one that will work for you. I am located in San Diego, California, and there are many avocado farms in my area. This is a great climate for growing avocados, and the beautiful hillsides of San Diego, Riverside and even north into Santa Barbara areas are some of the best avocado growing areas in the world.
But where avocados like to grow, people like to live-- so our farms tend to be under 50 acres, with the vast majority of farms for sale or in production about 2-15 acres. This is a good size whether you are just starting out, or an old pro looking to show a substantial farming income. Most farms in these popular areas have a "highest and best" use as a home site. Since there are far more people buying homes than farms, it stands to reason that the farming aspect of any property needs to be investigated. There are many ways to assess the value of a parcel as a building site or with an existing home, and valuing farmland is another thing altogether. So to figure out whether or not a specific lot or farm is right for you, visit my page Evaluating a Farm.
So, when you are looking at a farm for sale, how do you figure this all out? Well, that's a good question! My name is Jill Pettigrew, and I have owned avocado farms for 20 years, and I am a real estate agent. 760/468-1144 Don't trust your purchase of a farm to just any one.
So I am in a unique postition to help you find and buy a nice farm. I am going to give you a nice check list for evaluating a farm, and, of course, you can call me at any time if you have problems or questions.
