This orchard is a direct farm-to-consumer enterprise with a fully-formulated business plan and structure. It offers a new owner a family-friendly, back-to-nature experience growing and selling several unique and heirloom varieties of fruit (Yes, on Colorado’s Front Range eastern slope!) It’s new and positioned to become the largest fruit grower on Colorado’s eastern slope. The acreage, equipment and retail barns, trees, fencing, two major water taps, antique tractor and two apple presses are the primary business assets that are included in the proposed sale. The orchard growth is 5 to 6 years old and is now producing.
This year, the orchard hopes to gross $140,000 with about $40,000 in expenses. Increasing yields should help revenues grow quickly over time. By 2024, annual yield may be as much as 20,000 bushels per year and annual sales could exceed $1,000,000. This is a unique opportunity for early investment in what could be decades worth of harvests!
Seller making life changes
Seller will be available to train and assist new owner as needed. There is a full-time key employee who is also available for the transition. The seller is not leaving the area, so will be on the scene long-term.
Two buildings on the site are a 768 sq. ft. country store and 1,920 sq. ft. equipment storage barn. The 1,800 trees are fenced in by a 7.5 ft. high “game” fence. There’s an antique truck for wagon pulls and two cider presses for customers to use.
There is almost no competition on Colorado eastern slope. This is a one-of-a-kind property in a very nice location.
