I've assumed the responsibility of my parent's orchard, but unlike them, I cannot set up shop at roadsides. I already have a full-time job and a family to take care of and educate.
At present, I have satsumas that need to be harvested, but I can also now pick the grapefruits, navels, mandarines and lemons.
If any of you here on the forum does a little side-line farm market type business, you might want to consider citrus, esp if you live furthur north than my home town of Cut Off. I imagine that the furthur north, the more it would be worth.
I did obtain some Louisiana Citrus boxes, because I was possibly going to do some local business with a grocery chain, but that fell thru. Well, the boxes costed more than I'd have liked to pay, so if I would need to part with the boxes, I'd want some of my investment back. Still if someone has their own crates, I wouldn't mind selling just the fruit.
Please be aware that I live very close to the coast and have seafood most of the year, so if you can do a little business with shrimp, I can make a few calls to get prices for you to make it worth the trip.
There are a few things that can't grow here, due to the heat.....fruits, vegs, herbs and game....therefore, let it be understood that I might not mind if someone wanted to buy a bunch of crates, I could barter for a portion of the boxes.
Please be aware that this is my families business and I"m only getting a share for deals and harvesting. Parents still own property.
