Blue Thumb Farms is selling a 14,000 square feet two-bay greenhouse, including 10,000 square feet of deep water culture ponds, operational space, a germination room, refrigerated storage, and a bathroom, for $800,000 USD. The greenhouse is situated on 7 acres of cleared land with an additional 7 wooded acres.
The facility was placed and designed with expansion in mind, including a three-phase power capacity for additional greenhouses. The deep water culture ponds are ready to be re-filled and have water quality maintained by existing heat pumps, an ozonation system, and automatic filtration/backwash. The greenhouse has automatic environmental controls to allow for sidewall and roof ventilation or propane heating according to setpoints. There are 96 HPS grow lights that can be operated in 8 sections by a timer, as well as a shade cloth to manage lighting. There are overrides for extreme wind or weather events to close the sidewall curtains and roof vents.
Although the greenhouse could be used for many purposes, owners are offering all remaining hydroponic equipment for a turnkey solution- just add water. Previously used for living herbs and whole head lettuces, the rafts, germination trays, stonewool, nutrients, equipment, and lighting is all available to start producing on day one of ownership. A temperature-controlled germination room allows for efficient year-round propagation before transplant into the greenhouse. A well-insulated and refrigerated 40-foot shipping container allows for temperature-controlled storage of cut and living herbs for delivery. The roll-up garage door and outdoor concrete pad facilitate easy loading/unloading of produce.
Located a short 30-minute drive to Raleigh, NC, and within close distance to major food distributors and major commerce interstates such as I-40 & I-95, this property is ideally situated to serve the Southeast.
Built-in 2017, this well-maintained facility is already functional and ready to get back into operation. Don’t let supply chain issues delay the start of your new business or your expansion; take advantage of this existing operation to start producing immediately.
