The end

I sold my propierties at a modest gain after having been a part time farmer for 15 years.

The Internal Return Rate of my investment and work was 22%. Production (mainly grapes) represented half of the final return. Agricultural subsidies and the capital gain contributed similarly to the other half.

I wish good luck to the people that will keep on with the beautiful orchads I grew during the last leg of those years.

  1. WOW! Thank you so much for sharing all this journey, your words are very revealing, it’s unfortunate that the industry made it this far. Would you think that the same thing can be said about the rest of the world? I don’t think almond plantations are slowing down in California… Are other stone fruits any better?
