Wow I just can't imagine who would be lucky enough to get this farm. I love Vero Beach and the old Florida vibe.

Quite a collection of trees for sure, that's not typical.

Yes one of my many many many faults.  Thankfully Iíve never been called a Misogynist, FYI.

The house is 2500í
I think Chris was referring to the bizarre comments and use of  :)'s by "kar1ma3."  (?)

I spoke with the Demeter USA people about a couple of concerns I had that I felt might keep us from getting our Biodynamic Certification.  They said we should qualify and my concerns will not prevent certification.  Iím working on the application now and should file next week.  They say they can have everything verified within 12 weeks.  Having the USDA organic certification will speed things up as you must satisfy all usda organic system qualifications as a basis for Biodynamic Certification.  I thought we might be the first in Florida but there is a farm in Homestead that got it recently. Hopefully we will be the 2nd and I believe we will be the first Rare Tropical Fruit Farm to become Demeter USA certified.  All the records from seed to fruit is almost overwhelming, tropical fruit with provenance.

We are looking for someone that understands regenerative farming with the capabilities to bring this place into its next management phase of full blown production.   Iím not sure if we are able to do that, for those reasons we are looking for those people.  Iím kinda particular to who I give tours to.  Unless someone is 100 percent committed to regenerative agriculture Iím not remotely interested in showing.  Iíve been focusing on rare herbs and exotic tropical for the last six months and itís starting to look more like a garden.






I imagine someone could create a modest revenue stream on Etsy or bananza or eBay with all the different plants like rhizomes from heliconia and edible ginger flowers like etlingera plus cut flowers and  exotic herbs like Kratom, psychotria sp.íí, seeds from rare cycads and fruit tree seeds. 


And the division of hundreds of expensive tropical house plants that thrive outside here.

Unfortunately or maybe fortunate the centerpiece of our  regenerative farming system is the uncut orchard floor.  Floridians donít understand this but we could not get certified Biodynamic without this crucial
insectaria but also itís crucial for the soil health in our system.   Rather than inspire it has had the opposite effect on neighbors whoíve taken to clearing everything, mowing the forest floor in the wild areas then burning it for what is days at a time.  Oh well at least the winds blow towards them.

Isn't controlled burning necessary and beneficial with pine forests?

Isn't controlled burning necessary and beneficial with pine forests?
i didnít quite write that out intelligibly.  Since this is a particularly close in expensive area it was all done on a heavily forested lot to gain ag exemption. Yes controlled burns in a forest can be beneficial,  this is clear cutting healthy old growth oak and pine trees. Driving large trucks on future growing area and dragging the trees to said pile, Removing any and all understory vegetation in remaining woods, manually raking the still standing forest floor then burning the debris in one huge pile on a portion of the clear cut area.  He also plants rows of 25 gal. mangos above ground in 2í deep compost (basic city woody compost), fertilizes gets phenomenal growth of six flushes per year then every time wind blows he has to stake them.  They all end up on there sides and have now been pruned heavily  and have multiple stakes with ropes, the type you would see on an antennae holding them in place.  He also uses glysophate  on the compost beneath the trees he adds compost of more than 6Ē every couple months.  The trees are now smaller than when he started with obvious signs of glysophate damage.  I can only assume he is doing this for my entertainment since cleared the area between our properties so I can see how itís done.  All Keitts.  The sad part is he wanted to get a tax deduction for farm.  If he had asked me I would have explained he could have strategically cleared weed trees planted in random areas throughout his property, left his wild areas and claimed them for Organic Certification and had all his property tax exempt and end up with about the same amount of growing area that was clearcut if not more.  Because he clear cut he will be disqualified from Organic Certification. And can only write off the two acres he clear cut.  Oh well itís his right.  Maybe heís onto something.

I am much more oriented towards "traditional" methods and happily use glyphosate, fertilizers, etc.  However I completely respect what you are going for and wish you the best.

Perhaps you could create a drone flyby video and post on youtube to show off?  :)
