Tampa, FL, March 13, 2020 – Tampa-based land broker J. Michael Strahan MAB, ALC, CCIM of Eshenbaugh Land Company, represented the Seller, Jones Potato Farm, Inc. on the sale of an 820-acre farm and ranch at 38955 Carlton Road, Parrish, Florida for $8,000,000.
The property sits in unincorporated Manatee County only 1,000 feet south of the Hillsborough/Manatee County line and features a two-story three bedroom/three bathroom 2,034 square-foot ranch house, 227-acres of irrigated crop land, 170-acres of productive citrus groves, and a combination of pasture and native Florida land.
“This is a unique farm with its combination of citrus groves, irrigated farmland, pastureland and wooded areas. The Seller is a steward of the land and runs a first-class farming operation. This was obvious when showing the property and it undoubtedly helped with the sale at the full asking price.” says Strahan.
The Buyer was The Mosaic Company, who will continue farming the property.
Bill Eshenbaugh, President of Eshenbaugh Land Company said, “I really appreciated this major closing in light of today’s economic environment and thrilled to have a big closing on Friday the 13th as well.”
