One of Australia’s largest vertically integrated Chrysanthemum producers is for sale. Situated amongst the rolling landscape in the Adelaide Hills between Mount Torrens and Birdwood, Blumberg Flowers presents investors and industry participants alike an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a fantastic business established in 1996, supplying the wholesale market across Australia with a year-round supply of Chrysanthemum flowers.
The strategic development of this dynamic business dedicated to quality flower production is self-evident upon inspection of the operation, with efficiency and productivity at the forefront delivering an unmatched product.
Grown independently and utilising the latest Dutch growing and processing techniques, each week a minimum of 37,000 cuttings are picked from the glasshouse and placed in cool storage in anticipation for planting. Peat imported from Scandinavia and the Netherlands are processed into cubes onsite and cuttings are then propagated.
A 10-12 week growing period involves careful monitoring of the crop, including regulation of day length, climate, nutrition, pest and diseases and crop support. The 10,000sqm greenhouse features individual bays which grow up to 15 different varieties of Chrysanthemums at individual stages to ensure efficiency and productivity. Each week two new bays are ready for harvest.
The crops are harvested with automatic cutting machines and the flowers are then placed onto a conveyor belt by operators and sent to the packing shed for processing. A fully automated processing machine imported from the Netherlands grades the stems, de-leafs, bunches and sleeves the flowers in readiness for cold storage until they are sent for delivery.
In addition to the flower operation, improvements include a five bedroom residence, formed internal roadways, dams and brand new fencing.
Irrigation water is supplied via surface and underground bore, filtered through a desalination plant with a substantial annual allocation.
Please contact Colliers International for further information. Interested parties are invited to submit non-binding offers in the prescribed form to purchase the property on or before Thursday 1 June at 2pm (AEST).
All enquiries are to be made via the agents. Inspections are strictly by appointment with the agents.
