Mr. Beridon received your requests for information and returned data which you have compiled in an MicrosoftÂ® ExcelÂ® spreadsheet (see document template). He also said, â€œWe grow sod and trees at Jeemp Farms. We sell the sod mainly to home builders in the area, although we sell to some individuals who are purchasing square footages to re-sod their yard. Many home builders will purchase to sod an entire subdivision. They then may come back to us to purchase trees for the yards. It really is a package deal. For builders like that, we are a one-stop-shop. In most cases, however, we sell the trees to orchards and some individuals. The purchaser is responsible for all shipping costs related to their product.
â€œOur production process is different for each product. For sod, we plant the seed, irrigate, cut, and roll the sod and then transport it. For the trees, we plant the root stock, graft the tree, water until a particular maturity and then dig it up and sell it. We inspect the plants as needed to make sure we are producing a quality product that is disease-free.
â€œWe have delayed purchasing some machinery that reduces time for the planting of the trees because it is a large up-front cost and we donâ€™t want to have a huge outlay of cash if our profits keep going downâ€.
â€œThe grass does not require as much irrigation as the trees, as it is at a lower elevation than the tree acres and is closer to the creek; it gets a lot of the run offâ€.
â€œHistorically, we have always been able to sell everything we produce. Hopefully, that will continue since Houston is expanding rapidlyâ€.
