Riverbend is located in an ideal area as there are several orchards in close proximity. This property would be an ideal purchase to add to your current aggregation to secure crop, land and water. Riverbend is an orchard for serious consideration.

The orchard boasts healthy fruit trees which have always been cared for and maintained to a very high standard to ensure premium quality fruit for the consumer and the best financial return back to the grower.
All plant and equipment is in good working condition and is well maintained. The Riverbend home is an added bonus.
The orchard is a credit to the owners as they are extremely good operators with a well presented and maintained business.

Our Riverbend vendors are motivated to sell as retirement is calling and if an ideal offer is made prior to the E.O.I cut-off date we will go to contract prior to this date.
