SJB Abundance Farms is a multi-dimensional farm and garden company that brings ornamental landscaping and food production together in a beautiful, interdependent harmony.
We recently moved from Naples, FL, and are in the process of restructuring to expand our range of offerings.
Our goal is to supply everything you need to turn your homeplace – large or small – into a place of abundance.
We create beautiful, yet practical landscapes designed to last with little upkeep for years, despite Florida’s harsh climate. Bromeliads, grown here at our nursery, are key to our landscapes.
Food production aspects will include fruit tree plantings and grow-box garden service.
SJB Abundance Farms is home to small herd of pedigreed Nigerian Dwarf Dairy goats that will soon be producing milk for artisan cheese. Kids will be available in the spring.
Looking for a part-time employee that will move to full time in several months.
Initially work will be mostly help with development of the farm and nursery, and then will move on-site and off-site work which will include goat dairy and cheese-making, nursery (mostly bromeliads), as well as garden and landscape installations and maintenance. There will be some grass mowing.
We are looking for someone interested in small-scale natural agriculture, that loves the land, outdoors and animals and will appreciate the experience. We want dedicated employees who will stay with us long-term and grow with the business. Pay will start above average for this type of work and increase as new skills are learned and responsibilities earned. Employee must be able to bwork efficiently and do satisfactory work without “the boss” present, and eventually be capable of taking on operation of the farm and cheesemaking facility during short periods. Work will vary a lot, but at times will require heavy lifting and sustained physical labor. $20 per hour, 90 day trial period.
If this sounds like a job you’d like to turn into a career, give us a call! Amanda 352-467-4478
Unique portfolio of plants
We specialize in rare and unique plants that together create a landscape that always looks good, regardless of frost and other challenges inherent in gardening in this area. They are also designed to be practical. No picky plants in our landscapes!
Bromeliads are our specialty, and our signature landscapes are centered around these colorful and easy to care for plants. We use large anchors such as palms as well as other plants to complement the bromeliads of your choosing.
Fruit planting and Permaculture beds – After years of experience in Golden Gate Estates, we have found a combination of fruit trees that thrives and produces well in a permaculture setting. Choose between many different fruit tree options such as citrus, banana, pineapple, and sugarcane. We can also mix in ornamental trees and plants as well!
COMING SOON: Vegetable Grow-boxes
Want to grow a garden but don't have time to care for it? Or, have you tried and it JUST WON'T GROW?! We have a solution for you: closed-system grow-box service. We will design a garden according to your needs and preferences, then set it up with our proprietary growing medium which is mineral-adjusted for the particular crop, as well as to produce the most nutritious produce. Each installation comes with one year of care service, after the first year you may choose your level of service: re-plant only or full-care.
