said, "We 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."
"Our 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."
"We have delayed purchasing some machinery that reduces time for the
planting of the trees because it is a large up-front cost and we don't want to
have a huge outlay of cash if our profits keep going down."
"The 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 off."
"Historically, we have always been able to sell everything we produce.
Hopefully, that will continue since Houston is expanding rapidly."
