The improvements include new furniture and a more efficient office layout to streamline the customer experience and reduce wait times.

Uesugi Farms for sale

Uesugi Farms’ Highway 25 shipping facility and agricultural land is up for sale.

The family-owned vegetable producer with operations in California and Mexico announced in late 2018 that it would sell off all of its equipment and wind down its operations in 2019.  It planted no vegetable crops in 2019.

In a listing by Colliers International, the property, located at 1020 Highway 25 near the San Benito County line, is described as 68 acres of agriculture and industrial space with solar panels. It includes a 25,000-square-foot packing and cooling facility, 8,500-square-foot packing shed, an office and other smaller coolers.

The listing also mentions the site as a “potential hemp processing facility.” Santa Clara County has currently banned hemp production until federal and state regulations are implemented, which is expected in 2020.

The asking price was not disclosed.
