About Brookings Harbor: Nestled on the extreme southwestern Oregon Coast, Brookings-Harbor is at the heart of America's Wild Rivers Coast. With the Siskiyou National Forest on the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west, the area offers panoramic views of temperate rainforests, expansive coastline and where you will find a year round temperate climate and arguably some of the world’s best sport fishing. The National Redwood Park with some of the world’s largest trees is located just minutes from Flora Pacifica.
About two-thirds of Curry County’s population (22,000) lives in the Brookings-Harbor area in the southern end of the county. When combined with the commercial area of neighboring Del Norte County, California, provides the economic growth engine for the region.

As currently organized, Flora Pacifica has 5 primary divisions, as follows:
The Farm: Hydrangeas flourish in the cool marine climate and are of prime quality. Fresh hydrangeas are shipped nationwide from June to October. Hydrangeas are also dried and preserved in house. A variety of cut flowers and herbs are grown that are sold fresh or dried/preserved and sold through the retail shop or made into wreaths. Certified organic vegetables are also grown on the farm.
Special Forest Products: Utilizing products available from nearby national forests (certified organic), the SFP division has an almost unlimited supply of raw materials for use in the floral industry. Techniques and equipment have been developed to preserve a variety of foliage into products that are used in making wreaths, potpourri and other floral products. Hydrangeas, lavender, rosemary and other farm grown products are processed in these facilities to provide products of whatever color are fashionable at the time. Dryers and coolers are in place to hold and process fresh product in prime condition. International markets have shown interest in some of these products, specifically China, Japan and Europe.
Creative Design: Turning fresh, dried and preserved products from the farm and forest into wreaths, swags and many other floral products that are drop shipped for major print and internet catalog companies is a major portion of the business.
Retail Shop and Nursery: The Retail Shop and Nursery, located on the property, provides a market for farm produce, hand crafted floral products and makes available to landscapers and home owners quality trees, shrubs, perennials and bedding plants. The Retail Shop is a full service florist and promotes the public image of the business hosting community events, providing tours and making local products available to locals and tourists.
Administration: Coordinate the activities of all divisions in addition to Business management services and provide liason with customers.
These components along with trained and dedicated personnel are generating $750-800,000 in gross sales annually. Profit and loss statements, taxes and balance sheets are available to qualified buyers upon request. The new owner could expand this established base, perhaps by utilizing internet sales more effectively and developing plans for a change in direction. The web presence is underutilized and the production facilities can sustain and increase in the online sales arena.
Assets the new owner would have include:
The property is located on Oceanview Dr., South of the Brookings Harbor between Highway 101 and the Pacific Ocean.
