The Plant Life Farms Story
Plant Life Farms celebrates its first year anniversary on April 6th, 2016. Having started with just 10 acres of agricultural land in Homestead, Florida a year ago, Plant Life Farms now operates over 230 acres of container nurseries, as well as 150 acres of tree farms.
Plant Life Farms has grown substantially in a very short time period. The explosive expansion has been fueled by the ambition of Miami entrepreneur and businessman, Tom Cabrerizo. Cabrerizo has built, through his CFG Group management company, significant real estate holdings in Florida, with over 6,000 multi-family rental apartment units, 500,00 square feet of commercial real estate space, a building materials supply and distribution business and, now, a vast growing plant nursery.
Cabrerizo was able to acquire the “business assets”, including inventory and equipment, from the secured lenders of the “Medallion” group of companies (Medallion Companies, LLC and Medallion Container Nurseries, LLC). Plant Life Farms did not acquire any of the Medallion entities, nor did it assume any of the outstanding or contingent liabilities of Medallion.
Cabrerizo is not new to the nursery business, having acquired both a container nursery (Paramount Nursery, LLC) and a palm tree field nursery (CET Farms, LLC) in July 2005. These two nursery establishments have been very successful over the past ten years and Cabrerizo will bring his nursery management experience to Plant Life Farms.
Donovan Garrison, a long time South Florida nursery operator, has joined forces with Cabrerizo at Plant Life Farms. According to Cabrerizo, Garrison’s operational, logistical and industry knowledge were key to his decision to expand the nursery operations.
Plant Life Farm’s Mission is to supply quality nursery products at a fair price, to provide excellent customer service and to earn our customer’s business “ONE” plant at a time!
