Harvest Ridge Case Study

Good Essays
MILLERSBURG — With more than $1.6 million raised by the Holmes County Hardwood Furniture Guild, the Holmes County commissioners recently agreed to kick in funds to help make an arena/exposition building a reality at Harvest Ridge.
“The (fundraising) campaign was pretty successful. We're very pleased,” said Guild President Roy Miller, who, along with Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Director Shasta Mast, updated the commissioners on the project, for which they also had several blueprints.
The 150- by 225-foot free span building will be complemented by 30-foot wings, said Mast, noting, in addition to exhibition space, the building will include a large storage area, a milking parlor, to be installed by the dairy boosters at a cost of $80,000, and a large kitchen, for which the Holmes County Farm Bureau will provide necessary funding.

At the request of Miller and Mast, the commissioners agreed to give $100,000 toward the project, for the purchase of pipe and drape, which is used to create vendor space and is necessary for most operations within the facility.
While the building will be owned by Harvest Ridge, the guild will own the pipe and drapes, which it can then rent out for events held at the facility, said Miller, noting, the arrangement would provide the guild with “a gift that would keep on giving forever and ever.”
“We're looking for the best bang for the buck,” said Commissioner Joe Miller, who along with the other commissioners, said he believed the stated purpose for the money was one that made sense to ensure the success of the guild and the facility.
The $100,000 amount is equal to that given by the commissioners to the Holmes County District Public Library for the purchase of a new

    Lunsford has stated that he charges a fixed $13,000 fee for management of the property. While this fee is not over the top, it is good that it is mentioned as he is working with friends and wants to avoid any confusion moving forward. Warehouses are simply constructed, require a lot less capital than other types of buildings, and are quite easy to maintain. That being said, after evaluating the case thoroughly, I think Lunsford can do a couple of things differently to improve his situation with the Shady Trail…

    Riverlea Farm is located in Epping, New Hampshire and is owned and operated by Liz and Jeff Conrad. Riverslea Farm has been a working farm for over two hundred years and Liz and Jeff have been operating it since 1991. The farm was purchased as a foreclosure and neither Jeff or Liz had any real prior farm experience. When Jeff and Liz acquired the farm it had previously been run as an orchard, but the soil quality was extremely poor, leaving animals as the only option for the Conrad’s. Liz and Jeff decided on sheep and goats because they were smaller and easier to handle than larger livestock. In the beginning, the Conrad’s had more animals than they needed. They were able to feed themselves and their neighbors and still have meat left…
