Pineapple farming

Hi Gideon,
Would it be possible for you to do a “rent to own” deal instead of just renting a piece of property for pineapples? This way a portion of the rent you pay can be used as a down payment to purchase land outright. If you are doing all of the work to plant and maintain the pineapple plants perhaps this would be a better business option. With Regards, Margaret
