Currently the centre of the Farm is located in Dvarčius Village, in the territory of Smilgevičiai Manor (dating back to the beginning of the 20th century). Here buildings acquired form an agricultural company were used for establishment of vegetable storages, industrial buildings, and office of the Farm. Currently the Farm employs 87 people.
The Farm is engaged in growing carrots, potatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, zucchini, pumpkins, black radishes, turnips, parsley, dills. The vegetables are also supplied to foreign countries such as Latvia, Germany, Great Britain, Norway, Canada, Russia.
