Firstly, let’s address the fact that solo Biker businesses are not great. You have to monitor them closely as the sell missions can be challenging. If the stock levels go above a quarter, you will have to deliver multiple lots of products, which can result in delivering up to ten vehicles. Let it go above half, and you’ll end up with up to fifteen drops, and if you allow stock levels to go above three-quarters, then you’ll have four vehicles to deliver and up to twenty drops. From experience, delivering more than three vehicles worth of product is impossible within the half-hour timeframe. Also, there’s always a risk of having your product destroyed while it’s left unattended back at base, especially since these missions can only be done in public lobbies.
Despite claims from others about Biker businesses being passive, it’s not entirely true, especially when compared to Arcades, Nightclubs, and Agencies. Supply missions are a considerable portion of these businesses, and they act like fetch quests. Without proper monitoring, these missions can be challenging, making Biker businesses less passive than other similar businesses.
Weed Farm Facility
The Weed Farm Facility is one of the entry-level biker businesses in GTA 5 Online. It’s a cost-effective option that can earn you roughly $41,000 per hour with upgrades, which are essential since the facility brings in only $19,500 per hour without them, making it an insignificant amount of money given the effort required.
Before purchasing the facility, you need to have a Motorcycle club set up. The cheapest one available is the Grange Apparel Clubhouse at $200,000. Once you have the clubhouse set up, you can purchase the new horticultural warehouse. The cheapest location is the Sanchiansky Mountain Range at $715,000. However, it’s located in the middle of nowhere, so it’s recommended to purchase a location closer to town.
To maximize your profits, you need to have upgrades for your facility. Upgraded equipment costs $990,000, and additional staff costs $273,000. Investing in security at $313,500 is also recommended for added security. It’s worth noting that the upgrade costs are identical, regardless of the location you choose.
The total minimum expenditure for the clubhouse, business, and upgrades is $2,491,500, plus $4,800 per hour to cover staff and maintenance. Assuming you can make the maximum hourly profit of $41,000, it’ll take approximately 69 hours of real-world gameplay for you to break even. Hence, it’s best to view these businesses as a long-term investment.
There are four different locations available for the weed farm: Sanchiansky Mountain Range, Mount Chiliad, Alyssian Island in South Los Santos, and Downtown Vinewood North Los Santos. The location chosen can affect the convenience factor since it changes the distance to other businesses and facilities. There’s no ability to customize the appearance of the building; you get what you buy.
Setting Up the Weed Farm
Once you have your Weed Farm set up, head over to the facility and briefly go through the introduction. Head over to the computer, ensure you’re the president of the club, and click the “set up” button. Once done, you’ll be booted back to the lobby, and LJT will give you a call to brief you on your next steps. Listen to LJT, who may be voiced by Lester using a vocoder. Head over to the location and get ready to start your business.
Log in to your computer again, and select the upgrades from the available options to purchase them. Upgrades are expensive, but they increase the production rate and make the business more secure. Once you’ve bought the upgrades, the business will begin producing stock, and you can maintain other facilities and businesses in the meantime.
Resupply Your Business
There are two methods to resupplying the business: purchasing supplies or stealing them. If you purchase the supplies, head over to the PC and click the resupply button to obtain them. It costs around $75,000, but partial resupplies are possible with other businesses, making it cheaper.
If you choose to steal the supplies, complete the missions required to collect them. There are roughly six different missions, so listen carefully to LJT’s instructions. Once you complete the missions, the production of stock will begin, and you can move on to the next stage.
Sell your Product
Once you have enough stock available, it’s time to sell it. Head back to the business premises, sit down at the PC, and select the “sell stock” option. Choose the higher amount if you listed it for long enough, or select the quicker option if you lost track of time. If you allow stocks to go beyond the first market, you may need to do two trips. Listen to LJT’s instructions to deliver the goods, avoiding any griefers or threats. Once everything is delivered, your account will be credited with the profit.
To maximize profits, it’s best to pay for supplies rather than completing resupply missions. These missions take too much time, and it’s not profitable. In the same amount of time, you can play VIP work and Contact missions, which are significantly more lucrative.
In conclusion, the Weed Farm Motorcycle Business in GTA 5 Online is an excellent entry-level business into the world of Biker businesses. The facility is affordable, but the upgrades are costly yet necessary. Solo businesses require intense monitoring, making them challenging. However, with a group of friends, this business can be an incredibly profitable endeavor.
