Harvest 2013

Harvest is going better than anticipated with 55kg harvested so far and one final pick up to go. We’ve been harvesting by hand as a mechanical harvester is not a value for money expense just yet.  We’ve also been drying the nuts in the sunny weather we have been having – up until this week when all the rain we have missed in Spring and Summer has arrived at once. Our last nut harvest is sitting out in it getting wet and mouldy no doubt. It will be interesting to see if there is a higher prevalence of damaged nuts because of it.
