Hazelnut Harvest…The Rest of the Story

10 Oct

This is our harvester…looks like a very long train!The nuts go into the back of the harvest “train” into a dump cart.

We use wooden boxes to transfer the nuts from the field to the truck.

The boxes are stacked up and wait for the truck.

Using a rotater on the forklift we dump the boxes to be hauled in bulk to the processor.As dad takes the filberts to the processor, I’m smiling because it’s the first year we have a cab on the harvester tractor!!!!!  See how clean I am…INCREDIBLE!!  Below is a picture of last year…quite a difference!
