Hazelnut Harvest 2015

28 Sep

  
We have reached the final crop to harvest on our farm for 2015!!! Hazelnuts (filberts) have been falling from the trees for weeks now and we have headed out to pick them up off the ground.   

  
Unlike some other nuts, filberts fall naturally from the trees, no shaking needed. We then use a sweeper machine to put them into rows, a harvester to pick up the rows and totes to move them to the truck to transport them to the processor. 

  
  We grow a lot of crops for seed on our farm, so it’s always fun to have a crop you can harvest and have a snack or two while you’re driving through the field! 

I have some good videos of harvest that I will post next week and explain the actual process a bit more. Until then keep eating those hazelnuts, we have more coming down the line!

We’re still thick into perennial ryegrass seed harvest!  You all better plan to re-seed your lawn this year…because boy do we have some seed for you!
