Funds are needed for a Haskap Harvester
More details about the campaign to be released this summer, launching January 2018............
As our farms grows, we get closer to harvesting and so must our ambitions to build a processing chain. That means we need to buy even more equipment, a Haskap harvester.
Andrew, owner, spend this last winter travelling the prairies and the west coast, researching the best harvester for haskaps and seeing how other haskap farmers shake the fruit free, as well as how the west coast blueberries growers harvest. After touring the Pacific Agriculture show, best horticulture show in the west, and visiting three harvesting companies in BC and Oregon, he has chosen, the side row Littau harvester because it has an aggressive shaking head, fruit drop is kept to a minimum, the technology has barely changed in the last 10 year, making the 2011 medel a cost effective and versitile harvesting purchase.
