Olive grower triples productivity!

Infaco USA is thrilled to share this story from Sebastopol olive grower Brooke Hazen of Olive Leaf Hill Mills/Goldridge Organic Farms. This is a long video but we just could’t bring ourselves to cut any more of it! Brooke uses Infaco’s Electro’liv battery-operated olive harvester – here are the highlights:

  • Went from harvesting 2 tons/day to 6 tons/day
  • Used to have 30 hand-harvesters and now has a crew of just 19
  • Quality remained the same and kept winning awards
  • Transition to mechanical harvesting was easy and workers loved it

Brooke also shares valuable info about how he organized his harvest crews.
