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.
