Harvesting can always be a challenge with larger trees, so there are multiple ways that we utilize to pick by hand.
For firm fruits like apples, peaches, and pears, we use a basket picker. You can make your own, if you only have a couple trees, by using a 2 liter bottle cut in the shape of the pickers basket and taping the open pour end onto a broom handle with duct tape.
For nuts and cherries, laying out tarps to the tree line and shaking the tree vigorously. Using protective head gear is definitely recommended! Once you’ve done all you can by hand, then use the bottom end of your basket picker to loosen more fruits from the tree. Good to do every couple days until the tree is bare.
For ease of viewing, we have hidden all out of stock items from the store.
Local Pick-Up orders will receive an email with a link to schedule a 15 minute order time. One order per 15 minutes to ensure that social distancing is maintained. Dismiss
