2018 season gets under way.

Gearing up for 2018 Harvest

Gearing up for 2018 Harvest

The berries are close to their normal size and have started to colour up already.  We will be ding a trial pick next week to run through the mill to check out all of the Alfa Laval equipment and make sure that we are ready to go when harvest commences.
