Hello folks,
We have a 5 acre organic apple orchard and we are wanting to create some efficiencies in our post harvest system. We sell the majority of our harvest to grocers and high end distributors, so the fruit has to look good. Right now we inspect and buff each apple by hand. We are thinking a washer and some conveyers might help speed things up. Does anyone have any equipment company recommendations? Machines you find really helpful? Any advice is appreciated.

Cheers,
Rachel Ashley

I recommend TEW equipment. They make small scale washers and sorters. We got ours used but they have a full line of parts and good service. They have been in business for decades.
