Pistachio Harvest 2015

PHarvest 965

Harvesting pistachios is an interesting process. Most pistacios are harvested using a mechanical shaker that drives through the rows of trees shaking each tree and gathering all the pistachios that fall. The smaller trees however have to be hand-harvested using a pipe to knock the pistachios off the tree and a tarp to collect them.

These pistachios are off to be roasted and salted before coming back to our tasting room to be sampled and sold.
