2020, get the almond harvest started

From the trees to the consumers. The harvest of the almonds occurs between the end of July and August.

In the past they were picked by hand and canes and perches made the knocking down process easier. The almonds fell on a large pieces of canvas laying under the trees and then they were collected. Today the process is done mechanically, thanks to special umbrella-shaped shakers. So the almonds are ready for the hull-removal process, the drying process and further production steps.
