Harvest season usually starts sometime between July and August, depending on the weather. Hand harvesting using specialized metal hand rakes and mechanical harvesting are both used.
Algoma Highlands has set up a fresh pack processing plant in an on-site vacant industrial building in close proximity to the fields. They currently have 2 full fresh processing lines that are successfully operated by 4-6 people at a time.
Several packaging methods have been used and are available upon request by our large quantity buyers or distributors. They include 5lb and 2.5lb shallow wax boxes, 10lb and 5lb bags, and fresh 3L baskets and clear plastic pints.
