In Coming! Grapes that is....

Ironstone's first grapes coming in!  This year Ironstone has brought the mechanical harvester up from Lodi to have some fun in the foothills.  Caught between fields, this bright yellow monster can harvest cleaner and faster than the old hand picking style.

Today the Muscat came in off the vines, tomorrow comes the Verdello.  Stay tuned for more photos as they come in.

There is actually a great video on youtube by BioNetwork's NC Community Colleges on how the picker actually works. See the link below:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fv-AnyvWL7g
