The 2009/2010 harvest is well underway. And the development of our new organic processing facility and tea drying yard is paying of.
We expect to make over 200 tons of top quality tea during this harvest season. Our choices of new top-of-the-range machinery, pristine water supply, and experienced staff is resulting in good through-put and top quality results. The processing team is enjoying working with the new machinery and implements.
Initial reports from customers are that our tea cut and length consistency is superior to what they generally experience from other processing facilities. We are now able to accurately cut different lengths and custom produce Rooibos tea which meets our customers marketing plans and expectations.
Otherwise, the extra bit of rain which fell at Klipopmekaar late last year has been good for the tea. The harvest is looking good and the newly planted fields are growing nicely.
