CAN: How a craft outdoor grower prepares for harvest

"As it did not go exactly as we had planned, readjustments will definitely have to be made." 'Croptober' has come and gone, and Lune Rise Farms has shared an inside look at what the dry run of their harvesting process looked like. It may have come with some trial and error, but the Canadian craft growers are excited to improve and get their product out into the world.

"We have two different markets that we will be harvesting for: dried flower and fresh frozen. Today's dry run will be for the fresh frozen product. Compared to last year's harvest, we have made a number of changes. Our goal is to get the plant off the field and into the freezer in about an hour and a half," the team says. 

The start of a little bit of frost was a heads-up for the growers that it was time to go. The team members then started their dry run. After chopping the plant down and bringing them to their processing space, they diverted the bucking material into the fresh frozen facility. All of this was supposed to be achieved within that hour and a half time frame. But did they make it?

"It didn't go exactly as planned, but that's why you do a dry run," the team says. "We've got some changes to make before we start our actual harvest because we are currently nowhere near our hour and a half goal. At the same time, some other areas went smoother and quicker than anticipated. So it's a game of readjusting our process now. Still, we are excited to be getting closer to sharing our products with the world."
