14 Jul Visiting Farmers
On July 12; Broetje Orchards had the opportunity to host a group of Horticulturists from New Zealand. The group got a chance to sit down with owner Ralph Broetje and discuss pressing issues similar to what we are facing in the Apple Industry which included new trends in picking, packing labor and workforce management. They also met with two of our warehouse managers and discussed packing trends and got a walkthrough of our packing line. The group ended the day with an extensive walkthrough of our orchard and talked about orchard maintenance and techniques with our Prescott Orchard Manager. We want to thank them for coming out and visiting.
