“Orchard-Rite wind machines help protect my cherry crop from both frost and rain.”

I farm about 350 acres of cherries, apples, pears, and peaches with about 71 acres of Bing and Rainier cherries that are very important to my operations. I used to use just seven wind machines on my cherries, but recently added an additional seven for drying purposes should rain threaten to crack the fruit.

I have retrofitted all of the machines with Orchard-Rite’s 19-foot blade to help blow water off the fruit, and it provides very impressive coverage. I get my wind machines serviced and relocated through Cascade Wind Machine, a service provider owned by Orchard-Rite, and they can move all of them in one day. They are as efficient as the machines they service.
