Grapes and Olives are your valuable commodity hanging on vines or in trees and you want the very best when it comes to efficient and cost effective harvesting operations.
Offering both mechanical and hand-picking services, Pridham Viticulture can provide you with the very best when it comes to vintage and harvest.
Our mechanical harvesting service utilises the trusty Gregiore G65 and the state of the art Pellenc 8090 Selectiv’ Process. The Selectiv’ Process results in the cleanest pick possible, even more so than traditional hand picking! Less MOG means a happy winemaker and a happy winemaker makes for a happy vintage. In addition to the picking itself, we can also handle full harvest logistics and winery liaison for our clients.
While becoming less prevalent, hand picking is still a requirement for 1st year cropping vines, bush vines, many old vines and for particularly valuable crops. Each year Pridham Viticulture organises teams of dedicated, hard-working folk who, despite the heat, flies and long days, perform tirelessly to get your crop to its destination on time and in-tact. We manage two hand picking crews for small and large jobs.
While our focus might be all things viticultural, we also provide services to the thousands of olive trees of the region and the space is growing. If you are unable to machine harvest then our system is the next best method of olive harvest. Using the Pellenc Olivion range of olive rakes with olinet or floor mats we can manage olive harvesting efficiently and without fuss.
