Market gardeners, take note: A remarkable new tool called the Quick-Cut Greens Harvester will take a huge whack out of your harvesting time. The Harvester, designed by and available from a company called Farmer’s Friend in Williamsport, Tenn., uses a spinning, flexible brush to push greens across a cutting blade and then capture them in a large basket. Powered by a rechargeable drill, the $559 unit can cut all kinds of greens many times faster than someone cutting by hand.
You really need to see the video to appreciate this new tool. Together with hoop houses, this harvester could allow every community in the country to more easily enjoy a wide selection of super-fresh, locally grown, lighter-footprint organic salad greens year-round!
