Fruit Harvesting Machines for Small Orchards

Fruit Harvesting Machines for Small Orchard Owners Imported for the First Time
Austrian built, labor-saving fruit harvesting devices now available throughout North America from Ruralistic.

Ruralistic, a new distributor of agriculture goods and content, announces it is importing and distributing Huemer Fruit Harvesting Machines for fruit and nut growers for the 2020 grow season. 

According to Ruralistic President Craig Dick, most fruit harvesting machines marketed in the U.S. are targeted at large commercial growers. Huemer Fruit Harvesting Machines are different. They are built with small commercial growers, hobbyists, and acreage owners in mind.

Engineered with no wear parts and built from stainless steel and backed by a 2-year warranty. Huemer machines are professional-grade on a budget. They reduce the time and labor needed to collect apples, pears, apricots, and more. "I needed a low cost, fast, efficient, cost-effective way to collect the dropped apples from my trees, and this is the only viable option out there," states Dick.

"When I saw the video of these machines, I had to have one. When I went to purchase one I couldn’t find anyone in North America selling them," adds Dick. "I contacted the company and we now have a shipping container of these machines that will be delivered to our warehouse this month. Many of them are already sold or spoken for."

Available machines may still be purchased via credit card or money order at https://www.Ruralistic.Co.
