2019 Harvest - Carnarvon

Harvest of Rockmelon & Honeydew melon out of the Carnarvon region is on track to commence the 10th of November. These will be graded and packed at our Hamel facility ready for both airfreight and seafreight shipments.


Cold Storage Expansion

Capogreco Farms new cold storage facility is almost complete giving them the capability of storing an extra 700 ton across 2 new cool rooms.

A fully sealed receival and dispatch dock area is now present allowing the fruit to be directly taken from the new cold storage and onto the trucks whilst remaining cool.

The two cool rooms allow fruit to be stored at their optimum temperature to ensure the longest shelf life possible. This is especially important when harvesting Rockmelon and Honeydew melon simultaneously as their desired temperatures are very different.



Testing Results & Certification

Test results/certificates and all certification for fresh produce can be found in the "Produce" tab and then the "Certificates/Testing Results" file.

New Picking Machine

Capogreco Farms designed and built a fleet of new harvest aids that cut down picking time by up to 35%
