Many warehouses grow fruit in their own orchards and pack fruit for Independent Growers. When the market is up, the Grower has to share line time with the warehouse fruit.
Holtzinger works with the Grower to determine the best time to pack & sell their fruit.
In challenging years, Growers are sometimes short of money to pay for chemicals and labor to bring their apples to market.
Holtzinger can offer advances on next year’s crop to assist Growers in doing their best to bring a premium crop to market.
Many warehouses will put Growers in a pool. Holtzinger offers individual grower account sales.
Individual account may allow grower to close before a pool does but the pooling option allows a reduced return risk over a volitile sales season.
If you are many miles away from our warehouse, hauling credits may be available to offset the cost of getting your fruit to the warehouse.
Based on location and volume,Holtzinger may be able to assist you with hauling credits.
At your request Holtzinger will place a Quality Control Specialist in your field during harvest at no extra cost to you.
Our Quality Control Specialists will give you real-time updates on the fruit quality you are sending to the warehouse. This will help you eliminate culls in the bin and increase your pack-out.
