Re: Poetry in motion
We are working in Hawkes Bay on the North Island. This crop was pretty good, went about 8 tonne/ hectare @ 100TR. We have two 530's and two 520's. Got hundreds more pics Tas but still learning how to work this website.

Re: Poetry in motion
Tas, We are harvest contractors who own, operate and service the viners to harvest the entire pea crop for the McCain, Hastings factory

Re: Poetry in motion
as a dryland farmer i have never seen a machine like this, i take it that its for collecting the pea pods for the fresh vegetable market?? do you have to pod the peas seperatly or does this machine do that too?

Re: Poetry in motion
Andy, The machines thresh the pea from the pod then separate the peas from all the vine and leaf. They are amazing machines to see working. There is not really any such thing as fresh peas, they are all frozen or canned within a couple of hours of being harvested due to their high rate of perishability.

Re: Poetry in motion
thats what i ment by fresh sorry i diddnt explain better. all our peas are harvrsted hard as grain for stock feed.
sure must be excellent things to see working!

Re: Poetry in motion
The peas you grow Andy would be field peas & these peas are green peas (also known as vining peas / canning peas / process peas).

GC, I thought McCain had closed their factory in Hastings & transferred production to their Timaru factory? Maybe this was only the potato side of things?

Re: Poetry in motion
I thought most of our peas we eat here come from china hand picked and podded by kids payed a pittence for their work! how wrong was i!. we always grow our own in the garden....last year we tried field peas and they too cook up very nicely!! almost better than green peas!!

Re: Poetry in motion
The majority of the Aust grown peas come from Tassie Andy (Edgell, Birdseye, McCain). There are also peas imported from NZ and from Europe. McCain have set up a factory in China, mainly for potato products I think.

Field peas (especially blues) make good soup too. The maples (greys) are used for sprouting, blues for split peas & pea flour while marrowfats are exported to Asia to make snackfood.

Cheers,

TC.

Tas, McCain closed their Fielding Factory late last year that was processing potatoes. The Hastings factory processes Peas, Sweet Corn, Carrots and the microwave dinners.
