Many of our species are first harvested by hand. Some crops we can take with combine harvesters, brush harvesters and our own bespoke methods. Then the seed-head, chaff and  seed is gathered,  bundled, transported, to our seed house, where its checked, dried, sorted, straw is removed, chaff is removed, After winnowing and sieving it's then  stored, to be mixed and packed, all in Ireland, for Irish growers.

Wildflowers are older than the oldest antiques,  Brighter than the newest novelty
