February Pressing Matters

February 01, 2011

  • Now that harvest is over and your oil has had a chance to rest awhile, it’s time to start the racking process. A simple pump can make the task much easier and faster.

  • This is the time of year to prepare your wintering trees for new spring growth. Prune when you are certain of a few days of dry weather though, to protect freshly-cut branches and limbs.

  • The best time to introduce your oils to new customers is when you can let them sample the freshest flavor. February is a great time to market your new oils to new retail prospects. Put together an expanded target list and start those sales calls.
