Our sturdy green stalks are processed with the only computerized asparagus sorter and sizer in the eastern United States. This specialized equipment takes 12 pictures per second, photographer each spear to determine its width, and then drops the spear down a chute containing other spears of the same width. After the appropriate weight of asparagus spears has collected against a door at the bottom of the chute, the door opens to let the spears drop down for a work to bundle and box. Our new technology ensures each bundle is of uniform size while minimizing the amount of human handling.
