Pick up & Delivery

As we mentioned in our post about baling, the first deliveries to our new facility in Pamplico were literally hours later.  Once the flax has been baled we pick them up and take delivery.  The round bales weigh in at a very respectable 1000lbs each.  Notice the attention the teams are putting into tying down, checking in, and building the bale pyramids. We check in all of the bales with UPC labels, so we can trace where all of our feedstock is coming from, and of course that no bale goes missing.

Keep ’em coming!

Baling in South Carolina

While many of you out there may see this type of activity on your local fields fairly regularly, trust us, it’s not flax that is being baled up.  The CRAiLAR team is happy to see our flax which was harvested a few short weeks ago, get baled up, sorted and prepared to be picked up for delivery to our Pamplico facility.  While the baling is taken care of with some very large machinery and talented operators, the logistics of getting the bales lined up, placed on the flatbeds, tied down and delivered is no small feat.  Thanks to everyone for all your continued effort!

All of this hard work just continues.  Updates on the delivery coming, stay tuned!

NAT to host Farm Day!

This coming Tuesday, May 15th, Naturally Advanced will be hosting CRAiLAR’s Farm Day.  Held at the Pee Dee Research Center, our fiber flax cropping demo will feature demonstrations including planting, seeding, mowing, raking/tedding and baling.

Growers will be learning more about the production of Fiber Flax.  The Naturally Advanced Technologies management team will be there to tell the CRAiLAR story, answer questions, to discuss the unique double cropping opportunity and best practices.

Grow with us!
