One of the most damaging adverse weather conditions for a fruit grower is hail, which can easily destroy entire harvests and put the plants in a position not to produce in the years following the event. Recently thunderstorms with hail happened in almost every summer. The more efficient protection system of the plants, which also ensures a continuity of production over time, is surely the installation of anti-hail nets. Our entire orchard is covered in protective netting from hail.

Every tree in Ripe Fruit Farm orchard is watered equally using drip irrigation system which ensured that fertilizer and nutrient loss is minimized due to localized application and reduced leaching. This system also minimizes local foliage and thus reducing risk of diseases which could harm apple trees, additionally reducing need for chemical treatment for trees.
