Custom Vineyard Management:  We will use our 55+ years of combined farming experience to create a management plan to suit your vineyard. We won’t just put your vineyard on a schedule in our rotation with everything else, but will work to make sure we maximize both the quality and production of your block. We work with you to fit what needs to be done in the field with what you budget can afford, without sacrificing the health or productivity of the vineyard.

Custom Spraying – We are a fully licensed and insured pesticide application company for both Trees and Vines. John is the licensed QAL, and our employees receive regular training to ensure they are current with laws, regulations and proper technique. We utilize two-row and standard tower vineyard sprayers to maximize canopy penetration, while minimizing vineyard impact. We also offer strip spraying for weeds and 2-row pressure spraying for dormant or early season foliar applications. Putting the Right Material, at the Right Rate, in the Right Place, at the Right Time, is our code of conduct when it comes to custom pesticide applications.
