The results presented in this publication serve as a general guide for evaluating the feasibility of two different harvest methods—hand and mechanical—for cider apples grown in western Washington as of 2015. Specific budget assumptions were adopted for this study, but these assumptions may not fit every situation since production costs and returns vary across orchard operations. To avoid unwarranted conclusions for any particular orchard, readers must closely examine the assumptions made in this publication, and then adjust the costs, returns, or both as appropriate for their operation.
