Harriston-Mayo was pleased to be invited to the 16th Annual Walker Bros./Gold Dust Farms Open House and Golf Tournament. Bill and John Walker, along with their family, are longtime Harriston and Mayo customers.
We were represented by Todd Geyer, our Harriston-Mayo Idaho location manager, and Mike Delisle, our general and sales manager at our Mayo Manufacturing East Grand Forks, MN, location. The event coincided with the delivery of new Harriston and Mayo equipment.
Mayo delivered a new Surge Hopper. This is the second one that Gold Dust Farms has purchased. Mayo Surge Hoppers allow fast, gentle unloading of field trucks. Potatoes are carried and discharged on a wide, live bottom belt with even feed and no dirt build-up.
Harriston delivered a new Speed Clean, the second one that Gold Dust Farms has purchased. Potatoes pass over a dirt-eliminating table, a pintle belt with fan for vine removal, and an adjustable sizer. Potatoes are unloaded, cleaned and ready for storage with the gentlest handling possible.
Gold Dust Farms was also able to take this opportunity to fundraise for the Make-A-Wish charity. Led by Jan Walker, Katie Walker and Lexi Crawford, they raised over $20,000 at this event for a wonderful cause, and we look forward to seeing their hard work do great things.
We would like to thank Bill and John Walker, John’s children Tricia and Westin, and the Gold Dust Farms team for a great day of facility and field tours, golf, and the evening reception.
