Randy Ski Hi Packing Manager

Randy – Packinghouse Manager

What apples go for cider? Which ones will be for pies? Randy gets to decide the fate of each apple coming out of the orchard. Randy ensures each bin of apples coming from the orchard are washed, sorted, and packed. He is also in charge of pressing the cider and chooses the combinations of apples to be mixed together so that each batch meets our high quality standards for cider that our customers expect.
