Bill has been designing and testing a farm-made lavender debudding machine for several years. The completed project works great and saved the farm $10,000+ from having to purchase a factory-made version. Nothing like having a barn with tools to tinker and create!
The brush is soft and will not cut fingers, but he plans to add a guard to guide the bundles and keep hands from getting brush burns.
Next up, finish the fanning mill which helps sift and remove husks from the product.
