You may already be familiar with Labyrinth Hill's "Almost Famous" Bud De-Nuding Device. When you're ready to graduate, here are some options that other farms use when the rafters are full of dried lavender bundles waiting to process for their fragrant buds.
Mike Neustrom of Prairie Lavender Farm and a speaker at our 2014 Northwest Regional Lavender Conference, demonstrates a custom-designed bud stripper/cleaner combo.
Elizabeth at Purple Adobe Lavender Farm is one of Mike's happy customers. She hand rubs her bundles to remove the buds and demonstrates using the cleaner part of the above combo.
