Talley Farms, Arroyo Grande, CA

Precooling helps to remove field heat from produce boxed up directly in the fields.

Vacuum cooling (sucks the heat out)

Hydrocooling with ice cold water (rinses veggies too)

Green bell peppers

Packing boxes

As an added bonus we watched another Atlas V rocket, launched from Vandenberg AFB, from the Talley Farms parking lot.
