A better, faster, and more comprehensive way to tear out an old orchard or vineyard and replant a new one

Holloway Ag has partnered to develop a solution for ripping out and replanting orchards and vineyards that is full service, better for the environment, gives you better results faster, and costs less than traditional burning or chipping. We call it Grave to Cradle™ and here is how it works.

Better technology to tear out your old orchard or vineyard

Holloway will tear out your old orchard or vineyard and chip the dead waste. We then rip the soil in preparation for the new orchard or vineyard. We use cutting edge technology to ensure the entire rootzone gets ripped, amendments are spread precisely, and we set your orchard or vineyard up for optimal crop and soil health.

Two for one hauling

Speaking of amendments, instead of spreading or burning the chips from the old trees and vines, (which is expensive, difficult, creates pathogens and hot spots in your soil, and is bad for air quality) we bring our trucks in loaded with amendments to give you new orchard or vineyard the best start. These trucks are then unloaded and the amendments spread on your soil. The empty trucks pick up the wood chips and haul them away to Holloway Environmental’s waste facility in Lost Hills.

Create energy and amendments from the waste

We have partnered with Aries to build technology at our waste facility that recycles old orchard trees and vine chips into synthetic gas to create electricity to be put back onto the grid. The remains of the process creates a biochar that is heavy in carbon and can be put back into the soil as an amendment. And because the biochar has a honeycomb-like molecular structure it helps retain water in the soil.
