For this Natural Lot, the whole cherries are first kept overnight in a grain pro bag right after being harvested and cleaned. Whit this starts a brief anaerobic fermentation for about 10-12hrs. They are then layered on the drying tables for 12hrs and put bag in grain pro for another night of short Anaerobic fermentation. Then the cherries are spread on the drying beds for ten days and moved about three times per day. This process is finished after drying for 20 days in patios.
