German engineer rolls out hemp harvester for small, mid-size farms

After four years in development, German entrepreneur Heinrich Wieker is now taking orders for a harvester designed specifically for outdoor hemp fields producing flowers for CBD, food and other niche products.

Designed with small and medium-sized farms in mind, Henry’s Hemp Harvester (HHHarvester) gently strips the plant’s flowers and severs the stems in one pass, employing a patented stripping mechanism.

The flowers can be collected in a bag or container, while the hemp stalks are left in the field for retting. Depending on plant maturity at the time of harvesting, it’s also possible to shake out the seeds, completing a triple yield, Wieker said.
