IMG_6582_250In the mid 1990’s my father, then working as a senior design engineer built the first machine to process the nuts from our own orchard. After some trial and error, he came up with a cracker only machine using the same mechanism that is now used in our standard range.

Some neighbouring orchards having seen the machine then asked if we would manufacture a machine for them that could also de-husk the macadamia as well as crack.

This led to us manufacturing the macadamia nut cracker machine we still produce today, under the name of Elmore Engineering, which has since grown into a full time business servicing the agricultural community here and around the world.

Feel free to drop me a line or email if you have any questions about our equipment or macadamia growing.

Thanks for visiting our website.
