Sometimes harvesting carrots is a muddy job! Using a broadfork, or digging fork, we loosen the carrots in the soil profile, then pull them out, removing large dirt clods at this time. Transporting by crates and wheelbarrow to the washing table.

After the presoak the tops get trimmed and roots laid out for spraying.
The roots are then sprayed to remove the rest of the dirt.
