This is our summer carrot harvest straight from the ground. In dry times like it takes very little effort to release these sweet root vegetables from the soil. During our high season, we typically harvest 800 to 1,000 bunches of carrots two or three times a week. It takes 10 field crew members about 2 hours when the harvest is easy, the weather is good, and the crop is healthy. The crew bunches the carrots as they harvest from the field. We don’t weigh or measure specifically, but our crew ties together about a pound of carrots in each bunch. These bunches are loaded on a flat bed and delivered to barn for a high-pressure hose wash.
