Cultivating

We start preparing in early spring: around February/March. The fields are ploughed, shaped into beds, cultivated and stones are sifted from the soil so the carrots can grow nice and straight.

Sowing

The carrots are sown in raised beds with room for 3 x 4 rows in each bed. In order to make sure that the carrots are uniform, they are sown at precisely the same intervals and with the correct number of seeds. For one hectare of land we use about 2 million seeds.

On 1 metre in the row, 100 carrots should grow.

Harvest

Around midsummer, the first carrots are ready for harvesting. Harvesting is performed using a lifter, which grabs the carrots at the top and pulls them up. The carrots are then emptied into large container trucks and driven straight to the farm’s washing plant.

Covering with straw

In order to provide customers with freshly dug carrots throughout the winter, we cover the fields with straw. The straw protects the carrots against frost. Every year, we use about 35,000 giant bales for straw coverage.

Washing and packing process

Just a few hours after harvesting, the carrots are washed with clean water in a large brush-washer. Here, soil, stones and other debris are washed off them. After washing, the carrots are graded in an optical grading machine, which can tackle up to 7 different sizes. Once the carrots have been approved, they finally undergo a manual grading process, after which they are sprinkled with ice water and packaged. After packing, the carrots are immediately put into cold storage at a constant temperature of 4-6° before being collected and transported in insulated refrigerated lorries out to our customers.
