Here are the pictures from our 2021 harvest which took place at the beginning of October.
First, the roots are dug from the ground using a special implement similar to one used to dig up potatoes.
Then, the roots are loaded by hand into a trailer. This allows workers to inspect each root and discard roots that have any blemishes or discoloration.
This year's roots look great!
After the roots are harvested, they are thoroughly rinsed and sent into the dryer.
After 3 to 4 weeks of drying, the roots are ready to be packaged and shipped!
By the beginning of November, all of the roots sold on our website will come from our 2021 harvest.
