Huntsinger Farmís employees plant horseradish in both spring and fall using custom built equipment similar to potato planters. Short sections of root trimmed from the previous yearís crop are placed in the soil where they will sprout in the spring and grow into a new crop.

Farm Manager, Ken Traaseth, continually works to improve horseradish yield and quality at Huntsinger Farms. He routinely inspects the horseradish fields
during the summer growing


Like planting, horseradish harvesting takes place in both the fall and spring. Modified potato diggers reach deep into the soil to remove as much of the root complex as possible. Conveyers fitted with steel bars work to shake off the soil before the roots are loaded in trucks for transport to cold storage.
