(WFRV) – Carrots may not be the first commodity that comes to mind when thinking of Wisconsin agriculture, but we are one of the largest producers in the nation.
The majority of Wisconsin carrots are harvested for processing, either slicing or dicing.
Wilfert farms is one of just a handful of growers filling the market in our state. Check out the video to see the unique equipment used for harvest.
