Carrots

We are growing 130 hectares of organic carrots for the 2020/2021 season, which are destined, in the main, for the UK’s major supermarkets.

Supply starts in August and extends through to the following May, with all later harvested (December onward) carrots being ‘strawed up’ through the winter months.

Varieties include: Norwich, Nairobi and Eskimo.

Variety Development: We are always keen to look at new varieties. For example, this year we are monitoring drillings of a variety called Brilliance.

New Product Development: This season, in conjunction with Dr Richard Binks of freshtec.co.uk, we are using a biological approach to help reduce carrot root fly.
