Steve Mumford, Carrot grower

Steve Mumford has been growing carrots on his farm for more than 20 years. He tells us light, sandy soil is ideal for growth of long, healthy carrots and also helps the harvesting process. Stony soil is unsuitable for root vegetables as they grow around the stones, causing unevenly shaped produce.
