It's an annual tradition every spring at Schmitt's Farm in Riverhead - the harvesting of horseradish.
The Schmitt family has been growing horseradish for decades. They used to sell the roots to Gold's. But 10 years ago, they started producing their own line - Holy Schmitt's.
There are seven varieties, with the original being the most popular. The products are sold online, at farmers markets and the family farm stand.
