Huntsinger Farms and its subsidiary, Silver Spring Foods, Inc., was founded in Eau Claire, WI in 1929 by Ellis Huntsinger who is nationally recognized as a pioneer in horseradish farming. Still family-owned by Huntsinger’s granddaughter Nancy Bartusch and two great-grandsons, Eric and Ryan Rygg, Huntsinger Farms is now the world’s largest grower and processor of horseradish.
Huntsinger Farms uses a five to seven year crop rotation of 1400 acres of corn, 2100 acres of soybeans, and 310 acres of snap beans to support the production of 700 acres of horseradish. They are vertically integrated with Silver Spring Foods, Inc. and grow and harvest over 8 million pounds of horseradish per year. Crews harvest horseradish in the spring and fall after plants have been in the ground about 12-24 months.
