How are baby carrots are made

Baby carrots are made from larger carrots! Large carrots are put in to a machine that basically cuts it down to about 2 inches. Then, it goes through peeling tanks where peelers rotate and scrap off the skin and rounds the carrots out too. This is why they are so small and round!
