Carrots are a healthy and delicious vegetable, grown and served across the globe. They are chock full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. This crisp root vegetable has a slightly sweet flavor that becomes more robust after roasting.
For best results, store carrots in the refrigerator. Keep them dry and remove greens for a longer shelf life.
Carrots can be eaten raw, or incorporated into a vast array of recipes. Try making a Thai carrot soup or an Italian carrot cake for international flavors.
About the Farm:
Great River Organics (GRO) is a farmer-owned, non-profit cooperative comprised of growers committed to expanding the footprint of local, certified organic products in the central Ohio marketplace. They’ve built a network of member farms who share a common set of values based on the craft of organic farming, a sense of place unique to Ohio, and the superior taste and quality of the products produced there.
GRO was born of the growers’ passion for providing central Ohio consumers with a diverse range of locally and organically grown produce of the highest flavor, nutrition and quality—while honoring both the farmer and the environment. Developed through strategic partnerships, farm-to-farm relationships, and more than six years of research, it is GRO’s goal to grow regional farm businesses, preserve Ohio farmland, and provide a larger-scale, local alternative to organic produce from outside Ohio.
