We Grow, pack & Ship
To maintain excellent quality control, we manage the supply chain from the seeds right through to the delivery to your local store. We grow, harvest, clean, pack and ship our carrots ourselves, using modern processes. For example, our produce is washed in water that is cleaned using a natural ozone system, as opposed to added chemicals.

Keep our carrots in the bag they come in and store them in the refrigerator. You’ll find them one of the least perishable vegetables, often lasting well for several weeks. If you have forgotten about your carrots and there are signs of spoilage, adapt the phrase, “When in doubt, please throw out.” We’d prefer that you compost them instead.
Carrots are topped to prevent dehydration that will cause wilting and toughening.
Carrots greens also will spoil more quickly than the orange root so topping them helps to preserve the freshness of the vegetable.
