Root Down Farm

Root Down Farm is a family owned farm run by Steve and Erin Blabac located near the heart of Clarence Center. Started in the spring of 2011 to support 50 CSA shares, it has grown to serve 300 members and FreshFix customers! The farm consists of leased land throughout the town of Clarence; some of which is protected by the Western New York Land Conservancy.

All of Root Down crops are grown without the use of conventional, synthetic or artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. The farm grows many varieties of vegetables, using a careful rotation of crops to help mitigate pests and disease. The farm also strives to minimize its dependency on natural resources by converting a cultivating tractor to an electric motor and using drip irrigation.

Storage
Carrots are hardy vegetables that will keep longer than many others if stored properly. The trick to preserving the freshness of carrot roots is to minimize the amount of moisture they lose. To do this, make sure to store them in the coolest part of the refrigerator in a plastic bag or wrapped in a paper towel, which will reduce the amount of condensation that is able to form. They should be able to keep fresh for two weeks or more if stored properly.
Preparation
Wash carrot roots and gently scrub them with a vegetable brush right before eating. Unless the carrots are old, thick or not grown organically, it is not necessary to peel them.

Cooking Ideas


  • Try combing shredded carrots, beets and apples, and eat as a salad.  

  • Steaming carrots retains flavor and vital nutrients. Cut 1/4 in thick and steam for 5 minutes for optimal nutrition and taste. 

  • For quick, nutritious soup that can be served hot or cold, purée boiled carrots and potatoes in a blender or food processor, and add herbs and spices to taste.

Nutritional Information
They are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals especially vitamin A.   1/2 cup of carrots contains 266% of the Daily Value of Vitamin A and only 27 calories- so eat up!
