Sweet and Crunchy Local Carrots in January in Dawson?
Yup! Suzanne has been munching on sweet & crunchy carrots from Kokopellie Farm all January. “They taste like they are freshly picked only even sweeter!” offers Suzanne. Otto Muehlbach, whose farm is in Sunnydale (Dawson), has designed a large root cellar to store carrots, potatoes, cabbage, beets, and other root veggies all winter long. The trick seems to be 2-4 degrees C and keeping the humidity and condensation low. If you can find a way to get to Sunnydale, Otto’s fresh root vegetables are sold from his house on Saturdays between 2 and 5 pm as long as it is warmer than -30C. It is definitely worth the trek!

I wish I could go to Otto’s house for these amazing vegetables! I know you appreciate having this available to you way up there in Dawson 🙂
Yes! It is a wonderful thing to have talented local farmers that provide us with delicious and nutritious vegetables, even North of 60.
