Scotty Brand Carrots
Our delicious carrots are grown and packed in Scotland by Philip Benzie. Philip farms the same Aberdeenshire land that was once worked by his grandfather, sharing the same passion for farming, quality and strong traditions of rural stewardship. While Philip’s grandfather might be surprised at some of Philip’s modern methods — such as the wind turbine powering the farm’s operations — he would certainly approve of the careful management of the Earth’s resources, merging traditional values with today’s technologies. Scotty Brand carrots are available all year round apart from a month or so in late spring / early summer. We can’t promise they’ll give you perfect night vision, but our carrots are crammed with nutrients and are deliciously versatile vegetables to cook with.
