DanRoots grows a wide range of Danish carrots and offers both conventional and organic production.

The Danish climate is particularly good for growing carrots, which means a long season for harvesting fresh carrots. A special cultivation method, which involves the root vegetables being covered with straw in the autumn, allows DanRoots to harvest fresh root vegetables throughout the winter. The straw insulates and protects the soil from freezing and thereby also protects the carrots from the cold weather. When carrots remain in the ground throughout the season, they retain fresh. DanRoots has a special set-up with maschines that can harvest in all kinds of weather, and even though snow and frost can sometimes be tough, fresh produce can be delivered.

Carrots are one of the most popular vegetables in Denmark. It is also this vegetable that contains most vitamin A, which contributes to a stronger immune system and healthier skin. Carrots are also high in dietary fiber, which can contribute to better digestion.

Carrots are crunchy, firm and juicy and can be prepared in many different ways: they can be eaten raw, roasted, boiled and steamed. The sweetness of the carrots also makes them great in baked goods.



The first conventional carrots are ready to be harvested in June.

The organic carrots are ready about a month later; i.e. in July.

The weather (sunny, warm and rainy) is a major determinant of when you can harvest.


Carrots are best to be stored in the vegetable drawer of the fridge in the coldest place.

ORGANIC Snack carrots

Organic snack carrots are one of the latest developments that have found a place in the market. It is a particularly “slim” sort with lots of flavor and sweetness.

Snack carrots are grown under the same conditions as regular carrots. This means, that they stay in the ground throughout the season and can be harvested fresh every day.

Snack carrots are ideal for packed lunches, as a snack on the go or as an easy part of dinner. They can be enjoyed raw, baked or fried. One of our favorites is oven-baked snack carrots with balsamic glaze – it’s delicious!

Many ways to cook

Carrots are ideal raw as well as cooked, roasted and baked.

Carrots are delicious in soups, stews and salads. They can also be baked in the oven or pan-fried so they are golden but still with a bite.

Carrots have a wonderful sweet flavour that is ideal for use in bread and cakes. In addition to a great flavor, they also provide the bread and cakes with a moist texture.

We always recommend that root vegetables are washed well before cooking to avoid soil bacteria in the kitchen.
