Nosh on Nash's Best!
They’re called Nash’s Best! for a reason. Nourished by the fertile alluvial soil of the Dungeness River Valley, these vibrantly orange carrots are the sweetest and crispest of their kind. Grown by Nash Huber of Nash’s Organic Produce in Sequim, Wash., Nash’s Best! carrots are renowned thanks to Huber’s relentless dedication to sustainable, organic farming and his vast understanding of the land.
The microclimate in the Dungeness Valley allows for year-round farming, and Huber grows a variety of produce including greens, beets, potatoes and cauliflower. His team harvests on order for PCC, so his carrots and other produce you’ll find in our stores are the definition of fresh.
Meet our grower
One of the first farmers in Washington state to be certified organic, Nash Huber grows his own cover crops — organic barley, triticale and rye — to fertilize his land and to feed pigs and chickens. He also extensively composts, further contributing to soil fertilization without the use of chemicals. In addition, he has helped save hundreds of acres of local farmland and important wildlife habitat.
In 1999, Huber asked PCC if we’d be interested in helping him save farmland in the Dungeness Valley from development. This led to the creation of the PCC Farmland Trust, and in 2001 the Trust purchased the 97-acre Delta Farm which Huber calls the “crown jewel” of the 400 acres he farms today. In May 2008, Huber received the Steward of the Land Award from the American Farmland Trust, a recognition most definitely deserved. Read more »
