Washed Cull Carrots for horse feed

Hi everyone, I just finished carrot harvest on my farm, and I have many crates filled with washed culled carrots that I'm looking to sell. I understand that horses and most animals for that matter love them, so i was hoping to spread the word. Each crate is apprx 1200 lbs of carrots and were selling them for $20 a crate. I have a forklift that rotates the box, and fits just fine in the bed of pickup, trailer or any bin. Were in the corner of highway 9 and 400 in the Holland Marsh. If you are interested and need more information, just shoot me an email (kyle_h24@hotmail.com) Thank you!

Anything that won't be sold in grocery stores. Broken carrots, split, forked, miss colored, crooked, twisted, insect damage, etc, nothing rotten. There just ugly carrots that people don't want to eat to sum it up. When the carrot sets its root in may/june, its very suseptible to changes in the weather. The last few springs have been very hard on us, causing the carrots to go ugly, but i'd rather sell them then disc back in the field. And i just realized that there are many people from different places here, so are location is Southern Ontario, 30 min north of Toronto.

Makes good feed for help fattening steers too! However you might want to rough grind them so they don't choke.

Thanks! We do our best! The colder canadian climate makes the carrots very sweet, plus our black organic soil is perfect for them. We can store carrots over a year after harvest! One guy came with an old pickup and picked up a box for cows, the next week he came the bed sides where all dented in from the cows trying to get them before he got em out, haha so they must be like candy for animals
