Bunny Luv Product Review and Country Chowder Recipe

Bunny Luv Product Review and Country Chowder Recipe

Have you ever had trouble finding a certain brand of produce at your local store?  I went in search of Bunny Luv organic carrot products by Grimmway Farms.  I didn't think I was going to find them after my initial disappointment in the local grocery store.

Grimmway farms produce a number of organic products including a full selection of packaged carrots.  Grimmway is a California-based company that is dedicated to sustainable farming and high quality, non-GMO food.  They work hard to promote economically friendly farming and business practices.  I can get behind a company like that.

Of all the places I looked for Bunny Luv carrots, I never thought to look at the commissary.  The commissary at our local military post recently had an entire remodel which has resulted in a larger selection of produce.  I happened to find the entire selection of Bunny Luv products there.

There have been several more places where I have found their products, including the Hyvee near us.

I was pleased to find that the price of their organic baby carrots and cello-packs of whole carrots are about the same price as buying the non-organic brands.  There was only a 20 cent difference between the two.  Carrots are not terribly expensive, to begin with, but it is nice to know that I can feed my family organic produce without breaking the bank.

The flavor and quality of the carrots were excellent as well.  The baby carrots were sweet and juicy.  They made a great snack and my kids gobbled them up.

My favorite way to eat carrots is in a nice warm soup.  Potatoes and carrots go nicely together- they both have a hearty yet sweet taste when cooked to perfection.

Here is my recipe for Country Chowder, in which carrots play a starring role:
