Welcome to Dangling Carrot Farm! Dangling Carrot is a small-scale produce farm located thirty miles south of Columbus, operated by Becky Barnes. I grow a wide array of vegetables, and specialize in onions, heirloom tomatoes, garlic seed, and salad greens.
The name Dangling Carrot is derived from the iconic donkey following a carrot on a string. Many believe that true happiness occurs while in the state of desire. Farming is a profession that evokes this sensation. Amid the struggles with climate and environment, I am ever motivated to produce. The successive process of planting, weeding and harvesting, resembles the donkey's persistence to follow that carrot before it's eyes.

Dangling Carrot is certified organic! My practices include adding minerals and composted manure to the field, crop rotating and lots of hand weeding! I do not spray synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. My philosophy is that healthy soil will grow delicious vegetables.
