Students taste test carrots Monday October 24, 2011 at Rabbit Creek Elementary School. Students sampled carrots from clear and orange cups and marked their favorites on a paper ballot before learning that the clear cups contained Lower 48 carrots and the orange cups held carrots donated by VanderWeele Farms in Palmer. The VanderWeele carrots won by a wide margin. The taste test was held to promote Alaska-grown food in conjunction with National Farm to School Month. The state Division of Agriculture is sponsoring a Farm to School program in Alaska.
