The Pilgrims first brought carrots to North America, intending to harvest them in the colonies. Carrots were an easy vegetable to grow and were an integral part of nourishing humans and animals alike. In 1787, George Washington wrote in a letter to Benjamin Fitzhugh Grymes, “I am convinced that in proper soil the culture of carrots will be found very advantageous for feeding farm horses and every piece of stock. I am inclined to think that rows of carrots will yield 5 to 8 bushels of carrots to one corn.”

Join us on Tuesday, February 2 at 6:30 pm for another installment of Tavern Tastings, a virtual lecture series with Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center. Education & Public Programs Associate Theresa DeCicco* will join Keeler Tavern Museum’s Chief Curator Catherine Prescott* to talk about the history of carrots throughout the colonies.

Registered participants will receive a link to the Zoom program as well as Samuel Fraunces’s very own carrot cake recipe. Registration ends at 3:30pm on Tuesday, February 2.

Venue: Fraunces Tavern Museum
