We Grow Microgreens

Our micros are sold by the half pint. The weight is different for each variety, so volume is the most consistent way to sell these tiny, nutrient packed greens. Add more than multiple orders to your cart if you would like a larger amount. Our microgreens orders are generally harvested the same day as market for maximum freshness. Please inquire for wholesale orders.

You can use these versatile greens just about anywhere you would use regular greens. They make an excellent garnish for enhancing the flavor, nutritional value and color of dishes but can also be used in salads, wraps, sandwiches and more.

Storage: Microgreens are best stored at high humidity but not resting in water. Keep in mind they tend to have relatively short shelf lives, so it’s best to use them within a few days of harvest if possible.

Microgreens are much more nutrient-dense foods than their fully mature counterparts. This is because they take all of the important vitamins and minerals found in the mature plant and manage to cram them into a much smaller package.

Most vegetables provide a diverse array of nutrients. Swiss chard, for example, is especially high in vitamin K, vitamin A and vitamin C, while beets are loaded with manganese and folate. The microgreen versions of these vegetables boast just as varied a nutrient profile and can help boost your vitamin and mineral intake quickly and easily.

In a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, microgreens contained between four to 40 times more nutrients by weight than their fully grown counterparts. This means that including just a few servings of microgreens into your diet alongside plenty of other fruits and vegetables can ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need to maintain optimal health.
