That is a quote from the great Benjamin Franklin.
When it comes to preventing disease, nothing is more powerful than natural foods such as microgreens!
In fact, a group of scientists at the University of Maryland Agriculture & Natural Resources Department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) found that living microgreens have up to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts. These functional foods can help in the prevention and treatment of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Heart Disease and Arthritis, with Cancer being at the forefront of current research studies. In addition, their high nutrient content can help lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, improve digestion, strengthen bones and teeth, improve eyesight, and balance blood sugar!
Everyone knows that organically grown greens are really healthy for you. Nobody talks about the fact that everyday after harvesting those plants are losing nutrients. Couple days in a warehouse, couple days in a truck, couple days in the store, etc.
We deliver our superfood microgreens still alive. They will continue to grow for up to 2 weeks.
You simply cut off what you want to use and leave the rest. Brilliant!
With our PURE growing method, we don't need to add any harmful chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Pure pH balanced water along with natural coco fiber pads and special LED grow lights are all we need in order to produce these outstanding superfood microgreens!
We use natural well water from our Ottawa Valley country property that is PH balanced. It is not necessary to filter out chlorine, fluoride, or any other harmful chemicals because our water starts out fresh and pure on its own.
We only use Non-GMO Seeds. Laboratory created, Genetically Modified Seeds have no place on our farm, let alone in you and your families life. Every seed we plant is certified Non-GMO.
We chose to grow our microgreens hydroponically indoors for several reasons. It's the cleanest growing method which provides a sterile environment for plant production. Plus, vitamin and mineral content can be up to 50% higher in hydroponically grown plants! We can also grow them all year round. So essentially we grow Super Superfoods!
In order to provide the freshest microgreens possible to our awesome customers, we only grow a certain amount each week to cover all our standing orders PLUS some extra trays for our new customers who place orders online. This way, everything is super fresh, and it minimizes waste.
We currently grow 5 of our most popular varieties on a weekly basis. So, if you place an order from our “In-Stock Microgreens” collection, it should ship or be hand delivered within a few days of placing your order. If you order from our “Grown-to-Order Microgreens” collection, we will seed your order the following day and it will be ready within 10-14 days, depending on the variety you ordered.
If you choose to use our “Subscribe and Save” subscription option, we’ll continue to grow your microgreens and deliver them on the weekly interval you selected during checkout. Using this method assures that we will always have microgreens ready for you to enjoy.
We deliver weekly to homes, workplaces, juice bars, health food stores, personal chefs, restaurants, yoga studios, fitness centers, country clubs and caterers.
Wow your customers with the amazing color, flavor and nutritional benefits of microgreens. We Grow-to-Order and only deliver LIVE Microgreens so you can cut and plate as needed. Truly "Farm to Fork" dining!
To be honest, I've never heard of microgreens until I talked with Leah about the benefits. I am now on a weekly delivery order and add it to many of the same dishes I was making before. It's great knowing I am getting a huge increase in the amount of nutrients and vitamins that my body was craving. I really do feel amazing.
