Microgreens are tasty, tiny vegetable shoots that are harvested at the first true leaf stage. They add a boost of intense flavor to your salads, sandwiches, smoothies, and entrees or as garnish for side dishes.  Add them to your breakfast, lunch and supper. Microgreens boast up to 40% more nutrition than when fully grown!

Microgreens are definitely gaining popularity. They are no longer a “chef only” luxury. Grown year-round, with sustainable practices, low food-print and on-trend local, clear label, #freshisbest high quality,  it is our mission to see 

 Microgreens on every kitchen table.

It’s no secret today’s food customers are looking for local, fresh, flavorful food. They like to shop often, frequent farmers markets and local Co-ops and they like variety. Lots of variety! They’re looking for color, flavor, texture, nutrient dense, unique produce grown responsibly and with sustainability practices. Clear, clean labels, in recyclable packaging. Microgreens are a perfect fit. We all want to know the who, where and why behind the food we eat. We hope you enjoy clicking through our website to learn just that. You’ll find recipes, products, location availability, and of course, our story. #Micromagic
