Around The Farm

What’s Happening on the Farm this Week?

Product Highlight

The Greensted Farm Store News
Local Farm Store Granola

This week, we have started to film YouTube videos. We want to extend our reach and show a little bit more about what we do here at The Greensted. These videos will include happenings around the farm and other fun and exciting series. Currently, we have been filming our friend Nancy Ellison who owns Ellison Sheep Farm in Zumbrota. We hope to be posting more videos soon so look out for those! Click here to go to our channel!

Our product highlight this week is granola by Brainstorm Bakery. Brainstorm Bakery came about with just a silly idea about naming granola ‘Crapola’. This grew roots and became the successful business they are today. All of their granola varieties have fun names like ‘Kissypoo’ and ‘Number 2’. The Farm Store carries all varieties, make sure to check them out!

Farm Store

Microgreen of the Week

Grow Microgreens
The Greensted Minnesota Microgreens

Don’t forget to stop in the Farm Store for eggs, baked goods, meat, and your own “Microgreens Mini Grow Kit”! These kits are great for kids. It’ll keep them busy everyday with watering and watching them grow!

Our microgreen of the week is Pizzazz. Pizzazz means “vitality with a touch of glamour.”  This blend is a combination of spicy cress, red cabbage, broccoli, which rank highest for nutritional  benefits on the USDA website, and the glamour is a bit of amaranth microgreens. So delicious you will want to try it on everything you eat.
