“So, how do I eat these?” The most frequent question we hear, and of course, we want to answer with a smirk, “With your mouth.” OOO but that’s not helpful. In reality, add a handful, or more, of microgreens to whatever you’re already eating. Top your salads and sandwiches, the obvious. Add to smoothies, eggs, vegetable side dishes, pizza, soups and atop your favorite main course — steaks to Tater Tot Hot Dish. Everything is better with a little fresh, green, zippy crunch.
“Why do I want to eat these?” Flavor, texture, eye appeal aside, these little power-packed greens are nutrient dense and crazy healthy. We grow, harvest, wash and pack our microgreens with absolutely no chemicals or growth “enhancers.” The seeds and soil are healthy and nutritious. The clear, clean, true flavor shines in microgreens, nothing artificial or preserved. Sweet. Green. Clean.

NEW FOR 2021. EAT WELL. BE WELL CSA Member Share. The GREENSTED regenerative project is excited to jump into our first ever CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) season. We have big dreams and plans going into this first season. And we want YOU to be part of this new opportunity. A CSA program is a great way to (1) pre-pay for a season’s worth of weekly fresh produce and veggies and (2) support the growers and makers of those products by giving them the “seed” money to get started up. When you’re hunkered down in the cold weeks of February and March, producers and farmers are hard at work, quietly starting seeds, sourcing inputs for their products (a.k.a. salsa makers are making agreements with local farmers for the tomatoes and peppers they will need, and the farmers are putting in the seed orders, starting transplants and preparing to fulfill those orders, so you can have fresh, locally made salsa all year long.) and working hard on spreadsheets and balance sheets. When the growing season begins, they are ready for blast off. In June when you get your first fresh salad mix, radishes, peas and beans, they have been a labor of love long before. Click on the graphic to sign up for our program. Please know that this being our FIRST season, we will have some bumps to navigate, so please be patient with us as we learn to provide the very best produce in the very best way.
CSA shares will be available weekly starting in June on Thursdays, 4 to 7 pm. Members must pick up their shares at The GREENSTED property in Zumbrota. No deliveries or other drop sites. Shares will have a variety of vegetables, cut flowers dependent on what the gardens are giving to us each week. Whatever it is, it will be mighty good.
Sunflower Microgreens – tender, crunchy, packed with protein. Kids love them! Add to smoothies, top hot entree’s or eat them out of the box.
Sweet Peas – sweet and delicate, great for salads, sandwiches, wraps and stir fry. Especially a favorite for someone trying Microgreens for the first time.
Classy Classic Mix – Blend of brassica greens – broccoli, kale, red and green cabbages and kohlrabi for a flavor burst. Add to salads, sandwiches and really great with egg dishes.
Zesty Mix – Blend of three colorful mustards, arugula and a hint of collards. Adds the WOW factor to all foods – best with sandwiches/wraps, soups warm vegetable side dishes.
Radish – Good old fashioned radish flavor! A colorful blend of Rambo with purple leaves, Red Arrow with red stems and Sparkler all green, radish. These amp up sandwiches and salads in particular, stirred into potato salads, but are great as topping on soup, eggs and side dishes.
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.
NEW Micros~To~Go: Single Serving size perfect for lunch boxes, picnics, kids, any time you want just a little bit of microgreens here or there. Comes in Classy Classic or Zesty Mix.
Wild Card – Farmers Choice – Varies weekly! Each week, we will pair two different microgreens into one package. Customers can enjoy two types, for the same price as one package. Pair with your salad or entrée menus for that week, or enjoy unique nutritional compatibility such as Sweet Pea Shoots, high in vitamin C, with Sunflower Shoots, high in protein. The extra vitamin C allows for better breakdown of the protein to create a more bio-available absorption. Or appreciate that you are healthier for the taste.
Chef’s Fancy Mix – Chef’s know best. This beautiful, high color, diverse blend of microgreens can’t be beat for versatility and creativity. Comprised of 10 – 12 varieties that include broccoli, red & green cabbage, kale, mustard greens, arugula with Cressida for a ka-pow of flavor and a twist of amaranth for color, makes for an unbeatable culinary delight. This mix was originally created for a local high-end steakhouse chef. When the restaurant had to close due to the pandemic, we were left with a large amount of this unique blend unsold. We took it to the local farmers market and it was a hit. It’s become a local favorite.
