Farm Fresh Greens
"Our mission is to provide Michiana with the freshest, tastiest, and most nutritious microgeens possible and to foster our relationships within this community to serve it to the best of our ability."
What is a Microgreen?
Microgreens are very young versions of your favorite leafy greens and vegetables. They are usually harvested 7 to 24 days after germination, right after the plant's first leaves (cotyledon leaves) emerge. Because they are so young they contain a condensed amount of vitamins and minerals that not only makes them tasty, but a great source of plant based nutrition. We grow many different kinds of microgreens that all offer different nutritional benefits. Whether you are a chef, avid home cook or casual eater, try some microgreens to add the perfect punch of excitement and nutrition to your next plate.
How do they compare to Adult Greens?
Just like a seed contains a very high density of energy and minerals, microgreens contain a high concentration of nutrients and flavor! An American chemical study looked at nutrient levels of 25 different microgreens and compared them to full-size leafy vegetables and herbs. Nutrient levels in different microgreens varied, but they always had higher levels per gram of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A than mature cops. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, (Aug. 2012). We are still learning a lot about microgreens and their role as a highly nutritious food. What is clear now, is that theses tiny greens are delicious, easy to use and a fantastic way to add a healthy kick to your diet.
We love Michiana and want to see your healthy smiling face! We have made a pledge to produce the highest quality microgreens possible and come to work each day to make that dream a reality. So what does that mean? First off we grow 100% clean. That means no pesticides, herbicides or any other nasty chemicals coming in contact with YOUR FOOD. It also means that we use 100% renewable energy to power our farm. We use a lot less water than a traditional farm and all of our packaging is made from plant material and is compostable!
Our product is grown with tender love and care and it shows. It is also sooo fresh! We grow right here on the farm and deliver to local stores and restaurants on the SAME DAY as we harvest the greens. We harvest on the same day for our Farm Fresh Pick-Up Days, as well as for our Farmer's Markets we visit. We are meticulous about our growing and love hearing all the amazing stories from our customers. These greens are really good, that's all we'll say, we want you to hold us to the test!
