FRESH FROM OUR INDOOR GARDEN
We'd love to grow microgreens especially for you & deliver them from our door to yours!
If you've ever tasted microgreens - or never tasted them - we are happy you are here. Thank you for stopping by. We love microgreens with a passion and hope to inspire you to love them too (if you don't already)! Most people know microgreens as a garnish restaurants use to embellish food, and while we agree they are very cute, they are so much more.
Good Things Come in Small Packages
Simply put, microgreens are baby plants, harvested at the stage between sprouts and baby greens. Despite their tiny size, or more accurately because of it, they contain 4 to 40 times more phytonutrients, vitamins, sulforaphane, minerals, and healthy goodness than mature plants.
Food as Medicine
If you believe, as we do, that you are what you eat and that food can either heal chronic illness and disease or cause it, adding microgreens to your diet is an easy way to help your immune system function at its best (i.e., help you to help yourself).
All of the flavor of an entire plant is condensed into each microgreen stem and set of leaves, which makes them taste like the most radishy radish or mustardy mustard or basily basil you've ever eaten. (You get the idea!) The flavors are most intense when the plants are young, and they mellow a bit as they age (i.e., older and taller).
Quick and Easy
Microgreens are eaten raw, which makes them easy to add to every meal, except perhaps dessert (although the milder varieties like broccoli and kohlrabi blend in really well in fruit smoothies, so that sort of counts). We have other ideas on how to use microgreens on our FAQs page.
Our microgreens go the extra mile! All of the seeds are non-GMO, and some are organic and/or heirloom varieties. They are locally-grown in Hanover County, Virginia inside our home. We started on our dining room table, and in 2022, we converted a spare bedroom into our farm/grow room. Our microgreens are free from pesticides, and because the seeds are planted on top of the soil, they do not need to be washed before eating. As an added bonus, they come to you! We'd love to be your go-to resource in RVA for delivery of fresh, living microgreens.
On the Horizon
At the moment, we have a few pages hidden from sight that aren't quite ready to share, so please come back every now and then to check out our progress!
