They are vegetables, greens mostly, harvested when they are 10 to 20 days old. We cut our microgreens above the root around the time the first true leaf appears.  Depending on the season, we grow sunflowers, peas, kale, broccoli, collards, arugula, mizuna, tatsoi, several mustards, two kinds of radish, beets, amaranth, and others. Microgreens are an excellent source of nutrients (minerals, antioxidants, proteins, and vitamins) and the flavor of the vegetable is concentrated.  Find out in here the nutritional value  of microgreens!

Available in local stores, at Nash's Organic Farm Store, Country Aire Market and at our Front Porch box.


​My mother grew marigolds in the foothills of the French Alps and saved seeds

from year to year.

When she died, Michael 

asked me to bring

him back something

of hers. The one thing

I could think of was 

these. Michael has been

planting them each year around our garden.

You can EAT microgreens alone as a

snack, stir-fried, tossed with salads, stuffed in tortillas, juiced anytime, dropped into soup, piled on sandwiches, thrown on pizzas...

In a world where  everything can be found with a click of the mouse, we encourage you to BUY LOCAL, close to home whenever you can.
We aim to be as SUSTAINABLE as possible: we repurpose, recycle, and reuse as much as we can.

​“Because microgreens are harvested right after germination, all the nutrients they need to grow are there. ... and the FLAVOR and texture is also good." Researcher Qin Wang, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland.
