Harvesting: Lettuce, Swiss Chard & Some Sneak Peaks!

Microgreen Beds

Microgreens at Various Stages

We’ve had some time now to raise some good crops, try our veggies and develop a schedule for how we’ll grow to begin our initial distributions.  Today we have a peak into what we’re harvesting and what we’re growing.

We prepare a home made soil that was researched and developed for months.  We tested it with various seeds and attempted to make it as nutritious as possible.  Created from all organic matter, it has become the pillar of our growing success.  Once planted, our micro greens become effortless.  We also collect rain water and add nutrients for a potent watering system.

We’re on track to begin offering samples to the community at large next week and will begin talks with local restaurants and cafes to begin regular distribution.

Microgreens are extremely nutritious and offer a different taste than their fully matured counterparts.

In our family, we are now able to add vegetables to salads that our kids would otherwise not eat as they blend with and enhance the flavour of other greens so tastefully.

We can’t wait to let you know which local restaurants are supporting this initiative!
