What are Micro-greens?
They are tiny edible greens grown from seeds of vegetables and herbs harvested at their most nutritious and delicious state - full of concentrated nutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Micro-greens are not sprouts.
Unlike sprouts micro-greens have leaves. Sprouts are germinated seeds- the first stage of plant growth. After soaking in water sprouts grow up to 2 days in darkness before they are harvested from their container. This warm, dark, moist environment can grow unwanted bacteria that may cause serious illness which is why the FDA warns against eating raw sprouts.
Micro-greens are like baby greens just smaller. Like baby greens they are seeded in soil, watered, grown with light, good air circulation and harvested just above the soil line. Micro-greens have more intense flavors and colors than sprouts or baby greens due to their higher concentrations of nutrients. According to the USDA's Agricultural Research Service at equal weights micro-greens can contain from five up to forty times more nutrients than the leaves of their mature plants.
Why should I eat micro-greens?

How do we grow our micro-greens?
We source our seeds from companies that sell non-GMO safe seeds specified for growing micro-greens .
We grow our greens in organically certified soil in a climate controlled environment, year-round. We do not use chemicals or fertilizers as most micro-greens get everything they need from seed, soil, water and light. Our greens are grown under cool temperature LED lighting allowing us to produce a consistent product. Each crop is grown in fresh soil (we never re-use soil). Once harvested we recycle the soil into our herb and flower gardens.
How long will my delivered micro-greens last?
Your micro-greens are exceptionally fresh as they are harvested the day before (sometimes the same day) of delivery providing you with superior quality and nutrition. These living foods are inherently fresh because they are alive and best used within 7 days. Keep in your vegetable crisper to extend the life of your greens.
