Q: What do you grow?
A: We grow the most delicious Microgreens in Cleveland!
Q: What is a microgreen?
A: Microgreens are the same plants you already know, only harvested very young! They start off just like any other salad green or vegetable, but they are cut and packaged within 2 weeks of seeding. This makes them tiny, flavor packed, mini-salad greens with up to 40 times the nutrient density of their older counterparts!
Q: How do microgreens taste?
A: Microgreens have a fresh, powerful, flavor that is often more intense and enjoyable than the adult plant. Being flavor filled miniature versions, microgreen broccoli, arugula, pea shoots, and radishes taste the same as the adult veggies you know! Sunflowers have a nutty refreshing sweetness. Amaranth is impressively colorful, has an earthy flavor, and is a showy addition to any dish.
