Nutrition


Microgreens are packed with nutrients! They are an incredible super food, containing high levels of vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, protein, fiber, Omegas, B-complex, and much more.  A daily dose of microgreens will help your body and mind feel strong and alert.


Microgreens help protect your body from the harmful effect of free radicals.  


Eating living foods boosts your energy levels dramatically.  This is why we list our harvest date on all of our packages.


Micro Brassicas, like Broccoli for example, contain high levels of Sulforaphane, which has positive effects on cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, gastric diseases, and is being researched for its effects on Autism.  It is produced when the enzyme myrosinase transforms glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate, into sulforaphane upon damage to the plant, such as from chewing, which allows the two compounds to mix and react. Young  broccoli and cauliflower microgreens are particularly rich in glucoraphanin.


Leafy Greens in general help to promote healthy blood clotting, lower cholesterol, good vision, higher energy levels, and healthier skin. 


Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.



Our focus, as a company, is not only on how to grow food in a fully sustainable way, but also on how to make sure that we are growing some of the healthiest and most nutritiously dense food on the market.  High quality, nutritiously dense, food is produced by giving a plant species the ideal growing environment and organic food source.  We rely entirely on the beneficial micro-organisms in our soil to help break down our organic inputs, turning them into food for the plants. It is very important that the plants are harvested at the ideal time of the day, ensuring the highest moisture and nutritional content. It is also critical that once the food is harvested, it is stored at the proper temperatures and delivered to the customer within 24 hours.
