Located in Grand Island, Nebraska, we are a small family farm specializing in some of the most nutrient dense food know to man, microgreens. We grow indoors year round so you can always have access to fresh healthy produce. Although not U.S.D.A. certified organic, our microgreens are grown using only organic seed, organic soil and organic methods. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used.
Why did you start growing & selling microgreens?
I started growing microgreens for personal health reasons. In 2012, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. For several years I tried medication after medication hoping for some relief from the symptoms, but I never found any relief with prescription drugs. This lead me down a rabbit hole for a couple years trying any vitamin or nutritional supplement that sounded promising. This became expensive ($100 or more a month) and still no relief. After doing some research I found that some of the formulas in vitamin and nutritional supplements are absorbed by the body, and some are not. Nutrients are most potent when then come from food, so I needed a superfood. Early 2019, I came across information on the amazing nutritional benefits of microgreens, and I immediately started researching how to grow them. By March 2019, I had supplies and started growing my own microgreens. Within a couple weeks I had noticeable improvement. Less fatigue and less inflammation. I then realized that microgreens are something that people need access to.
About the owner:
As a child I grew up working the family produce farm and I have always had a passion for growing things. Since 2005 I've had my own backyard garden growing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, green beans, okra, squash, lettuce, kale, broccoli, carrots, strawberries, and lots of flowers and herbs. For years I have been trying to find ways to grow indoors since gardening is very seasonal in Nebraska. In 2018, I started experimenting with indoor aquaponics hoping to grow greens for my family. This was fun, but it was wasn't producing as much as I needed. In February 2019, I started growing microgreens. It didn't take long for me to realize that everyone needs access to these fresh healthy superfoods year round. I really enjoy growing microgreens and eating them in all different kinds of foods.
