We Specialize in Growing Organic Salad Variety Microgreens
It was quite a task to find the best sources for certified organic seeds, soil and soil amendments.
Once we had the raw materials it took countless tests to refine the growing process for each variety.
We chose these five varieties first and foremost for their nutrient profiles as well as their individual color, texture and flavor profiles.
Each variety is a unique living food that fully embodies why microgreens are highly regarded super foods among health experts.
Since the average crop cycle is 10 days, we're constantly experimenting with new organic seeds so that we can offer our CSA members weekly farmer's specials so that there's a constant variety and diversity both nutritionally as wells as culinarily.
Sunshine Peak - Sunflower Shoots
Sunflower microgreens (aka sunflower shoots) are are clearly one of the most popular micros we grow at the farm!
You might be surprised to learn sunflower shoots are loved by kiddos (of all ages)!
Oddly enough...snacking on a bowl of sunnies is similar in feel to eating french fries. Of course without the greasy mess or significant health risk.
Sunflower micros are substantial in size. They're crunchy, sweet, a bit tangy and are not only totally yummy...but they're packed with live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and countless essential nutrients that can help to counter the negative effects of stress, harsh environmental conditions that everyone is exposed to daily, help to fight free-radicals and organically support your over-all health and wellbeing.
PS...it might be best if you don't mention the health benefits to your kiddos!
Sunflower shoots are not only one of the most popular microgreens but they're also one of the most versatile.
Sunflower shoots are my absolute go to for a fast, easy, convenient, crisp, refreshing and totally delicious snack any time of the day or evening.
They're a stunning garnish and will elevate not only the appearance but also the nutritional value of any dish.
Sunnies are stand-outs in salads and a hearty addition to your favorite green smoothies.
Pikes Peak - Peas Shoots
Pea shoots are a bit wild looking with their curly tendrils...yet they're sweet and make a fantastic salad base.
Simply grab a handful of pea shoots and cut them with a pair of chef's scissors or chop them into smaller pieces to make it easier to eat.
Putting them whole on a plate can be not only a beautiful, irresistible finger food but a super healthy choice for a side dish that couldn't be faster or more convenient to serve.
Pea shoots also make a great late morning or afternoon snack.
While the entire shoot is completely edible and totally scrumptious...gourmet chefs like to use the upper portions of pea shoots because the tendrils and delicate deep green leaves make for an elegant garnish to compliment any dish!
Little Bear Peak - Buckwheat Microgreens
Buckwheat microgreens...aka "buckies" around our farm...are my go to every morning for my ultimate wake up - super food green smoothy.
Start your day off with a high octane green smoothy which to me is the ultimate energy drink to energize your body, mind and spirit.
Dr. Anne Wigmore who many call the mother of the live food revolution has a famous green smoothy recipe that she called energy soup.
Keep in mind...this was in the 1970's...long before smoothies became popular.
Buckwheat microgreens are also a great salad base. They have a nutty flavor and stunning white stems with hints of pink adding vibrant color to any plate!
Buckies are a far more nutritious choice than adding lettuce to any sandwich, wrap or burger.
Red Cloud Peak - Radish Microgreen Mix
If you like adding spice to your food you're going to LOVE topping your favorite egg, fish, meat or veggie dishes with these action packed, nutrient dense vibrant radish microgreen mix.
This mix is widely used on sandwiches, wraps, burgers, avocado toast and salads.
Don't let their modest size fool you. A little goes a long way!
Our Red Cloud Peak - Radish Microgreen Mix is a bright, bold mixture grown from several varieties of certified organic radish microgreens.
Each variety was carefully tested and selected for its outstanding color, texture, leaf size, and variety of intense flavors ranging from mild pepper to pretty dang zippy.
One of the chefs we grow for calls this mix - Radish Blush...
and I think it's an absolutely perfect name!
It's interesting to me that each of these varieties on its own is nowhere near as inviting and enjoyable as is this unique blend.
This mix will add vibrant color and intriguing spice to any dish.
Most people simply view radish micros as adding radiant color and spicy flavors...
and yet radiish microgreens are well known for their unique nutritional profiles and practical use to support folks who are experiencing a wide variety of health challenges.
Not only is the flavor a culinary adventure but they light up the palette and hit all your senses.
If you're paying attention...you might wonder how they'll hit your sense of hearing?
Anyone you serve these high vibe, high intensity microgreens to is sure to have a unique comment in their first bite.
I like putting these on the top of a salad or micro mix garnish. In part because they definitely are the winner of the microgreen beauty pageant but I've found most people (me too) can't resist picking up some microgreens off the top before picking up utensils (I know...where are my table manners???). Microgreens are unassuming and they'll often catch your mouth by surprise bringing a heightened level of excitement to your meal.
Blanca Peak - Broccoli Microgreens
Broccoli microgreens are the rock star of the microgreen world. Microgreens as a whole are regarded as the ultimate live food...in terms of their potent nutrient density and live enzymes.
Broccoli gets a lot of hype and rightfully so. Joe Rogan's podcast is largely the source of all the buzz which I think is absolutely amazing free press!
An excerpt from this interview with Dr Rhonda Patrick is available on YouTube - Click here to watch an excerpt from this insightful interview.
Keep in mind...microgreens that are grown in organic soil are safer than sprouts AND are far more nutrient dense.
The TWO most FAQs
The 2 most frequently asked questions I receive are...
What exactly are microgreens?
What do I do with them?
Which is to say...
how do I eat them?
Organic Microgreens, grown in organic soil, with real sunlight are some of the most nutrient dense foods on this planet!
Never before has nutrition been as vitally important as it is today.
COVID-19 was a health wake-up call for a lot of people around the world.
Suddenly being over weight and out of shape as well as having any of the many health challenges that run rampant in our societies these days...many of which are completely correctable with diet and life-style changes...having these meant that COVID-19 could be life threatening.
I started helping people with their health in the 90's when we lived in NYC.
First in a private nutrition practice and later I was co-founder of an integrative wellness center.
I've since moved onto exploring the world of energy medicine and yet food and nutrition continues to be a big part of personal and professional life.
I've been eating organic live foods which are primarily microgreens, wheat and barley grass and sprouts.
I have often thought...if I had to...I could live on microgreens. They're that nutrient dense, nutritionally well rounded and completely nourishing.
I can grow them 52 weeks a year ensuring I have the same crops available in every season. I can simply change up the varieties to ensure I'm getting maximum nutrition and a balance of live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients in each meal.
