What are Microgreens?

Our microgreens are tiny edible greens that provide exceptional flavor, nutritional value, texture, and color to salads, sandwiches, wraps, tacos, pizza, smoothies, soup, and more. Smaller than “baby greens,” and harvested later than “sprouts,” microgreens provide a variety of leaf flavors, such as sweet and spicy, and come in many vibrant colors. Fine dining chefs use microgreens to enhance the beauty, taste, and freshness of their dishes with their delicate textures and distinctive flavors.

Researchers at the USDA Agricultural Research Service and the University of Maryland began studying the nutritional content of microgreens in 2012. They looked at four groups of vitamins and other phytochemicals – including vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene — in 25 varieties of microgreens. The researchers found that leaves from nearly all of the microgreens had four to six times more nutrients than the mature leaves of the same plant, with variation among the varieties – red cabbage was highest in vitamin C, while the green daikon radish microgreens had the most vitamin E.

Our Growing Practices

Our microgreens, shoots, and edible flowers are Certified Naturally Grown (CNG), which means that we use organic growing methods and never use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or GMOs. We also use biologically intensive agriculture principles to sustainably achieve high yields from our very small growing space. As a first generation farm, we are constantly researching innovations in farming, trying new techniques, and learning as we grow.

Some of our favorite models and farmers from whom we’ve learned include: Green City Acres (Curtis Stone) in Kelowna, British Colombia, Les Jardins de la Grelinette (Jean Martin-Fortier) in Quebec, Polyface Farms in Swope, VA, and the SPIN Farming models.

We source our compost locally from Veteran Compost and buy the majority of our seeds from these great seed companies: Johnny’s Selected Seeds (ME); Mountain Valley Seeds (UT); Todd’s Seeds (MI); and Southern Exposure Seed Exchange (VA).

Selected Restaurants and Partners:

Our veggies are often on the menu at these great restaurants, catering menus, and markets around the neighborhood!

When you see our vegetables on a local D.C. menu they were usually harvested just hours (or minutes in the case of microgreens!) before getting to your plate. We can’t thank our partners enough for their continued support of local farms!
