Microgreens are just tiny vegetables, larger than sprouts such as our beloved bean sprouts (tau-gay). but much smaller than baby salad leaves. They are usually harvested when the first pair of true leaves start to grow (the first leaves you see are seed leaves aka cotyledons).
How do I eat microgreens?
Microgreens are tastiest and most nutritious when consumed raw, do make sure that you give them a good rinse in clean water after harvesting. Use them as garnishes on any dishes and soups, add them to your salad mixes, in sandwiches, as microgreen salad sides, blend them into smoothies, the sky is the limit!
Are microgreens good for (insert name of medical condition)?
Microgreens contain a wide variety of vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants and other nutrients that are essential to a healthy body, and may offer protective benefits against many ailments. Incorporating microgreens into your diet will no doubt offer plenty of health benefits. However, they are not miracle remedies, and it will be unethical for us to suggest so. When in doubt, speak with your doctor and registered nutritionist!
Medicinal & Gourmet Mushrooms
Do you grow these mushrooms? How?
Yes, we do! We grow them indoors in a climate controlled environment to produce consistent, quality mushrooms. We start the journey by culturing the mycelium (the beginning stage of any mushroom, like nurturing seeds in a nursery) in our sterile lab. We then sterilize the growing medium and spawn per health & safety guidelines, allow them to colonize the blocks, and then move them to our grow rooms to produce your amazing mushrooms.
What if I want a type of mushroom that I don’t see you currently grow?
Contact us! We typically carry several varieties and strains of gourmet mushrooms in spore form and can be put into the growing process quickly. Lead time can range from 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on the type of mushroom you are looking for.
