Covid19 virus concerns matter to us

we are serious about healthy produce

With the COVID19 concerns going around Fresh Greens Farm wants to let you know about our established food safety guidelines. Our microgreens are Certified Naturally Grown which means we grow with no pesticides and use organic practices on our farm. We also practice USDA food safety practices which includes:

  • All equipment, shelves, trays, and tools are disinfected on a regular basis especially before AND after sowing or harvesting 
  • All workers wash hands before working in grow area or harvesting, after using  the facilities. Hand sanitizer is used when switching tasks.
  • Harvesting is done wearing gloves, head covering, and masks covering the mouth. 
  • Containers are kept clean in a protected area and sanitized before use.
  • We only use organic grow media and organic non-GMO seed in our microgreens
  • All harvested produce is kept at safe temperatures after harvest and during transport

This is nothing new and not in response to the virus pandemic. We believe in good and safe agricultural practices. Health and safety of our customers is what its all about. Microgreens are bursting with nutrition and flavor. Keeping our produce contaminate free and of maximum nutrition is our bottom line. Fresh, local, clean, and delicious.

What are Microgreens?

What are microgreens?

What are they?

Microgreens (micro greens) are a tiny form of young edible greens produced from vegetable, herb or other plants. They range in size from 1″ to 1 ½” long, including the stem and leaves. A Microgreen has a single central stem which has been cut just above the soil line during harvesting. It has two fully developed cotyledon leaves and usually one pair very small, partially developed true leaves.  Microgreens can have surprisingly intense flavors considering their small size.


Microgreens versus Sprouts  

Microgreens are not the same as  sprouts.  Sprouts are simply germinated seeds. What is eaten consists of the seed, root, stem and pale, underdeveloped leaves.  Sprouts are produced entirely in water. The seed is not actually planted. 


Microgreens are not processed in the water. Microgreen seeds are planted and grown in soil or a soil substitute such as peat moss or other fibrous materials. They are ideally grown in bright natural sunshine, with low humidity and natural fresh air. The seed density is a fraction of what is used in sprout processing so each individual plant has space in which to grow and develop. Most varieties require 1-2 weeks growing time, some 4-6 weeks. After the leaves are fully expanded the Microgreens are ready for harvest. They are cut above the soil surface and packed without any roots. Some Microgreens are sold while still growing, rooted in the soil or another growing medium so that they can be cut by the end user. 


The conditions that are ideal for growing Microgreens do not encourage the growth of dangerous pathogens.

About Us

Living our dream

For years I loved gardening but hated weeding.  My first garden was in grade school and it was a total failure.  I had my next in ground garden in 2010.  I was amazed by the power of a seed.  I worked very hard for the summer keeping the garden healthy.  Most things survived. Some did not.  I was hooked.  So much comes from so little.  A true miracle from God!  I have not lost the amazement and just love growing.  I hated weeding though so when I found out about Juice Plus Tower Garden I started hydroponics.  It is so easy!  No weeding.  Few pests.  and it uses the unused vertical space so many homes have but is wasted.  This was in 2014.  Since then I have 5 of them and an entire setup for microgreen production.  No pesticides.  Safe fertilizers on the towers. None in the microgreens.


I have always wanted to be a farmer.  (except when I was 8 and wanted to drive a Coka Cola truck because of the pretty red color) My grandfather was a tobacco farmer in Kentucky.  Being an urban farmer is a dream come true.  I hope you benefit from what we grow.  Produce grown with love.  Microgreens, a powerhouse of nutrition.  Herbs for cooking flare.  Serving you our vegetables is our dream come true 


Thanks 

Karen and Charles Taylor
