SIW is Getting into Microgreen Production!
What are microgreens? Microgreens are 10-40 times as nutritious on a pound for pound basis as the same vegetable in its mature state. That is CRAZY! For the health of our customers we are going to get into this very important space. 

·      Microgreens are young vegetable greens that are approximately 1–3 inches tall.
·      They have an aromatic flavor and concentrated nutrient content and come in a variety of colors and textures.
·      Microgreens are considered baby plants, falling somewhere between a sprout and baby green.
Different Types of Microgreens
·       Brassicaceae family: Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, watercress, radish and arugula
·       Asteraceae family: Lettuce, endive, chicory and radicchio
·       Apiaceae family: Dill, carrot, fennel and celery
·       Amaryllidaceae family: Garlic, onion, leek
·       Amaranthaceae family: Amaranth, quinoa swiss chard, beet and spinach
·       Cucurbitaceae family: Melon, cucumber and squash

Microgreens vary in taste, which can range from neutral to spicy, slightly sour or even bitter, depending on the variety. Generally speaking, their flavor is considered strong and concentrated.

Stay tuned for more information on which microgreens we’ll be offering and when these adorable mini veggies will be making their SIW debut at the farm!
