We all know we should eat more leafy greens. I was told that for years and I brushed it off for later in life. I mean, who wants to really eat a sad side salad with iceberg lettuce and carrot shavings? No-one does. No-One. But the truth is that leafy greens are trulyContinue reading “Eating Greens Does the Body Good!”

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle on the Farm!
We try to be as sustainable as we can with our farm operations. We reuse trays, compost, and avoid using plastic when possible. The farming industry has become overrun with plastic products, and we’re trying our hardest not to add to that problem. We use plastic trays for our microgreen planting, but re-use them asContinue reading “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle on the Farm!”
