About Our Greens
The benefits of microgreens are becoming widely known. In addition to being a low-carb, nutrient-dense superfood, the intense flavors and creative opportunities that these tiny greens afford are a boon to any kitchen and to your health! Recent studies have shown microgreens contain anywhere from 4-40 times the vitamins and minerals when compared to their mature forms. One sure way to get enough nutrition into your body in a biochemical available form is a steady diet of microgreens.
Microgreens make a great addition to any number of dishes, and the sunflower and pea shoots make a surprisingly substantial salad base. For the creative chef at home or in the restaurant kitchen, the vibrant colors and intricate shapes of microgreens make even the dullest of plates pop with flare. And don’t be afraid to add microgreens to your green smoothies, soups, pestos, etc. The opportunities are virtually endless with this incredible superfood!
Easier Pick-Ups at The Grove (coming soon!)
Thanks to all of the support I’ve gotten over the years within the microgreens realm, I’ve decided to augment the microgreens/indoor growing infrastructure at The Grove. To that end, I’ve been busy building out and finishing a grow room in our barn, which is going to greatly improve grow conditions and potential. This room will also soon serve as the location for pick-ups at The Grove, which will make pick-ups easier, being much closer to the road, and should alleviate any sort of apprehension for those thinking they’re walking into someone’s home to pick up their greens, as may have been the case in the past. We’re starting to segregate and separate all the farm operations and infrastructure at The Grove!
Greener Options – Mason Jar Microgreens Containers
The Grove microgreens membership is now even greener! Members now have the option to provide their own Mason jars for microgreens packaging and can now be 100% consumer-waste free. If I ever don’t get jars in time, I’ll simply package greens in the normal recyclable bags. Whenever you pick-up greens or I drop them off, make sure you drop off clean jars with lids with your name on them, or have them ready for me to pick up, and I’ll package next weeks’ greens in your jars. Wide-mouthed quart jars are a good size for small-sized Aurora Mixes or about 3-4 ozs. of sunflower, to give you an idea of volume needs.
Why should I try the Microgreens CSA Program from The Grove?
As an athlete, health professional, and lover of healthy food, I am thrilled to have access to fresh, nutrient-dense, locally grown micro greens year-round. The Grove offers a wonderful variety of micro greens that can be incorporated into any (and every) meal. I particularly love toast topped with smashed avocado and sunflower micro greens for breakfast! I feel so lucky that The Grove’s micro greens CSA is now available to Anchorage residents.
Fresh, local, beautiful micro greens! Graham and Mindy have produced for us some of the best micro greens I have ever tried. They have beautiful color, great taste and the quantities we need. As an added bonus they are now running their operation all year round. Since I have made the switch to some of their products - Sunflower for our veggie burger and radish for our curry - I have heard nothing but great feedback from our guests. I also like to bring in other varieties from time to time for specials or beer dinners, most recent was arugula. Great people, fresh and beautiful greens and local. Can’t ask for much more as a chef.
Microgreens from the Grove have changed my life! They are so good and delicious. I look forward to my delivery day each week. Not only are they healthy and nutritious, but they are beautiful and grown with love. I wish everyone could experience the great colors, textures, and flavors of these greens. They are amazing! I use them in salads, smoothies, stir fry dinners, or just plain, right out of the bag. My whole family loves them. We are so lucky!
