Heritage Prairie Farm is located in Elburn, Illinois, just 40 miles west of Chicago. The roots of the farm were planted in 2006 and the doors to the farm store first opened in 2007.
Throughout the year, Heritage Prairie Farm grows specialty produce items during all four seasons, in heated greenhouses. These include MicroGreens for grocery stores, market, & restaurant sales.
The Evolution of MicroGreens:
In the winter of 2007, the very first crop of MicroGreens were planted. Within a short period of time, our MicroGreens were being sold at farmers markets and used in several restaurants such as Marriott Chicago,
The Finery, and Sovereign.
By 2010, Heritage Prairie Farm MicroGreens were one of the first Midwest farms to make MicroGreens commercially available to consumers at retail outlets like Whole Foods Market in the Chicago-land area.
