Micro's in the Media

Our farm had the pleasure of being featured in the Chicago-land publication Natural Awakenings, February 2014 Issue, this past month! Click here to read our article about MicroGreens!

Just a few years ago, it seemed like nearly no one knew what MicroGreens were, but now I find the MicroGreen awareness growing every day. It's wonderful to see articles and books popping up all over the U.S. about MicroGreens, as well in other parts of the world.

I think that with the research conducted by Gene Lester, Qin Wang, and Zhenlei Xiao in 2012 really exploded a new found interest in MicroGreens. In years past, you probably had to talk to a Chef or a Farmer if you wanted the scoop on MicroGreens, but now that certainly isn't the case.  See the chart below with some statistics from Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
