What is a Microgreen?
Microgreens are vegetable greens harvested just after the cotyledon (first two) leaves have developed. They contain 4-40x the amount of nutrients as their full-grown counterparts and can be eaten cooked or raw. Microgreens are full of flavor and can add sweetness or spiciness to foods! They are NOT sprouts, which are younger and grown in a closed, damp environment. Our greens are grown in coconut coir and receive plenty of light and airflow!
What will I receive with my subscription?
You will receive your custom order of a single crop, or the house blend, which currently includes a combination of Sunflower, Pea, Rambo Radish, Broccoli, and Salad Mix. They will be delivered fresh to your door ready to eat! Subscribers also get their microgreens at a discounted rate, and will be the first to sample new crops and other offerings!
Do I need to be home for my delivery?
You do not need to be home for your delivery. We ask that you please leave a cooler with an ice pack by your front door or other obvious place in front of your house to use for drop off. In the cooler months, the cooler is optional.
How should I store my Microgreens?
Cut microgreens must be kept refriderated to stay fresh! You may add a paper towel to your container to keep them fresher longer, and we recommend keeping them in the "crisper" drawer or towards the front of your refrigerator. If they get too cold, they will get soggy. Rinse only what you are about to eat to keep the pack fresher longer! When stored properly, they will last 7-10 days.
What can I use Microgreens for?
Microgreens can add extra flavor, nutriton, and visual appeal to any dish! Try blending them in your smoothies, as a pizza topping, garnish for your soup, or in a salad! Follow us on Instagram @mcnabbmicrofarm for more recipe ideas.
