Homegrown Microgreens (organic seeds, pesticide free)
Micro-greens are young vegetables and herbs that are approximately 3-7cm tall. They have an aromatic flavour and concentrated nutrient content. They come in a variety of colours & textures. What they lack in size they gain in nutrients often containing higher nutrient levels than mature vegetables. While their nutrient content varies, most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and vitamins A and C.
We cannot claim this is an organic product as it is not certified, but we can say that it is grown naturally and without pesticides.
Here we give you a brief introduction to the varieties we are offering at the moment:
