One of the new products we are producing at Restoration Farm is Micro Greens. We built this new greenhouse addition to our barn so that we can grow our micro greens in a separate area than our Heirloom tomatoes and our other crops.
As the name suggests, microgreens are just miniature plants of greens, herbs or other vegetables. Like sprouts, they are a concentrated nutrient source and packed with beneficial enzymes because of their rapid growth.
Microgreens also (though it is very rare) because they are grown in an open-air environment and in soil. Unlike sprouts, only the stem and leaves are eaten, not the seed and root.
The chefs at our restaurant customers love the freshness and taste of our microgreens and the fact they can be close to the preparation station so that the cooks can easily add them to any plate. We also sell them each Saturday at the Osage Beach Farmers Market.
Here is a slide show of the building of the greenhouse.
