Growing philosophy

Soil-based: Though you can get plenty of greens and lettuces from hydroponic production, growing in rich, organic soil ensures the availability of micronutrients, and maximizes flavor.

Harvest and Delivery: Vegetables lose nutritional value at an exponential rate after harvest. I immediately place our greens in a chilling ice bath after cutting, and after a second and third rinse, get them to you as fast as possible. The structure and taste of the greens will last weeks, but you should be giving your body greens harvested within hours–or no more than a few days.

Organic fertility and pest control: Because baby and micro greens are so tender and fragile, I grow them in a small greenhouse and a long hoop house. This offers them protection from potential pests. The soil is fertilized with organic compost, worm castings and teas.
