Fresh Greens

Daily Harvests...
Peak Freshness

All of our greens are harvested daily year-round, allowing us to provide you with the most nutritious food harvested at the peak of freshness.  Harvesting all of our lettuce with roots intact, maintains the nutrition and freshness further since it is essentially still living. By the way, we are what we eat. Why not eat and live nutritiously?

What's in your food?

We all know that synthetic chemicals have no right to be in our foods, but it's not as simple as that. These synthetic chemicals used in our current forms of agriculture not only produce foods void of nutrition, but they also destroy the sensitive microbes that allow our soils to thrive and provide the proper nutrients for our food to grow nutritiously. Since we do not use these synthetic chemicals in our production and provide a hospitable environment for these microbes to thrive, they are found in higher concentrations than that found in organically farmed soil.

See for yourself. 

What's Fresh...

BABY HEMP

Description/

Health Benefits

Move over kale and spinach... Hemp is the NEW superfood. Loaded with protein, fiber, antioxidants, and a variety of vitamins and minerals this leafy green is great in smoothies, pressed into raw juice, or mixed in a salad. Raw leaf also contains cannabinoid acids like CBDA (cannabindiolic acid), which have been known to have anti-inflammatory   

properties, functions as an antibacterial, and has links to reducing nausea and vomiting. 

ROMAINE

Description/

Health Benefits

The sturdy dark green leaves with thin but firm ribs down the center make a great base for a crisp salad or a bun-less/lettuce wrap meal. A dieter's dream, romaine lettuce has about 8 calories and 1-2 grams of carbohydrates per cup. Although it's low in fiber, it's high in minerals, such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. This nutrient dense leaf benefits your health by helping to build bones, fight cancer and lowering your cholesterol and risk of depression.

MICRO LEAF

Description/

Health Benefits

We have three leaf styles of our Micro-Leaf variety Oak, Crisp and Butter. Blending all three together makes for a great spring mix with an extended shelf life. The nutrient dense leaves of each variety are packed full of health improving vitamins and minerals such as vitamin c, vitamin K, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. 

BABY KALE

Description/

Health Benefits

Our special blend of baby leaf Lacinato, Red Vein and Green Curly kale gives this mix a kaleidoscope of colors. Great by itself or blended with our other greens for a salad, these tender leaves are easier to eat raw for the added nutrition than mature kale. Kale Can Help Lower Cholesterol, Which May Reduce The Risk of Heart Disease.

GREEN LEAF

Description/

Health Benefits

This lettuce looks as good as it tastes, producing large, loose heads of bright green, curly leaves with a buttery flavor. Even though it is not as nutrient dense as Romaine green leaf is still a nutrient dense choice. For those young eaters who may be a little picky, it also has a milder taste than other greens. Just 1 cup delivers fiber, iron and B vitamins together with a boost of several other vitamins. This leafy green veggie helps fight inflammation and other related diseases like diabetes and cancer.

GREEN BUTTER

Description/

Health Benefits

The leaves may be light green but they still are full of all the vitamins and minerals of our other varieties of lettuce. Small loose-headed greens resembling a flowering rose with tender "buttery" soft leaves provide a sweet flavor for salads and sandwiches.

BABY ARUGULA

Description/

Health Benefits

Arugula's aromatic, peppery flavor can add a wonderful dimension to your salad and your health. High in fiber and antioxidants, and also rich in glucosinolates, which studies show may reduce the risk of developing lung, prostate, breast and pancreatic cancer.

SUMMER CRISP

Description/

Health Benefits

Crisp like Romaine, but sweet and juicy without bitterness this green leaf/icebercross is one of our most popular varieties. Great for a base to any salad mix or as a toping to your favorite sandwich, we know you won't be disappointed with this variety. Very hydrating for those hot summer months it may also keep your heart healthy, lower your cholesterol, lower blood pressure and promote weight loss.

RED BUTTER

Description/

Health Benefits

The reddish purple color leaves are similar to it's lighter colored leaf cousin, but the purple color comes from anthocyanin flavonoids, which function as antioxidants. Small loose-headed greens resembling a flowering rose with tender "buttery" soft leaves provide a sweet flavor for salads and sandwiches.
