Our newest co-op partner is a local microgreens farmer from Kelly Greens. He grows his microgreens with organic practices to make for the freshest, finest and healthiest greens out there.
I am personally so, so excited to have him. My body craves this delicious super food so I clearly need to add this greens health benefit to my diet. I have enjoyed them on salads with olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper. It is PERFCT with any meal and makes me feel so good. So I am so, so happy to have direct access and a bit of a discount through the co-op! Please support this local farmer too!
Currently, he sells his greens at natural grocery stores for $5 for 2oz or $20 for 10oz, but now he is offering our group a deal on microgreens directly through the co-op for a better price.
Please note: this is 10oz by WEIGHT not VOLUME, so this is a very dense container with many healthful servings!
