Hugs Urban Farm is proud to announce an exciting new local food delivery program. Freshly grown microgreens, delivered to your door, year round – on a cancel-anytime subscription basis. And during the main growing season, each delivery will include 1-2 other greens from our farm such as salad mix, herbs, kale, swiss chard, collard greens, arugula, spinach, or braising mix.
Microgreens are young plant shoots around 7-20 days old. They are tender and packed with flavor and nutrition. In fact, a 2012 nutritional analysis study by the University of Maryland found that microgreens were 4-40 times more nutrient-dense than their mature counterparts (https://agnr.umd.edu/news/mighty-microgreens). So eating a cup of radish microgreens is similar to eating 30-40 cups of mature radishes, as they were some of the most nutritious in the study. Subscribe and throw out your multi-vitamins!
