When it comes to sourcing microgreens, the choices available might seem overwhelming. You may encounter local vendors growing them in their basements or garages, but is this the best option for your health and taste buds? In this blog, we'll explore why purchasing microgreens from a specialized farm like The People's Farm is not only safer but also offers superior quality.

The Controlled Environment Advantage:

At The People's Farm, we harness state-of-the-art technology to create the perfect conditions for growing microgreens. This controlled environment agriculture (CEA) allows us to regulate every aspect of the growing process - from light exposure to temperature, water, and humidity. This precision ensures consistently high-quality, naturally grown microgreens. In contrast, basement or garage setups often lack this level of control, which can lead to inconsistent quality and potential health risks due to unregulated growing conditions.

Hemp Mats - Beyond Organic Farming:

One of our unique practices is the use of hemp mats for cultivation. Traditional organic farming relies on soil free from herbicides and pesticides. However, we've taken a step further by eliminating soil use, reducing the risk of soil-borne diseases and pests. This approach not only makes our microgreens beyond organic but also ensures a cleaner and purer product than what might be grown in less controlled, soil-based environments like basements or garages.

The Power of Water and Oxygen:

Another significant difference is our exclusive use of water and oxygen in the cultivation process. Microgreens thrive in oxygen-rich environments, which is antagonistic to pathogens and mold. Our cutting-edge nano bubble machine infuses oxygen into the irrigation water, creating an environment conducive to growing the finest quality microgreens. This method is something rarely achievable in home-based setups, which may result in lower quality and potential safety concerns.

Conclusion:

Choosing The People's Farm for your microgreens ensures you're getting a product that's not only safe but superior in quality. Our beyond-organic practices, coupled with our commitment to controlled environment agriculture, set us apart from home growers. When it comes to your health and enjoyment, choosing microgreens from a specialized farm like ours is a clear win.
