The latest about Hometown Acres, microgreens, healthy eating and more.

What exactly is a microgreen?

Microgreens, simply put, are edible seedlings. They are incredibly nutrient dense, approximately 40x that of their fully grown plant counterparts. When you eat microgreens, you are eating hundreds of individual plants that all came from their own seeds. You aren't eating leaves from a plant such as we do when eating salad greens, but baby seedlings in the most vigorous time of their growing period which provide us with dense nutrition that we lack in the industrial world.

Why eat microgeens?

The biggest threat to our health is that we no longer have nutrient dense foods in our local food chain. If you are looking to get real nutrition into your life and provide your body with truly healing foods, it's a difficult task. Visiting your local farm or farmer's market is a great start, but growing your own food at home is where it's at. Microgreens provide us with unparalleled nutrition with a few simple bites while also adding great flavor and color to our home made dishes.
