Our Microgreens are baby herbs and vegetables grown only to their earliest stage of development when they are the most nutrient dense and flavorful. Throughout the year, we adjust harvesting time per variety to obtain peak flavor and nutrient density.
Put another way, microgreens are "micro" shoots of a parent herb or vegetable, packed with premium flavor and nutrition. Recent studies have found micros to be more nutrient and mineral dense than their mature counterparts. Bright in color and flavor, they make a great garnish, topping, or nutritional supplement to any dish!
Organically and Naturally Grown
We are USDA certified Organic by Clemson University Department of Plant Industry. Therefore, we never use any chemical pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides in our production. No extra “Cides” with your Microgreens! We do not use genetically engineered seeds.
Growing Microgreens on a Large Scale
City Roots has one of the largest microgreens operations in the Southeast, with over 40,000 square feet dedicated to production. We grow a diverse variety year-round and offer specialty varieties, selling them to retailers, chefs, and distributors throughout the region.
Our farm is closed to the public due to COVID-19, but you can still find City Roots Organic Microgreens at your local grocery store.
