How many foods can be grown and sold in under a week? Microgreens are ready to sell 5 to 10 days after germination. Baby greens are harvested less than two weeks after germination. These greens are 1” to 3” long and come in a gorgeous array of colors.
Super Babies “are tiny living pieces of art!” says Farming Turtles CEO Lauri Roberts, and “their flavors are intense, yet delicate.” Chefs love using microgreens as tasty, colorful garnishes. They know that a just a few tiny greens sprinkled over an appetizer or dish will make a big visual impact. A little goes a long way, helping chefs justify the high cost of these greens.
“Myrtle the turtle” is the farm and family mascot. Roberts has cared for Myrtle and other turtles as long as she can remember. Roberts chose this farm name for fun and knew it would be easy to remember.
Farming Turtles’ philosophy is “Always Fresh.” Roberts has experimented and selected her favorite seed varieties and suppliers. Roberts’ loyalty to her best suppliers ensures she can deliver top quality, consistent flavor to her own customers. [Learn more here.]
