We started out growing annuals, perennials, shrubs and herbs in the beautiful area of Niagara, and after 20 years, we were looking for something different to expand our family business. Microgreens were added for local restaurants. After much discussion over countless cups of coffee, a decision was made to reach out instead to the people who go to the restaurants and actually eat the microgreens.
After about 3 years of experimenting and making a LOT of compost, the growing directions were finally perfected (we even tried them out with friends who claimed to have a brown thumb), the best growing media was sourced and the seed varieties were chosen. July 2016 UgroGreens was launched.
Good chefs need good ingredients. Welcome to the stage, Microgreens!!!
