Greens to Grow List

Dan and Joan Milaeger started growing in 1960 with one small greenhouse filled with tomatoes.  It's been a truly growing business that has expanded to 92 greenhouses. 

Greenhouse of microgreensIn 2013, Milaeger's wanted to grow in a much different way.  They wanted to be able to grow and supply local restaurants and markets with good, healthy, local food.  They currently have one greenhouse dedicated to over 15 different lettuce varieties and another section of a greenhouse for microgreens and wheatgrass.  They are continuing to build and grow their efforts by reaching out to local communities.  New workshops and educational seminars are being offered to teach others how to grow their own microgreens and lettuce for personal use.

Sunflower microgreens are a perfect source of complete protein. In fact, they are considered to be the most balanced of all of the sources of essential amino acids. Protein is well known for its ability to repair muscle tissue and aid in enzymatic functions in the body. Sunflower sprouts are high in B vitamins, especially folate. They contain high amounts of vitamin E. Vitamin E works synergistically with vitamin C and selenium to reduce blood pressure, increase the elasticity of arteries and prevent heart disease.  Sunflower microgreens are low in calories and high in nutrition, making them ideal for any natural and healthy fat loss program.
