Microgreens contain 40-60% higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts.

They can be used like sprouts as a garnish, salad sandwiches, soups, stirfries, pizza, and even on hamburgers! Stock up on microgreens from our coolers at either store location.

     

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 microgreens

In 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.
 

Milaeger's Super Greens Salad Mix is a beautiful mix containing the following: red and green romaine lettuce, red and green oakleaf lettuce, red and green leaf lettuce, butterhead lettuce, crisphead lettuce, kale, spinach, chard, sorrel, mustard, tatsoi, hon tsai tai, mizuna, and endive! This healthy mix is harvested and packaged with no preservatives and are grown using organic methods. A four ounce package container is a perfect size for four side salads!

Free tours are welcome at any time through the greenhouses at the Racine location!
