The Microgreen Phenomenon

Before we delve into the story of Penn Grows, let’s understand why microgreens have been causing such a buzz in recent years. Microgreens are essentially young, edible plants harvested at an early growth stage, typically when they’ve just developed their first true leaves. These miniature greens pack a punch when it comes to both flavor and nutrition.

Nutritional Powerhouses: Despite their small size, microgreens are bursting with essential nutrients. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Studies have shown that some microgreens can contain significantly higher concentrations of these nutrients than their mature counterparts.

Culinary Versatility: Microgreens offer a concentrated burst of flavors, ranging from mild and nutty to spicy and peppery. They have a tender and delicate texture, making them a versatile ingredient that can elevate the taste of salads, sandwiches, soups, and more.

Sustainability: Growing microgreens is environmentally friendly, requiring fewer resources like water and space than cultivating mature plants. This sustainability aligns with the growing trend of eco-conscious living.
