Mama Knows Best Microgreens
Mama Knows Best Microgreens is a small local indoor vertical farm run by a mother-daughter duo out of Boise, Idaho.
They started growing microgreens for themselves while food sources were sparse during the beginning of the
pandemic. They opened their farm in May of 2021 in a 400 sq. ft. garage and now find themselves in a 2,000 sq. ft. shop providing fresh microgreens to the Treasure Valley.
They are committed to delivering top-quality products, educating the community, as well as encouraging healthy lifestyle choices. Their microgreens are grown indoors, where they keep a clean and controlled environment year-round!
What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are the superfood superheroes. Microgreens are the young seedlings of vegetables and herbs. As seedlings, a University of Maryland study has shown that they pack up to 40X more vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients than the adult plant. They are harvested with the seed’s original leaves intact, very soon after these first true leaves emerge.
Microgreens are an extremely sustainable way to get your nutrition, and Mama Knows Best Microgreens believes sourcing microgreens locally year-round is an excellent way to give back to your body, community, and environment.
