What is a Microgreen?

Flowerdale Farm Microgreens (or micro herbs as they are also known) are living baby herb and vegetable sprouts. They contain an intense, vibrant flavour and quality nutrient content. Microgreens offer a fresh alternative to flavouring with herbs, a stylish garnish and an alternative to traditional salads.

Microgreens possess a highly concentrated flavour while maintaining a fresh, delicate and vibrant appearance. They are used to enhance the flavour and aesthetic of any dish.

There is no easier way to add amazing flavour and interest to your meals than by adding fresh living Microgreens. Flowerdale Farm’s living Microgreens can be used as a substitute for cut or dried herbs in any dish. A punnet of living microgreens delivers the same flavour intensity as a whole bunch of mature herbs, but without the woodiness often associated with mature varieties.

Use microgreens to instantly enhance the taste and presentation of any dish including red and white meats, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, side dishes and even desserts.

What’s the advantage of living products?

There is no easier way to add amazing flavour and interest to your meals than by adding fresh herbs and sprouts. Flowerdale Farm’s living products can be used as healthy seasonings, crispy accompaniments or as a base for your main meal. Living products are some of the most versatile ingredients available and have the potential to completely transform a dish, drink or dessert.

Flowerdale Farm’s living products do more than just add incredible flavour to your meals, they also contain properties that are beneficial to your health. Our salads, herbs, sprouts and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. They are also a great source of protein with a high quality nutrient content.

Whilst further research is still required into the role living plants can play in disease prevention and treatment, there is no denying that they are a healthy and convenient ingredient with a lot to offer.
