ARCA Organics Microgreens
We grow a variety of organic microgreens, sold by the flat or by the pound. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, microgreens are packed with flavor, from nutty (sunflower sprouts) to spicy (radish sprouts) and are a wonderful, colorful addition to salads, sandwiches, and more!
CUSTOM ORDERS A variety of microgreens can be custom grown in 10 inch by 10 inch and 10 inch by 20 inch flats. They are also available cut and bagged. Inquiries for orders occur twice a week on Monday and Thursday and deliveries are on Tuesday and Friday or by prior arrangement.
According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Maryland and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, microgreens contain anywhere from 4 to 40 times as much of a particular nutrient than a mature plant since the plant is harvested before all the food contained in the seed is used to fuel the growth of a mature plant. Many of the plants grown as microgreens are already considered superfoods at their maturity, so this makes their micro-versions SUPER-superfoods.
Microgreens are often confused with sprouts but are significantly different because sprouts are grown only using water, whereas microgreens are grown with soil. Microgreens absorb minerals from the soil as they grow and undergo more photosynthesis than sprouts, increasing their nutritional content.
