Have you heard about the nutritional power houses called microgreens? You can find a limited variety of microgreens at health food stores and some specialty grocers. Green Wolf Vertical Farm has been selling a wide variety of microgreens since the summer of 2016 starting at the Canyon Farmer’s Market and branching out to local restaurants (Imperial Tap Room, Yellow City Street Food and Crush Wine Bar & Deli).
We feel very strongly that everyone should have access to these tasty, nutritional power houses. So the Green Wolf Vertical Farm Microgreen CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program was born.
What is a CSA?
A farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
The Green Wolf Vertical Farm CSA is containers of microgreens with the ability to “add-on” baskets of greens and vegetables during the Spring/Summer from our greenhouse.
What’s the advantage to you, the consumer?
- Eat ultra-fresh food, with all the flavor and vitamin benefits
- Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking
- Usually get to visit the farm at least once a season
- Find that kids typically favor food from “their” farm â€“ even veggies they’ve never been known to eat
- Develop a relationship
How does it work?
