Happy and Healthy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2020 is a great year for all and we can achieve our goals and aspirations to the fullest degree. As I reflect on the past year, I want to give thanks to all those who have helped Farm Doc Microgreens to grow in the Chippewa Valley. Thanks to you we have been able to bring fresh microgreens to many places including the farmers markets, restaurants, retail stores and our home delivery. Your support also allowed me to compete and win the 2019 Eau Claire Area Economic Development Corporation Idea Challenge. My deepest gratitude to you and I will continue to strive to bring you fresh microgreens throughout the year. As you may have read, plant based diets are proving to be a healthy way to lose and/or maintain a healthy weight. The benefits are many and this does not mean you only eat vegetables. The Mediterranean diet has been shown in both large population studies and randomized clinical trials to reduce risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, certain cancers (specifically colon, breast, and prostate cancer), depression, and in older adults, a decreased risk of frailty, along with better mental and physical function. Many of the microgreens we grow supply you with concentrated amounts of vitamins, minerals and protein. Broccoli has anti-cancer phytonutrients and has been shown to help with weight loss. Buckwheat is being studied as a strong antiinflammatory food. These are just a few of the benefits from adding microgreens to your daily diet. Have a Happy and Healthy New Year and see you at the markets.

Farm Doc Microgreens are locally grown in Strum, WI. The micros are grown in a controlled environment with non-GMO, organic seeds using clean soil, adequate hydration and ventilation. They are hand harvested using sterile procedures, packed and delivered fresh to the farmers market, your favorite restaurant or store or directly to your home.
