Microgreens From Belden Farm


Microgreens are an amazing food!  Not only are they packed with nutrition (up to 40 times more than the adult version of the plant) they provide an explosion of flavor to whatever dish they are a part of.   Think of them like salt or pepper they enhance the taste of whatever they are a part of, while secretly adding tons of vitamins and minerals.
