This spring we’ve stocked the farmstand with seed sprouting kits from High Mowing Seeds, our organic supplier for crop seed.
In cooler climates like ours, off-season produce is a locavore’s dirty little secret. Much as we passionately believe in a local food economy, we just can’t wait until May for abundant greens! We need the fiber!
Enter seed sprouting. With just a mason jar and ventilation lid, you’ll eat nutrient dense seed sprouts in as little as 2 days. Low in fat and cholesterol-free, sprouts are a great way to ramp up the vitamin content of your food when the winter doldrums take their toll.
Sprouting is a fun activity for kids, who’ll enjoy the taste and crunch of their own project.
Stop by the farmstand and get sprouting!
