Microgreens in Kerikeri and Bay of Islands

Microgreens are a popular health food, and for good reason: they are more nutrient dense than their fully mature counterparts. Read more about microgreens nutrition here – you will be surprised at just how good these tiny little plants are for you.

Because microgreens are so nutrient dense, it means that just a few servings of microgreens in your diet can really help boost your health.

The microgreens range from Leaf Produce is spray-free, and grown in the glorious natural daylight of the Bay of Islands, rather than LED or fluorescent lights, which is the industry standard.

No wonder our microgreens are bursting with flavour, with all that lovely light!

Microgreens range as at June/July 2022

All our microgreens are currently grown to order in large trays, using certified organic potting mix.

Note: Microgreens seeds are affected by global supply and shipping issues. I do keep a reasonable stock of seeds at hand, but it's out of my hands if the seeds aren't available in New Zealand.
