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 September 2020
You can find a selection of our microgreens at our market stall, sold as living punnets for $3 each. More varieties will be added later in Spring.
The following shows our full range of microgreens - these can be grown to order in large trays. (Sorry, we don't grow small punnets to order - if you'd like small punnets, the best thing to do is to get to our market stall early for the best selection!)
