Two miles from our doors in the basement of a nondescript South Boston corporate complex lives the smallest & closest farm we use, Boston Microgreens. Using state of the art equipment, they are able to grow an incredible amount of microgreens & herbs using organic nutrients & seeds all without any pesticides or herbicides.
We took the opportunity to tour their farm recently and see their micro-farm in person.
Being able to control every aspect of their growing environment, Boston Microgreens is able to grow delicious food with an extremely small physical and carbon impact. Every week, we take delivery of trays of living greens, which we continue to care for before harvesting immediately prior to going onto your plate!
We were lucky enough to spot the tiniest workers Boston Microgreens employees, a ladybug hard at work standing in for chemical pesticides.
Next time you’re enjoying a meal in one of our restaurants, we hope you have a little extra appreciation for the pops of green on your plate!
