"An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure."
That is a quote from the great Benjamin Franklin.
When it comes to preventing disease, nothing is more powerful than natural foods such as microgreens! In fact, a group of scientists at the University of Maryland Agriculture & Natural Resources Department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) found that living microgreens have up to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts. These functional foods can help in the prevention and treatment of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Heart Disease and Arthritis, with Cancer being at the forefront of current research studies. In addition, their high nutrient content can help lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, improve digestion, strengthen bones and teeth, improve eyesight, and balance blood sugar!
What Are Microgreens?
Micorgreens unlike sprouts are baby edible plants that take 1-3 weeks from seed to harvest. At such a young stage not only are they nutrient dense, they also exhibit a rich concentrated flavor unlike any vegetable you've ever tried! Very little prep work is needed when it comes to this ingredient. Just wash and add a handful to compliment any dish: breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or just enjoy as a quick healthy snack on the go. Give your kids a handful to play with and snack on and watch them have fun eating their veggies. Incorporating microgreens into your diet will not only make you feel better about what you’re eating but also boost your confidence in the kitchen by using foods you just can’t get in grocery stores.

Thank you for sharing our passion for Nutrition!
Hello, I'm Luke DiLorenzo the owner and lead-horticulturist at Valley Microgreens! I started growing microgreens when I increased my knowledge about nutritional health in college. After learning about the potency of microgreens and their nutritional values, I decided that I should try growing them for myself. By incorporating them into my daily meals, I began transitioning to a whole food, plant based diet. Shortly after, I began sharing them with the wonderful people in my life, and from there, Valley Microgreens was born.
I now live by the famous quote:
"Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food."
"Our mission is to provide the Lehigh Valley with the freshest, tastiest, and most beautiful microgeens possible and to foster our relationships within this community to serve it to the best of our ability."
