Why are more chefs using Fresh Origins microgreens than any other grower in the country? The answer is simple; quality and selection. Because of the mild, sunny weather in San Diego, our products are grown with care, in ideal conditions. Choose Fresh Origins and experience the difference in color, texture and taste for your finest plate presentations.
Superior Growing Climate
Sunny, mild San Diego, California is the ideal setting for growing perfect microgreens. Fresh Origins greenhouses take advantage of every ray of sun from the San Diego sky. And while other farmers struggle with adverse climates to produce their microgreens, our ideal climate allows us to grow vibrant microgreens 365 days a year. The biggest challenge growing microgreens in other parts of the country is the variable climate. There will be certain times when the weather is good, and it is possible to grow a very nice microgreen. But, when it’s cold and cloudy it will require lots of greenhouse heating and the microgreens can be soft and stringy due to a lack of sunshine. When it’s too hot and humid the microgreens can be susceptible to disease and are usually weak and stretched out. Both conditions result in a loss of color, flavor and shelf life. Because Microgreens are so young and tender, they do best in a consistently mild, sunny climate. The constant San Diego sun means that our microgreens are receiving more nourishment every day which leads to better color, texture, and improved leaf expansion. Our microgreens are thicker, stronger, more flavorful, and have an extended shelf life. The perfect climate allows us to produce the most diverse selection of microgreens available anywhere.
Attention to Detail
The staff of Fresh Origins tends to our crop daily, hand watering and harvesting the microgreens at the perfect moment for the freshest, crispest, and most vibrant microgreens possible. We then carefully package and ship our microgreens so they arrive at your restaurant at the height of their freshness. You can be assured that every microgreen you place with care on your plates has been hand harvested and packed with the same care and attention to detail that you demand in your kitchen.
Fine dining chefs throughout the country are finding that there is no reason to sacrifice quality, selection and taste by using locally grown microgreens that are stringy and stretched with pale tiny leaves. Combining San Diego’s perfect climate with our careful attention to detail in growing and harvesting, has created a major quality advantage for Fresh Origins’ customers.
