We met Mary Ackley and the Little Wild Things folks at farmers markets. Their less-than-one acre farm is located just down the way from the pickle factory. Little Wild Things specializes in soil-grown microgreens, shoots and edible flowers that are Certified Naturally Grown. They’re out to prove that urban landscapes can foster environmentally sustainable commercial farms, and to show that farming is a desirable career for the next generation.
Nutritional value: Microgreens are little powerhouses that contain up to 40 percent higher levels of nutrients (especially vitamins K, C and E, plus lutein and beta-carotene) than their mature counterparts.Storage and serving suggestions: Store in an airtight container in the fridge, where they’ll keep for three to four weeks. Microgreens are packed with flavor. Add them to a salad or sandwich, tossed with fresh lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt. They are also known to brighten up any dish you toss them on.
