Microgreens; its all about nutrition, or is it all about taste?

Organic seed, organic soil, grown with love and care you can taste the nutrition!

Chickabee does not grow garnishes, we grow food. All our micros are substantial, able to stand as a salad on their own, but also great as additions to salads, soups, and sandwhiches, or add them to finish cooked dishes or as a nutritional boost to juices and smoothies.

Chickabee guarantee; as a small local farm we are able to grow our shoots with attention to detail and provide you with the freshest possible product. All our shoots are grown to order, harvested, washed and packed on the day of delivery. This allows you to enjoy our shoots that day and for many days to come, most of our shoots have a shelf life of 10 days minimum when stored in a cooler. If you find differently we will refund your purchase.
