What's a "Microgreen"?
When we were first introduced to microgreens, we had no clue what they were. Us at Baby Chavs will gladly answer this question, regardless of how many times we are asked.
Microgreens are four (4) to 40% more nutrient-concentrated compared to mature counterparts. This means a full serving of leafy vegetables can be achieved with just one cup of microgreens! Even the pickiest eaters are willing to try microgreens with the reassurance that a little goes a long way.
Sprouts are germinated seeds that are usually sprouted in water and often associated with foodborne illnesses. Microgreens, in contrast, are harvested and eaten after the sprouting stage. Due to light and air exposure, the health risk of microgreens is comparable to eating mature vegetables - hardly any!
Microgreens are a sustainable, quick-growing crop. The average growth rate is 10 days from seeding to harvesting. This method of growing allows for less water and soil, and does not harm the environment. Baby Chavs uses coco coir (a renewable growing medium) and organic growing practices for optimal health and freshness.
Microgreens come in a variety of vibrantly delicious colors! We offer a wide range from brightly yellow corn shoots to amaranth pink! Microgreens are a great way to add excitement and finesse to any plate.
Baby Chav has the best micro greens in the PNW. The product is always fresh. The costumer service is great and the owner is very knowledgeable. My kids even love the greens.

Got my micro greens delivered today and we are loving every bite. Fresh, tasty and packaged in order to keep well. With only two in the household I didn’t know if we would eat them before they would go bad - not a chance! 1-because they taste so great we will gobble them up and 2-because they are packaged well. Thank you for a great product.
