FARM BIO

Fresh Forage is a small start up business with the intention of providing fresh microgreens year round. We first explored the concept in January of 2016 and by February we had started growing microgreens and wheat grass to verify proof of concept. Our bathroom looked like a mini greenhouse with trays full of microgreens and wheatgrass stacked along the wall. By the summer of 2016 we were ready to offer these amazing products to waiting customers. Since our in initial start at the beginning of summer, we have steadily grown and are now supplying several caters and restaurants in Winnipeg. Thank you to all those who have helped us grow and we look forward to the exciting future that lies before us.
