Microfarm™ Demeter

Demeter is the mythological Greek goddess of the harvest, grain and fertility. Because she was the goddess of the harvest, she was very important to the farmers and peasant people of ancient Greece. Like all the Olympian gods, Demeter was immortal and very powerful. She is believed to have had control over the harvest and growing of the grains. She could cause plants to grow (or not to grow) and had control over the seasons – definitely one to have by your side when planting you Microgreens!

Microgreens included in our Demeter goddess set:

Red Cabbage - Tiny in size, utterly gargantuan in health and well-being benefits, our red cabbage Microgreens are jam packed with fibre and folate, manganese and magnesium. Then there’s the thiamine, iron, calcium and potassium, not forgetting the riboflavin and vitamin K. For those suffering from disorders such as leaky gut, Coeliac disease, Crohn's disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Colitis, the amino acid L-glutamine in red cabbage has some welcome news – it’s capable of helping to heal the soft tissue that lines your intestines.

Daikon Radish - Deep breath now -  purple radish Microgreens contain… vitamins A, B, C, E and K, alongside iron, magnesium and zinc. Then there’s phosphorus, potassium, and plenty of protein (30%).  They’re also chock a block with calcium, carotene and chlorophyll, not to mention antioxidants and amino acids.

Pak Choi-  A pale green Microgreen with a slightly sweet, robust flavour. Belonging to the cruciferous family of vegetables and first cultivated in China thousands of years ago, it is now available all over the world. An absolute power green containing vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. Unlike many other fruits and vegetables Pak Choi contains traces of the essential micronutrient – the mineral selenium, which helps certain antioxidant enzymes to work. These enzymes remove reactive oxygen species (free radicals) and so prevent oxidative damage to organs and tissues. Selenium also helps the hormone thyroxine, which regulates metabolism, to work. Selenium also prevents inflammation, may decrease tumour growth rates but there is insufficient scientific evidence yet to support that claim.  It mitigates the effects of certain toxins such as mercury.

Tatsoi -  the young seedlings of tatsoi mustard, super easy and fast to grow. This micro-leaf has a pleasant mild flavour, is incredibly healthy; delivering vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, plus minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and even iron. They are also a great source chlorophyll.
