Longkeeper Farm microgreens are the freshest quality microgreen on the market due to the care and attention we give to our growing, harvesting and packaging methods.
To ensure you get the freshest healthy living microgreens in your kitchen we harvest daily to order. Harvesting each crop at their peak condition, always with a chef’s attention to detail, then chilled before packing.
Our microgreens are shipped overnight to Auckland, air freighted to other national destinations and ‘Jet Fresh’ to our international customers.
Cut Microgreens will continue to breath. This process is called respiration, breaking down stored organic materials which leads to loss of moisture, colour, texture, flavour and nutrients.
Living Microgreens on the other hand allow you to determine when to cut maintaining optimum freshness, color texture flavor and nutrients
Shelf life of our Living microgreens, stored between 2C° and 8C°, is 7 to 10 days. We grow our microgreens on cellulose which is a hygienic natural media that meets all the hygiene regulations.
