What Are Microgreens?

Microgreens are plant foods harvested in the very early stages of plant growth, from 10 to 21 days after germination, depending on seed variety.

Nutrition Info (PDF)

Microgreens have higher levels of vital nutrients than their full-grown counterparts. Available all year, Backyard Produce is growing peas, kale, broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, radish, sunflower, onion, basil, cilantro, and beets.

Terry Weber

Terry Weber is the owner-operator of Backyard Produce. A Kansas native, Terry has worked with Lawrence restaurants and local farmers for over 25 years.  Terry began construction of the greenhouse facilities in 2007, and today, Backyard Produce includes over 2000 sq. ft. of traditional and hydroponic systems which grow micro and petite greens all year-round. Terry strives to create partnerships with other area farmers to provide customers with more local produce options during weekly deliveries to the Kansas City area. When he’s not seeding and cutting in the greenhouse, you can find Terry making local deliveries or vending at the Lawrence Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings.
