Our Microgreens are now available for retail purchase at Poa Cafe!
Microgreens are young vegetable greens, not to be confused with sprouts or shoots. Microgreens are generally harvested just after the cotyledon leaves have developed and possibly with one set of true leaves, sometimes two. They are considered a superfood, full with essential nutrients and vitamins.
Microgreens are packed full of vitamins and enzymes, and make every dish they accompany shine with vibrant flavors and textures. The nutritional value of Microgreens can be 10x-30x higher than their adult counterpart. Plus they're delicious even on their own. #healthyliving

Our furry, beloved four-legged mascot at Farrah Farms and the reason why we do what we do. She is a rescued American Staffordshire Terrier and enjoys rolling in the grass, watching out windows and giving you nothin' but love and good energy.
We are the growing staff here at Farrah Farms.
Zack was born in Long Island, New York and grew to love farming and tending to crops through his family's farm; later moving to NYC in 2009 and graduating ICE culinary school in 2017. Zack has had cooking stints at Per Se, Eleven Madison Park, Pig & Khao and also ran his own restaurant, Bisou Bisou, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
Scott was also born into a life of farming outside of Boise, Idaho and later lived in Seattle before moving to NYC in 1999 while working in production, film and editing. He has directed several films, including Curiosity which was featured in Sundance Film Festival in 2001. He has also worked numerous years for President Clinton through the Clinton Global Initiative.
We met in 2010 and adopted Farrah in 2016. After years of city living, we decided to head somewhere that's green to give Farrah a more relaxed life here in Portland, Oregon.
