Introduction Icon Introduction:

Some of the benefits that microgreens offer are their vitamin density and delicious flavor. However, longer transit times and added food miles due to importation from out-of-state growers can result in higher emissions and a loss of freshness and potency. That’s why purchasing Miami-grown microgreens from Brickell Micro Farms can make a difference. But beyond their deliciousness lies a deeper significance: their journey from seed to plate directly impacts your health and the health of our planet. In essence, choosing locally-grown microgreens like ours at Brickell Micro Farms isn’t just a culinary choice; it’s a conscious decision towards minimizing carbon output and, therefore, doing your part for a sustainable future.

Miami-Grown vs. Imported Microgreens: A Footprint Comparison

While Miami basks in sunshine, microgreens grown thousands of miles away, like those in New Jersey, travel long distances to reach your plate. This means that the journey to deliver your greens leaves a significant carbon footprint, resulting in higher levels of greenhouse gas emissions, thus impacting the environment. Studies estimate that the carbon footprint of a single kilogram of produce imported from afar can be up to 10 times higher than locally grown equivalents. Imagine the collective impact of countless microgreens shipped across the country, certainly resulting in less emissions!

By choosing Miami-grown microgreens from Brickell Micro Farms, you’re consciously minimizing your environmental impact. Our microgreens are grown right here in Miami, eliminating the need for long-distance transportation and significantly reducing carbon emissions. We custom-grow your food, specifically for you, and deliver it within 24 hours of its harvest date. All in all, this contributes to a cleaner environment, healthier communities, and a more sustainable future for generations to come.

Beyond Footprints: The Benefits of Miami-Grown Microgreens
