Finally!  We’ve made space in the store for a brand new Seed Sprouting Station!  Customers have asked for this kind of dedicated space for a long time and now we’re pulling it all together.  Please stop in and check it out (near the frozen foods section at the back of the store.)  Here’s a list the seeds we’re starting with:

5 Part Organic Salad Mix; Organic Alfalfa Seeds; Organic Broccoli Seeds, Organic Buckwheat Seeds, Organic Chia Seeds, Organic Crunchy Lentil Fest, Fenugreek Seeds, Organic Green Peas, Organic Radish Seeds, Organic Red Clover Seeds, Zesty Sprouting Mix, and Organic Unhulled Sunfloower Seeds

Here are some of the “reasons to sprout” as explained by one of our sprouting distributors, Handy Pantry

•    Only Pennies Per Serving
One tablespoon of seeds will fill a quart jar with several ounces of sprouts.

•    Simple and Easy
Take less than a minute per day to grow and prepare. They will grow nearly anywhere indoors, in any season. Sprouts require very little space and travel well.

•    Fresh and Ready Quickly
This “garden in your kitchen” grows very fast, in any kind of weather. No digging, planting, weeding, pests or chemicals involved. And there’s no long wait, as in seasonal outdoor gardens. Just 3 to 7 days to a bountiful, nutrition-packed harvest. When stored in your refrigerator, they will stay fresh for days- even weeks if rinsed properly.

•    Complete Foods
Sprouts are real health food. They are full of life- as you will see in how fast and luxuriously they grow. The right combination of sprouts contains everything needed for life and health. All their many nutritional elements are easily assimilated and readily available to your body. When home-grown, you know they are pure, and you can enjoy them at the peak of their perfection.

•    Tasty and Delicious
Bursting with flavor, you may be surprised how truly delectable they are. Enjoy them in salads, onsandwiches, stir-fried, steamed, or even baked in wholesome, home-made breads.
