"We make your bird's food as close to fresh as possible so you don't have to."
Microgreens and edible flowers are a healthy way to introduce Omegs 3s, vitamins, minerals and fiber into your feathered friend's system!
Microgreens and flowers are comprised of fiber known as "hemicellulose." This kind of fiber is healthier for a bird's digestive tract than "cellulose" found in mature greens and cruciferous veggies. Cellulose is a tough, insoluble fiber whereas hemicellulose is a tender, soluble fiber that breaks down easily and gently cleanses the digestive tract while infusing vital nutrients. Cellulose is broken down by the "cecum," a blind-ended organ located between the upper and lower intestine found in poultry and other fowl, but not present in parrots. Therefore it is best to avoid the feeding of high-cellulose-containing foods (produce that has the cellulose "woven" into the meat of the food, rather than contained on the outside (skin) where birds can peel the skin off and discard the cellulose).
Still, we want to introduce a limited amount of nutrition available in cruciferous vegetables...to do that we simply feed microgreens and edible flowers that are comprised of hemicellulose fiber which offer highly digestible and bio-available nutrients contained in cruciferous veggies.
Our microgreens and edible flowers are freeze-dried to maintain up to 97% of their original, naturally occurring nutrients with a long shelf life of up to 2 years! (Not that they will last that long when your flock discovers how good they taste!)
Organic broccoli, organic Purple Kohlrabi, organic Mizuna (Brassica rapa - Japanese mustard greens, or spider mustard), organic Kale, organic Red Cabbage, organic Red Mustard, organic Tatsoi (Brassica rapa - cabbage), organic Amaranth, conventional Purslane. (Purslane is a clover-like herb that bears small, wedge-shaped, oblong and dark, green leaves on its reddish-tinted, smooth and juicy stems. Flavorful and crunchy, the entire plant can be used, the stems being the most succulent. Raw stems offer a mild slightly sour, tangy flavor. The high content of alpha linolenic acid present in purslane, a type of the omega-3 fatty acids, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Purslane is also known as verdolagas or Mexican parsley.)
