‘My Organics’ is a product range which has stemmed from our organic farm- Mulberry Meadow Farm. We are growing on the ‘stoney grey soil’ of Monaghan, just off the N2 close to Clontibret. We grew from a small 1acre market garden to a 10 acre farm supplying Michelin Star Chefs to our local farmer’s market, winning awards along the way. We are 100% organic and believe wholeheartedly in the physical and environmental benefits of organic produce. Our backs have been against the wall on numerous occasions and perhaps we should have given up but we struggled on in our belief that an organic, local farm is not only ethically and environmentally important but is also crucial???
What is ‘My Organics’?
Here on Mulberry Meadow Farm we have pioneered the movement of micro greens and developed this exciting new product. It is a range of living salad, micro greens and wheatgrass. We have been working on this range for over 2 years and believe we now have it perfected. It is an exciting new product to the world of organics and Mulberry Meadow Farm are committed to growing in an ethical manner.
This is an exciting, fantastically healthy new product; which in fact won the ‘SuperValu Taste of Cavan Award 2014- for the most exciting, innovative and tasty new product (and that was at the product’s first outing!)
Our range is called ‘my organics’ – we want to make organic available to everyone.
The concept is that you can buy this product living in a pot, in its organic soil and you eat it as fresh as the day you bought it – when you want! It’s all about you. You harvest the salad when you are ready to eat it, that way you seal in the optimum nutritional value, health benefits and freshness and also eliminate waste- gone are the days when you buy a bag of salad and throw it out because it has lost its freshness.
We are passionate about health and healthy food. These are organic superfoods- you can’t get much better than that!
Living organic wheatgrass- which you harvest when you are ready and juice. 1 shot of Wheatgrass is equivalent to 1 kg of green vegetables. Wheatgrass is full of nutrition- all 8 amino acids, vitamins A, B, C, E, K. It has the highest source of Chlorophyll of any known plant on the planet and is therefore an excellent for detoxing. It builds red blood cells and boosts the immune system. So should be part of every healthy diet and excellent to combat illness.
Living organic micro greens – beetroot, pea shoots, sunflower, rocket, kale, broccoli. Which are all full of nutrition.
For example Organic Micro Sunflower is 30% more nutritious than the healthiest vegetable. 99g of Sunflower contains 22.78g of Protein; the same amount chicken contains just a little more- but with none of the saturated fat you would find in chicken! It contains 8 Amino Acids, Omega 6, Fatty Acids, Vitamins A, B, D, E, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorous, Zinc, Protein.
