We produce authentic hand-reared, organically farmed, soil-grown superfood microgreens for the most discerning customers across the UAE.
My story began many years ago, through meticulous research, when I discovered the miraculous effect that nutrient-rich microgreens had on the health of a close relative. For the last 20+ years, I have been a pioneering microgreen evangelist, and I am dedicated to spreading the highest quality of produce available through New Leaf.
Harvested after about 2 weeks, still with the embryonic cotyledon leaves, authentic microgreens have up to 9 times more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and polyphenols (plant compounds proven to help fight disease) than the same quantity of mature vegetables.
Microgreens are rich in assorted minerals such as potassium, iron, zinc, copper and magnesium and have been linked to lowering risk from heart disease, alzheimer's, diabetes and certain cancers.
Always wanted to visit a modern farm? Willing to know more about microgreens benefits for your health? Curious to taste them live? Ready to discover a green world in the desert? This experience is definitely for you.
