Highlighting Mesa Microgreens: Our Local Female-Run Partner

At Tuesday Foods, we pride ourselves on supporting local, female-run businesses, and Mesa Microgreens is a perfect example. Located in Silt, Colorado, Mesa Microgreens provides us with a variety of fresh, nutrient-packed microgreens each week.

Meet Kaylin Harju, the Owner

Kaylin has been in the agriculture industry since 2011. She started working for a custom gardening company when she was 15 and continued working in that space for the next 10 years. She moved to Colorado in 2019 and started a Microgreen company as something she could do from home with her 5 kids. Mesa Microgreens has since grown and expanded into a company that is passionate about expanding local agriculture and serving community fresh nutrient dense food. 

Why We Love Mesa Microgreens

Microgreens are young vegetable greens that are rich in flavor and packed with nutrients. These tiny plants contain up to 12 times the amount of vitamins and minerals compared to their mature counterparts. For instance, a small handful of broccoli microgreens can provide more nutrients than an entire head of mature broccoli.

Nutritional Powerhouses

Incorporating microgreens into our meals helps us deliver the highest quality nutrition to our customers. From the intense flavors of mustard and radish microgreens to the delicate taste of pea and sunflower shoots, each variety brings something unique to many of our Tuesday Foods dishes.

Versatility in Dishes

Whether used as a garnish, a salad base, or a smoothie ingredient, microgreens add a burst of freshness and color to our dishes. Our favorites include broccoli for its delicate flavor, radish for its spicy kick, and sunflower for its nutty taste.

Supporting Local Farmers

By sourcing from Mesa Microgreens, we ensure our ingredients are fresh, local, and sustainably grown. This partnership not only enhances our menu but also supports the local economy and promotes sustainable farming practices.
