Micro-vegetables from Warmia

POWRÓT

Hi! I’m Kinga and I’m responsible for all the fuss. I would really like the knowledge concerning the amazing properties of micro-vegetables, and thus my #microKinie, to reach the households of Olsztyn. I am a graduate of horticulture at UWM in Olsztyn, but my career at the university continues. I am currently a PhD student at the Department of Horticulture, where I discovered and have been studying micro-vegetables for 4 years. The idea for a business concerning the cultivation of micro-vegetables was born during my adventure with the UWM Business Academy. I have graduated from the Academy with a solid business plan, an idea for the name #microKinie, and believing that it must be successful.

“Mikrowarzywa z Warmii” (Micro-vegetables from Warmia) is a municipal farm specializing in the ecological cultivation of micro-vegetables. Micro-vegetables – micro leaves, micro herbs, and micro-greens constitute very young plants of various vegetables, herbs, and flowers. This is the 2nd phase of plant growth. It occurs between the sprout and baby leaf phases, when the hypocotyl and cotyledons are fully developed. Micro-vegetables contain up to 60 times more vitamins than their adult counterparts. For example, red cabbage contains circa 50 mg of vitamin C and 38 μg of vitamin K, and micro red cabbage as much as 150 mg of vitamin C and 280 μg of vitamin K! That is why, micro leaves belong to the SuperFood functional food group. In addition to the nutritional value, micro-vegetables are characterized by rich taste, colours, and textures.

Micro herbs can be aromatic, sweet, spicy, or sweet and spicy! They can be crisp, tender, and fresh. They make a great addition to all dishes, also desserts!

The offer is addressed mainly to the HoReCa industry. Additionally, my mission is to disseminate the knowledge concerning the properties of micro-vegetables and direct the offer to individual customers. We follow the No-waste principle! (ecology above all) The materials used during production are biodegradable and recyclable.

In order to maintain the highest freshness and quality, the plants are sold in growing form in economic packaging (large) or in ecological packaging (medium).

Currently, I offer the following species: amaranth, broccoli, beetroot, mustard, boogie peas, kale, barley, kohlrabi, cabbage, cilantro, mizuna, nasturtium, borage, leek, watercress, pink radish, and sunflower.
