This week, Feast and Field makes its way westward to learn about the latest macro trend: microgreens. We dive into the future of urban farming with Jackson, Wyoming’s Vertical Harvest — a three-story, vertical hydroponic garden that grows everything from micro and petite greens to tomatoes and edible flowers. With a mission to ensure a stable and constant food supply to surrounding communities without weather dependency, Vertical Harvest is redefining accessibility to local, fresh produce.
We not only break down the difference between the various tiny green options at your local grocery store, but also offer a complete guide to incorporating some of the popular varieties into your dishes. Chef Clark Myers of Jackson Hole's Provisions gives three different recipes to try once you’ve mastered the basics. And if you can’t get enough microgreens, we even explain how you can grow them yourself with just a little bit of soil and sunlight.
