Fresh, Healthy Food for All

At the micro farmers, we believe that everyone should have access to fresh, nutritious food, no matter where they live. Our journey began in 2014 when our co-founder Max started growing microgreens in his basement during the depths of a Canadian winter. With a simple setup and a bit of practice, he was able to provide his family with almost a kilo of healthy greens each week.

Inspired by this success, Max and his father Alan set out to share the joy of homegrown produce with others. They started by growing microgreens for local farm markets and CSAs, but soon realized that this model had its limitations. Pre-grown microgreens often went to waste, driving up costs and limiting accessibility.

The Solution: Empowering You to Grow Your Own

Alan and Max knew there had to be a better way. They believed that if they could make it easy and convenient for people to grow microgreens at home, they would fall in love with the process and the results. And so, Micro Farmers was born.

Our Unique Grow Kits

We create simple, high-quality grow kits that enable you to grow microgreens, wheatgrass, pet grass, herbs, and more using just a windowsill and clean water.

  • Cost savings: Save money by growing your own food
  • Sustainability: Reduce your environmental impact by eliminating packaging and transportation

A Family Committed to Your Success

In 2020, our family faced a difficult challenge when Alan stepped back from the micro farmers to battle an aggressive cancer. Annie, Max's wife and partner, graciously took over day-to-day operations, pouring her heart into the business. Sadly, Alan passed away in December 2020, but his legacy lives on through our mission to help people grow their own fresh food.

Today, Annie and Max continue to run the micro farmers together. Annie is the beating heart of our company, handling kit and order packing, customer service, and more, while Max focuses on content and design. We are a small but mighty team, dedicated to empowering you to grow and harvest fresh food at home and in your community.
