Outdoor work has ended here in Saskatoon, and can now focus on indoor micro greens production. The advantage to this type of crop is that it allows you to ramp up production very quickly. Case in point, I got an order from a local chef who works for a large multi-national hotel chain. He has a standing order for bi-weekly deliveries of six .15 lb. bags of micros and one cut tray of pea greens. Micros are $7.50 per bag, and peas are $17.50 per cut tray.
This week he told me he wants 26 bags of micros and four trays of peas for Nov. 8. That’s about a $250 order. Ramping up is easy. That means about 9 trays of micros, which are not a big deal to produce. So I’ll be planting soon for this order.
