Hey there,

It's Chris Bob, the founder of Woodstock Microgreens. Here's how I turned a college hobby into a problem solving business and helped my struggling friends maintain their organic, Asian produce farm.


In the winter of 2020,

some friends of mine, recent immigrants to the United States, were having a tough time covering the costs of their farm due to language barriers and a lack of customers. I knew I had to do something to help. After some research, I decided to pursue an offseason project that could support their business. I had a hunch that microgreens could be the saving grace, so I turned my longtime hobby of cultivation into my occupation.

I was still in college when I started this project, but then COVID happened and kept me home. I was finally able to put my idea to the test. I spent around a year developing the unique flavor of our greens by testing different lighting rigs, soil types, seeds, and workflows. It was a lot of work, but the end result was worth it.

After all the hard work, I started selling our produce at the Beacon Winter Farmers Market. My mission has always been to make Woodstock Microgreens as healthy and cost-effective as possible so that everyone in the Hudson Valley could enjoy great quality microgreens. That's why I donate excess greens every week.

I don't agree with the recent conventions of microgreens farming which employ water-only or soil substitutes. No way! I elected to cut out 'factory' farming and found a way to only use organic, heirloom, non-GMO seeds, organic soil, and biodegradable cornstarch packaging while keeping costs low.

Woodstock Microgreens from greens to packaging is 100% compostable and American-sourced.

I have a passion for educating my customers on the benefits of greens, in terms of health and taste, which has turned them into my greatest marketing partners.

So if you're looking for some delicious, healthy microgreens that won't break the bank or harm the environment, come check us out. We're Woodstock Microgreens, and we're changing the game!
