"Chris Thoreau has been an invaluable part of our success in starting our very own urban microgreens farm here in Ibaraki, Japan. The information that he provides and the principals that he teaches have absolutely supported us in adapting and developing our own processes on the other side of the world. We are just ramping up to prepare for the local farmer’s markets and thanks to Chris, it has been a very quick and efficient learning curve with very little challenges, if any at all.Thank you Chris, from a Japanese Canadian and previous Vancouverite farming in Ibaraki, Japan."
"Chris is an an impressive informational resource on all aspects of creating a microgreens business. My consultation with him and his workshop in the early days of growing microgreens for us was the best investment we could have made. I searched everywhere for a book when I was starting out, and Chris's workshop met the need with flying colors. Mentor-ship of this kind will empower growers to be successful in a business where details matter, and mistakes are all too easy to make."
"Chris’s advice and expertise in microgreens production, sales, and business development has easily made me thousands of dollars in additional income compared to what I would have been able to do myself if I did everything the hard way. On top of that, the lessons I’ve learned from Chris have saved me dozens if not hundreds of hours in trial and error, effectively preventing thousands of dollars in wasted labour, energy, and crop losses. With countless thousands of hours of experience in his many years of running his own successful microgreens company, Chris has painstakingly experimented with and dialed in everything it takes to make a microgreens business work so you don’t have to."
