Microgreen Economics – Building and Maintaining a Profitable Business

Microgreens are an appealing crop due to their high value and minimal space requirements. But a successful business requires more than a valuable crop, and the appeal of a high-value product often blinds growers to the accompanying expenses and responsibilities. Building a sustainable microgreens production system takes time and attention to ensure it can establish and maintain profitability. In this talk, Chris Thoreau will explore the dynamics at play in building a microgreens business and share key factors for financial success.

Ensuring Product Integrity – Factors for Success in Intensive Microgreen Production

Whether you are growing microgreens in an urban or rural setting; full-time or part time; as a stand-alone business or integrated into your vegetable farm – the challenges are much the same. From seed to delivery, Chris Thoreau will share the principles, actions, and systems critical to the success of his urban microgreens operation. Now in its eighth year of production in, the Vancouver Food Pedalers production model is focused on ensuring product integrity from seed to delivery – a strategy that has cemented their reputation as one of North America’s most innovative small-scale microgreens producers. This talk will give you a set of principles and strategies transferable to all small-scale farming operations.

  1. Hello,

    I purchased the “Starting and Growing A Microgreens Business Online Course” the other day April 3,2017. upon check out, an “ORDER RECEIVED” showed on my browser. I was expecting to receive an email confirming my order/an instruction to access the course. its been 3 days already since my purchase. How can I access the course?

    Thank you,

  2. Hi Chris, I purchased your online workshop…it is excellent and great value, highly recommend it. I have a question regarding the CFIA guidelines for sanitizing seed with hydrogen peroxide it say to use 6-10% for 10 minutes. But other online info is all saying 3%. Just wondering what you would use and if you make the 3% solution from 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide? Is sanidate just a brand name for hydrogen peroxide?
