About Us

Tiny Seeds Garden strives to be central Minnesota’s leading microgreen supplier.

We care about our world and want to run our business with integrity and transparency. Every decision we make, from our seeds to our packaging, is carefully considered. 

We Work Hard to Provide You with the Best Quality Microgreens Around!

Whenever possible, we start with organic seed. Then, our Microgreens are grown in a mix of organic Sphagnum Peat Moss and Perlite. We harvest them only once to ensure optimum quality, for the highest nutritional value and freshest taste. 

For our small packages, we also chose a 99% plant-based package made in North America that contains no phthalates, BPAs, or other chemicals of concern. Package labels are made from sugarcane. The whole package breaks down within 180 days in an industrial composting facility. If no facility is available locally, please recycle.

Chefs, you now have a personal grower at your fingertips. Totally customizable and utterly dependable. We grow in a controlled environment, which allows us to give each of our clients a completely tailored and customizable grow-to-order experience, no matter what the season.

Tweak sizing, flavor, and even color of certain varieties to get exactly the product you’re looking for! We use state-of-the-art equipment and grow clean. This means no pollution and no pesticides. Just freshness, flavor, and nutrition.

We deliver or you pick up, $5 deliveries on Tuesdays and Fridays if you’re in our delivery area. Alternatively, you can pick up Tuesdays and Fridays at
4384 E. Grove Street, Pequot Lakes from 5:00–7:00pm.

Molly Ring & Sam Salfisberg

Growers

This is Sam & Molly. Tiny Seeds Garden is theirs. If you want to know their story and how it all got started, here’s the dirt…

Sam & Molly met in 2007 at a business networking group. Molly had a marketing business and Sam was a builder. (Sam thought Molly was obnoxious and Molly thought Sam was a grumpy stick-in-the-mud, lol.) They fell in love anyway and married in 2009 and started their life together. Everything was great except Molly was having a hard time with meals. They were making her sick. Not every meal, but most of them. Every new diet was tried, even some questionable ones, desperately seeking a solution. Years of frustration and trying to find the food triggers wore on. At one point, Molly was down to about 15 foods she could safely tolerate and still no closer to figuring out what, exactly, was making her sick.

A yellow jacket sting would be the key to unlock the mystery. It was histamine intolerance! What the heck is that? Well, it’s complicated. But after a little research (hours upon hours lol), Molly finally knew what to avoid and how to eat. Although, it still wasn’t simple. Everything had to be completely clean and fresh. Molly eats an organic, soy-free, low histamine, vegetarian diet. Sam, bless him, does too. (The man is a saint!) 

You might not know this about Sam, but he’s a farmer right down to the ground. He’s a great builder but his true LOVE is growing things. Some of Molly’s research pointed to a genetic disorder that meant she wasn’t producing enough of diamine oxidase (DAO) which is a histamine-lowering enzyme in your digestive tract. One of the highest natural sources of DAO was pea microgreens, so Sam decided to try to grow them. This way he could control every aspect of the growing process to ensure the cleanest, freshest, nutrient-packed product, and it could be grown inside, in winter, in Minnesota. Wow, let me tell you, they were absolutely delicious! It also meant that by adding them to foods, it would lower the histamine in the dish, allowing much more variety to their diet. Molly did a little more research and found that most microgreens contain 4-40 times the nutrition as their mature counterparts, so they started experimenting with other varieties.

Many great salads and delicious meals later, they thought, “This is great! We should share this, other people would love this, too!” And…Tiny Seeds Garden was born 🙂

We hope you do enjoy our microgreens. You can buy with confidence knowing  that you’re getting the very best we can produce. We plan to keep experimenting and supplying you with the freshest, tastiest, healthiest food around.
