Did you know that 87% of adults fail to reach the
recommended daily intake of vegetables?
Despite all of the known benefits of eating vegetables, few adults are meeting the guidelines. At Mighty Greens Farm we care about your health and want to make eating dark, leafy greens as easy as possible!
Why dark, leafy greens?
- Rich in vitamins A, C, E and K
- Provide high levels of fiber, iron, potassium, magnesium, and calcium
- Supply a significant amount of folate
- High content of antioxidants
- Low calorie
By joining the Greens Program, you will have
access to a wide variety of nutrient dense greens
