Microgreens as Superfood

As the COVID-19 pandemic has changed people’s attitudes about their food shopping habits, microgreens do not have a direct effect on curbing the virus but help indirectly by protecting the organs due to their antioxidant properties, strengthening one’s immune system, and helping develop a first-line defense system against the virus. Hence, the demand for microgreens is on a rise. Shah Farm has built its greenhouses on 70+ acres of land located in Berryville, historic Clarke County Virginia. We are located 45 minutes from Upperville and Middleburg, 1 hour from Warrenton, 15 minutes from Winchester, VA, 15 minutes from Charles Town, WV, 45 minutes from Washington DC, and 45 minutes from Bethesda, Rockville MD.
