QUESTIONS?

Pricing, delivery, use & care, and many more questions are answered below.  If you need more help, please Contact Us anytime.

 
PRICING?
We charge per pot of microgreens, with a 4 pot minimum - and all our greens are the same price.  There is also a delivery fee that varies based on delivery size.  The entire delivery fee goes to cover our shipping costs, and we actually subsidize a large portion for you.
  • $5 per pot - for recurring orders
  • $6 per pot - for one-time orders
  • Delivery fee: $12 per order.  Full fee goes to our shipping partners.

     
HOW DO MY GREENS ARRIVE?
We deliver microgreens cut, in containers, ready to wash & eat!  They will arrive in a refrigerated box via UPS Next Day Ground.  All packaging and containers are fully recyclable.  All our greens are grown in 5"x5" pots (as you can see in the photos on this page), with a minimum of 4 pots per order.  You may mix and match any varieties you like.  On delivery day, we cut & pack your greens with love, and send them directly to your door - arriving in less than 24 hours.
WHERE DO YOU DELIVER?
We deliver our fresh greens anywhere in Illinois, as well as many locations in Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Kentucky, and the St. Louis area.  Please see our delivery map below - areas in yellow are within our delivery range.
ARE YOU ORGANIC?
We grow indoors, following organic practices, with no pesticides EVER, and in OMRI listed organic, renewable coconut husk.  As a small farm, we have not pursued organic certification but will likely do so in the near future.
 
DO YOU OFFER ONE-TIME or RECURRING DELIVERIES?
We are happy to deliver one-time orders, or set up a recurring schedule that works well for you - weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.
DO YOU ACCOMMODATE VACATION HOLDS?
Simply let us know 11 days in advance and we can cancel or reschedule your deliveries.  If you forget and need help last minute, we have you covered too :-)
 
DO YOU DELIVER YEAR-ROUND?
Yes!  We grow indoors, so we enable our Farm Family to maintain healthy habits all year.  If it get really cold during the winter, we will even deliver in a returnable cooler to keep your microgreens safe :-)
 
DO I NEED TO BE HOME FOR DELIVERY?
Nope.  We know everyone is busy.  The USPS will leave your package per your standard post office delivery instructions and will stay fresh until you arrive later that day.  We do not recommend leaving your package out overnight.  The contents should be placed in the refrigerator on the day of arrival.
 
 
ARE MY MICROGREENS READY TO EAT UPON ARRIVAL?
Yes indeed!  Simply give them a quick wash just before eating and you are ready to go.  We recommend only washing the amount you will be using at that moment, and not washing ahead of time.
HOW DO I STORE AND CARE FOR MY MICROGREENS?

Your greens should easily last 10 days in your refrigerator.  Just keep them in their sealed containers until you are ready to wash and use them.  If they are, or get, a bit wet - store them in a sealed container on a dry paper towel.  As a general rule, cut microgreens like to be kept cold and dry.

DO YOU OFFER GIFT CERTIFICATES?
We sure do!  You can instantly order an e-gift card here and you will receive it right in your email.  We will happily work with your giftee to make it a special experience.​
WHO DO I TALK TO WITH MORE QUESTIONS OR SPECIAL REQUESTS?
Please think of us as your personal grower.  We are always at your service and are happy to help with anything you might need.  Email us at info@lakeforest.farm and we will take super-good care of you!
