This week on The Farm Report, Stewart Borowsky (The Union Square Grassman) joins host Erin Fairbanks to talk about greens! A big topic of this week’s episode includes wheatgrass, including how Stewart grows, produces, harvests, and eventually creates the amazing wheatgrass juice that contains the health-benefiting nutrients we love. Also learn how Stewart learned to become a farmer, and ended up transitioning to becoming a wheatgrass producer in New York City. With wheatgrass production constantly growing and the summer’s weather heating up, learn how Stewart is also planting similar but more flexible greens, such as pea shoots, buckwheat greens, radish sprouts, and foods for pets! Wondering how to incorporate healthy greens into your diet? Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about how wheatgrass can benefit you today! This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market.
