  • How fresh will my Microgreens be when I receive them?
    Our Super Donkey Acres goal for all of our clients is to harvest and deliver on the same day - typically within a few hours. You are getting them nearly as fresh as if you picked them yourself! We harvest as close to your delivery time as possible to make sure all of the flavour and nutrition is at its peak once you receive them. If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your delivery, we want to make it right - that’s our Super Donkey Promise. Reach out to us any time at and we will phone you back to work it out.

  • Microgreens vs Sprouts
    Many people confuse Microgreens with sprouts - it is a common misconception! But in fact, they are very different. Some key differences are: Migrogreenss are grown in soil, on a grow mat, or hydroponically while sprouts are soaked in water and rinsed a few times each day. Microgreens seeds are planted in soil and harvested typically 10-14 days after planting. Sprouts are soaked and rinsed for a few days then ready to consume. Some research suggests Microgreens are more nutrient dense than sprouts. Microgreens have a much LOWER risk of food borne illness (such as salmonella) than sprouts because Microgreens are grown in soil with well controlled ventilation.
  • How long do they last?
    Microgreens can typically last up to 2 weeks in your fridge. Some things that will help extend the life of your greens are: Keeping your fridge between 3-4 degrees. Making sure they stay dry before you eat them. Keeping them in an airtight container in your fridge. Limiting the amount of time the container is open and out of the fridge.
  • What if I can’t be home to receive them?
    It is ideal that your greens go directly into your fridge once we deliver them. If you are not available to collect them from us, please leave a cooler and towel somewhere near your door for us to put your greens in.
  • How do I choose my delivery date & time?
