Meet your Farmer


Homegrown By Heroes

At Upstate Greens, we enjoy efficiently producing the next Big Superfood, Microgreens, in our upcycled 40′ foot refrigerated shipping container.  My wife and I launched our urban farm in late 2015. A little bit about me: I am a veteran of the United State Marine Corps, and have joined the Veteran Farmers Coalition as a veteran food producer.  Additionally, I was a bank examiner for over 10 years with the Federal Reserve.  I was driven to enter into the local food movement after I had a front seat view of the consolidation and near collapse of the financial industry and decided I could impact our community more through good nutrition.  So we set out on our journey.

 

We are Homegrown by Heroes certified   (certifies I am a veteran producer)

We are Certified SC Grown.

Lastly although we are not a big enough producer to gain the Organic label, we do use all natural growing methods, organic soils and feed, and non treated seed.

 

Our children, Jadon and Kamryn, have enjoyed learning how to grow food. Teaching them these skills is priceless to us. And to have them ask for microgreens on their plates, melts our hearts. They are establishing good nutrition habits.

Together as a family of four, we are working hard to produce you the finest produce. And because we are indoors, no pest control is needed. Your microgreens only receive what they were intended too- water, soil, and light.

 

Try our Microgreens- promise you won’t be disappointed.

 

Peace,

Jason and Kim
