Four Season Greens supply sprouts and micro-greens throughout Muskoka to restaurants, retailers and individuals through a weekly sprout delivery program.  Owners, Steve and Sharon Bacon are passionate about producing local produce that’s “good-for-you” and making it both available and accessible year-round for everyone.  For several years they have been sharing their passion for sprouting with individuals through workshops in Muskoka and beyond. 

Sprouting does not require specialized equipment, is economical, and can be done on a kitchen counter.

Sprouts and micro-greens are super foods. The nutrition is maximized within a few days of germinating the seed. Sprouts and micro-greens aren’t just good for you, they taste delicious, and can be incorporated into all sorts of delicious foods.
