What is Going On?

Derber Greens is located in northern Randolph County, North Carolina. We are producing mild and spicy microgreens in green and various colors. The vertical grow rack system is built and we hare transplanting the seedlings in the racks. There are nasturtiums, basil and some flowers . Heirloom tomatoes are flowering and setting fruit.

Nasturtium - Sharp peppery flavor. Leaves and flowers are edible. Great with fish, meat and salads.

Snapdragon - Beautiful spectrum of color with a tart flavor. Unusual shape adds dimension to your desserts and salads.

Heirloom Veggies

Heirloom plant species are vegetables, flowers, and fruits grown from seeds that are passed down from generation to generation. Heirloom seeds are open-pollinated, meaning they rely on natural pollination from insects or the wind. What is the difference between organic seeds/plants and heirloom seeds/plants? Organic refers to a specific way plants and seeds are grown, while heirloom describes a plant's heritage. Heirloom plants offer an intense flavor that put them in a class of their own.
