Meet your local Farmer
Welcome to Vitality Farms Company!!
Lisa, founder of Vitality Farms Company, has a deep connection to Genese Lake in southern Wisconsin where she spent her childhood summers with her family. The memories of those fun times on the lake have left a lasting impression on her, inspiring her entrepreneurial spirit and desire for more. Lisa’s grandparents acquired several acres of the property from their ancestors who purchased it from Colonel Gustave Pabst, the eldest son of Milwaukee’s first founding brewer, Captain Frederick Pabst. While the Pabst family is known for their beer, Colonel Pabst is actually more well-known for his Worcestershire sauce recipe, which Lisa’s great, great granddaughter has transformed into a hugely successful product.
Although Vitality Farms Company, has its roots in Florida rather than Wisconsin, they share the same entrepreneurial mindset as their ancestors. Lisa, who holds an MBA, started Vitality Farms Company as a micro-green nursery and seed distribution business as a way to provide for and give back to their community. She was not afraid to take a great leap into the unknown, leaving her careers behind to improve their family’s overall health and share healthy, nutritional superfoods with others.

Our Microgreen Living Trays
Our living trays are filled with various organic growing mediums bursting with vibrant microgreens. Living trays allow you to cut the greens right before you prepare them. This essentially allows you to eat living plants, full of life-giving nutrition. Green plants have long been known to provide the highest amount micronutrients – vitamins, minerals, and many other phytochemicals per calorie. As a plant is cut and stored, vital micronutrients are lost with each passing hour and each passing day. Most greens that you purchase in the market are a minimum of 3-5 days old. Then you store them for a few more days in your refrigerator. Living trays allow you to take advantage of the full benefits of these greens, without loss of nutrition. It’s feeding your body vital nutrients and vitality our bodies were designed to have. Our greens get lots of light during the day and needed darkness at night. Just like humans need to rest, so do microgreens. It’s essential they also receive dark hours at night to metabolize and convert those carbohydrates into plant tissue. They deepen their roots, thicken their stems, and broaden their leaves. In other words, plants work hard by day, and grow strong by night.
