About the Farm

Peterborough Microgreens is an eco-friendly urban farm committed to providing our community with year round access to locally grown microgreens. We also operate under the name Victory Greens outside of the city.

We are a business built around environmental sustainability. We are proud to be one of the only microgreen growers in Canada to use plastic free packaging and green energy to power our facilities. We are also one of the founding members of the Peterborough branch of Green Economy Canada an organization focused on helping business reduce their carbon footprint.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Peterborough Microgreens has been committed to creating an environmentally sustainable business model since day one. Minimizing our environmental footprint as we grow our business is a core belief to our personal and professional values.

Here are some examples of how we fulfill our sustainability commitment

Water Consumption
Microgreens use 80% less water than full sized vegetables of equivalent weight. We plan to install a rain collection system in Spring 2022 to help conserve more water.

In March 2020 Stephanie started growing microgreens for friends and family during the first COVID lockdown. Seeing the huge demand for fresh produce that could be delivered contact free to your door, she started a small business selling pea shoots through social media.

In September 2020 she was accepted into the first cohort of the Innovation Cluster’s “Women Breaking Barriers” business accelerator and mentorship program, which helped her launch Peterborough Microgreens in January 2021.

Our mission is to grow healthy food that is accessible to every member of our community while serving as an example for plastic-free and environmentally friendly food production
