Black Pearl Gardens is a locally-owned vertical-farm which operates in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. The business started as a collaboration between a private restaurant owner and a farm girl, Christy Kaledas, turned financial consultant turned farm girl again.
Their goal is to provide the cleanest and most flavorful greens possible to restaurants and markets in the area based on the belief that good healthy eating makes for happy healthy communities.The first seed was planted in 2014 and the garden has continued to flourish since.
The business model is built on the promise of consistently delivering the purest and freshest greens year around. In 2016 the gardens grew to an additional location in Plymouth in order to provide for the growing number of individuals that share our vision. Grown indoors the microgreens are available year-round. Flavorful and nutrient dense the microgreens are great on salads, sandwiches, entrees, pizzas and in soups.
Select from a variety of mixes or try individual microgreens such as kale, sunflower, pea shoots, and radish. Each has a distinct flavor and texture. For example, sunflower is warm and nutty, while Kale is mild and savory, and pea shoots are crisp and clean. You may just like them so much, you'll have to try them all!
