Tom Stem
The Family Farm At Fall Harvest
My name is Tom Stem and my wife, Janice is responsible for bringing wheatgrass juice to our family.  She became aware of the benefits of wheatgrass juice after a health concern prompted the reading of a book by Eydie Mae Hunsberger titled, "How I Conquered Cancer Naturally".

We really connected with the raw food philosophy of 'body heal thyself' and believe that the best solutions come from the inside out rather than the outside in.  Being keen observers over the years, we have watched people use wheatgrass juice for a wide variety of reasons and now, more than ever, believe that the nutrition in wheatgrass can help the body perform at an optimal level.

We started making our own wheatgrass juice over 35 years ago because there was no commercial source available. You soon understand that keeping the juice available on a continual basis is a 365 day a year job.  Initially, we grew with seeds, soil and trays in a small greenhouse. The grass grew well, but we struggled with soil changes and the growth of molds which dramatically changed the nature of the juice. Over time, we learned that wheat grass must be grown outdoors and have been doing so for many years.

Wheatgrass juice is so difficult to make that even today, 35 years later, it is hardly commercially available.  Even if you find it or try to grow it yourself, the quality is usually so poor that it makes it difficult to stick with it.  We have solutions to these problems that work.  Our interest in the juice has been unwavering over the years and so keen that we have custom designed equipment and re-invented processes.  Today we produce outstanding wheatgrass juice and are pleased to make it available to you.
 

What To Look For In Wheatgrass (Or Is It Wheat Grass?)


The terms "wheatgrass" and "wheat grass" are interchangable.  Technically, the correct term is the two word expression "wheat grass" which describes the young form of the wheat plant.  In popular culture, the single word "wheatgrass" has evolved to describe wheat grown in trays specifically for the purpose of juicing.  So "wheatgrass" is the term you want to use; however, the advantages of growing outdoors are substantial and your "wheatgrass juice" will be far better if it is made from outdoor grown "wheat grass".  Here are the characteristics to pursue in order to achieve maximum benefits:

  1 • Make Sure Your Wheatgrass Is Made From Wheat  
If you want wheatgrass benefits, the product you consume should be made of wheat.  Surprise!  This is often not the case.  Common substitutes include "cereal grass" (usually rye), fillers in powders such as whey, rice and arrowroot and green drinks mostly contain grape juice, pineapple juice or apple juice.

DynamicGreens Wheatgrass Juice is always 100% raw and living wheatgrass juice.
  2 • It Must Be Juice  
Juice is 100% bioavailable.
Testing at the Boston labs of MIT showed powders to have only 2% of the bioavailability of the juice.  This occurs because high cellulose levels in the whole leaf make it indigestible.

The Land, Our Methods And
Personal Wheatgrass History
Outdoor growth in a proper climate develops:
  • A strong, deep root system.  When not limited by the bottom of growing trays, wheatgrass roots reach down 12" into the soil allowing the development of a nutrient rich plant.
  • Time to mature properly.  Outdoor wheatgrass is different as it takes 120 days to grow to harvesting height. Wheat grass grown indoors is hyper accelerated by hot temperatures and no cool nights. It grows to harvesting height in just 10% of the time (7-10 days) it takes outdoors.
  • High chlorophyll content.  Direct sunlight results in optimal chlorophyll content and many believe this is at the very heart of the benefits of wheatgrass juice.
  • High phytonutrient content.  These compounds form the immune system of the plant and give it color, flavor, smell and texture.  They are dramatically higher in outdoor grown crops where the immune system is activated by variable conditions.  You want this variability as phytonutrients are powerful antioxidants and provide your body with signicant protection.
  • No simple sugars. Wheatgrass grown outdoors features no sugars and no carbohydrates.
All natural organic farming methods:
  • Crop rotation and fallowing feeds the land so the land can feed our crop.
  • Deep discing of the land is used to bring fresh soil to the surface.
  • Herbicide and pesticide free.
  • Our frozen wheatgrass juice is pure nutrition and not denatured in any way.
  • Greater bioavailability than pills and powders as juicing releases the nutrition otherwise held captive by indigestible fibers.
Indoor vs Outdoor Wheatgrass
"Fresh vs Flash Frozen"
No detectable molds. Mold is a serious problem in indoor tray / greenhouse grown wheatgrass.
  • Mold can pose a big problem to indoor crops; and is solved by growing outdoors.
  • We grow outdoors during nature's seasonal growing cycles and this enables us to create exceptionally clean juice with no detectable molds.
  • No detectable molds means that our wheatgrass juice tastes good. Similar to green tea or watermelon rind, our frozen wheatgrass juice is a pleasure to drink.
  • No detectable molds means no adverse reactions, which are commonly reported by customers at their local juice bars.
  • No detectable molds means you can consume large amounts over long periods of time if needed.
Better engineering is our goal in everything we do.
  • We have custom engineered farm equipment that allows us to harvest when the wheatgrass is at the perfect height of 7"-11" without bruising the grass.
  • Our remarkable flash freezing process keeps even sensitive organic elements like vitamins and enzymes alive.
  • Our packaging prevents oxidation (browning) and enables easy portioning so you can take any amount you want.
Get it tomorrow!  We have an excellent shipping process that is fast and flexible.
  • Overnight shipping is included in our prices, they are no extra shipping fees or taxes
  • You choose the day it arrives so you can actually place your order whenever you want.
  • Delivery date selection is done on the ordering page and you can even order into the future.  We only charge your credit card the day your wheatgrass juice ships.
     
The Problem With Indoor Grown Wheatgrass How Outdoor Grown Wheatgrass Differs
Common User Observations Associated
With Indoor Grown Wheatgrass Juice
  • I know it's good for you but it just tastes terrible.
  • I have been drinking the juice for months, but now when I raise a glass to my lips, I just can't make myself drink it
  • I get so dizzy afterwards that I have to sit down
  • The wheatgrass juice gave me a terrible headache
  • I was so nauseated, I thought I was going to throw up
  • It made me throw up
For some reason, it has become common practice to describe these reactions as experiencing the strong detoxifying effects of wheatgrass juice.  Well informed people know better and attribute these reactions to the presence of mold.

Your body is reacting to toxic substances commonly found in wheatgrass grown indoors and within greenhouse environments.  It is well known to growers and kit sellers that wheatgrass grown in these closed systems quickly becomes contaminated with molds.  In the book, "Wheatgrass - Nature's Finest Medicine" by Steve Meyerowitz, molds are discussed on pages 93-94, 98, 113, 115, 158-161, 163-173, 175-176, 197, 202, 210 and 217.

Scrubbing and washing the grass removes some of the contaminates, but in most cases, you are ingesting mycelial growth (slime mold); specifically the phytopathogens Rhizopus sp. and Pythium sp. Growers try to wash the molds off, use fungicides, use hydrogen peroxide or just try to cut above it.  Unfortunately, none of these techniques is effective as it grows right into the grass and it remains tainted.

How To Spot Mold

This is a public service to those that choose to grow.  Wheatgrass is not a staple of our diet today because molds sour too many user experiences. The problem with detecting molds is that they are very fine and you can't see them.  Here is how to see them to help avoid negative experiences.  Use your digital camera to take a picture of the lower portion of the plant and most importantly, force the flash on.  The flash will light up the mold as shown in the example below:


Why Our Juice Does Not Have Mold Issues

We grow in a natural environment in which mother nature in her infinite wisdom has processes which prevent the molds from taking hold.  This is a combination of sun, air, lower density planting, frost cycles, winter and planned fallowing of the land.

Our juice isn't just better, it is in a league of its own.  It always tastes light, a little sweet and is very well tolerated by both your taste buds and your body.

For the record, we did grow in a greenhouse at one time and switched to outdoor growth due to the same mold problems found in closed system growing operations today.
