Day trippin’ to Stouffville with the fam. Meet Tom Stem. Proud wheatgrass farmer. He invited us four strangers into his home like we were family. So proud of my young nephew who listened attentively to his passionate stories and downed the superfood green drink like a champ! Fresh farm air. Connecting to the land and the dedicated people who work passionately with it to share with us. It’s what life is all about. #Exploring #DayDrives #Superfoods #TakingCareOfEachOther #ToastToHealingFoods #WheatgrassFarm #Stouffville ??????
Adele enjoys some wheatgrass in the most unconventional way in this comedy piece from the Ellen Degeneres show. Enjoy!
How much extra is it to ship to Canada?
Nothing. Our prices never have extra charges. The prices you see are all inclusive and in the currency of the delivery country. We always includes everything required to get it to you overnight with no surprise extra shipping fees, duties or taxes. You can see our prices here:
How does the wheatgrass juice stay frozen during the shipping process?
All shipments are delivered overnight, so they come quickly. The boxes are well insulated, have lots of ice and have 1.5 days of ship life in them. If it is delivered to your home and opened when you return from the office, everything will be well frozen.
Does the frozen wheatgrass have all of the same benefits as fresh wheatgrass never frozen?
Frozen wheatgrass is dramatically superior to the greenhouse grasses that you refer to as fresh. It is much more accurately described as being field grown wheatgrass vs greenhouse grown wheatgrass. We only field grow and our juice has 10% to 50% more nutrients (ie. iron is 10%, chlorophyll is 50%), no simple sugars (roughly 15% in the greenhouse) and no molds (all greenhouse grass have mold issues). This makes it more nutritious, sugar free and far better tasting and tolerated.
Screen Time You Can Live With
Our house has no TV and the kids get very little screen time. We found that whatever was saved by parking the kids in front of a screen was paid for 2x over trying to end the activity.
We do have screens, particularly computers and they can be used for good. Anything that helps us learn to think, create and action items is terrific.
We have found a web-based learning to code tool that we really like. Check it out at:
For anyone removing larger quantities of juice on a daily basis. Clicking the video will make it play. Also see Cube Removal Technique (Less Than 4 Fl Ozs).
The late night viewing of television, computers and smartphones / tablets is problematic. The type of light is disrupting our sleeping patterns which removes the opportunity for the body to properly rest and restore itself.
The issue seems to be the high levels of blue light produced by our LED screens. While bright and easy to see, the unintended side-effect is that the bright light mimics daylight and tells us to wake-up.
There are some simple solutions that automatically dim your screens and change the temperature of the colors to remove the offending blue.

Cereal grasses are one of the most important food groups that we can consume. Every cereal grass, from the green leaves of barley, wheat, rye, and oats, are nutritionally similar. These grasses differ from the mature seeds in terms of their nutritional and chemical consistency. Plant nutrients attain their peak heights as they near their brief, but critical, jointing stage. There are several stages that are required to let cereal grass grow properly, but the three most important stages involve good soil, the right moisture levels, and the right temperatures.
Good topsoil is a must to let cereal grass grow properly. Some combination of healthy composted soil is also a possibility. In Ontario, for instance, the Ontario Greenbelt forms an ideal growing ground for a variety of different products including wheatgrass. The Greenbelt forms two million acres of protected farmland, wetlands, forests, and watersheds from development. The Canadian government also protects the Greenbelt, making it an ideal location for sustainable agricultural development.
Some of the best areas in the world to grow cereal grasses are those that consist of a hybrid mixing of soils from different areas. These areas provide nutrient-rich soils that allow cereal grasses to grow to their full potential. Hands-on crop rotation and land management is key to keeping soil at its optimal level for cereal grass growing conditions.
The soil needs to be damp in order for these cereal grasses to develop properly. As it grows, these cereal grasses are watered daily or every other day to keep the soil moist. Cereal grass growers are careful to avoid wet and swamp conditions, as this can cause the young seeds to develop mold. Overwatering the soil is a common culprit, but the benefits of growing outdoors help protect plants from succumbing to mold.
The best environment for growing cereal grasses is one with consistent rain levels that don’t get excessive. Of course, there are a variety of different environments to which plants can adapt. Because the soil in the Greenbelt is so variable from farm to farm and even from field to field, cereal grasses and many other forms of produce have a unique advantage.
In periods of heavy rains, soils with high contents of sandy loam that also drain well will produce the best crops of cereal grass. In drier periods, heavy clays help retain moisture to produce the best crop. A combination of both of these types of farmland makes for the ideal cereal grass growth environments.
Ideal Temperature Conditions
Excessive heat is not productive for young cereal grass to grow as they are trying to sprout. Many companies attempt to grow cereal grasses indoors or in greenhouses, but they often creates a product with less nutrition that is also prone to mold. Temperate climates with consistent rainfall provide the best growing conditions for cereal grasses to develop.
All of these together are essential factors for these cereal greens to effectively progress through their growth stages. Nutrient concentrations vary based on the growing conditions and the growth stages at which the grasses are harvested. While it is possible to grow cereal grasses indoors, you get a better product from field grown cereal grasses. The root systems are deeper, the growth cycle is ten times longer, there are no simple sugars, the nutrient levels are much higher, and the taste is noticeably better.
Hi everyone. Thank you for a great year. Just wanted everyone to know that the last delivery day this year is December 18th. It is a bit restrictive but experience has taught us that it is really difficult to ship at this time of year. As you know, we want to always give you the very best!
