Air Force veteran Cheryl Besenjak and her business partner Kevin Westing founded Growing Healthy People/Grow Well Farms in 2015, selling microgreens at farmers markets in Lake County IL.
The variety of greens available at various times include: arugula, basil, broccoli, cilantro, celery, kale, pea shoots, radish, red cabbage, sunflower, wheatgrass and more.
Grow Well Farms grows year round at their new greenhouse location at the Lake Forest Country Day School. They are growing microgreens, herbs, veggies and more.
For the summer of 2016, Grow Well Farms is selling microgreens and wheatgrass at the following locations:
- The Northbrook farmers market (Wednesday mornings)
- The Lake Bluff farmers market (Friday mornings)
- Purple Sprout Cafe at 341 E. Dundee Rd in Wheeling
- All Ways Healthy at 123 S. Rand Rd in Lake Zurich
Come fall when the markets close, Grow Well Farms will be a vendor at several indoor farmers markets – watch for updates on days/times/locations.
