All of the Seeds in this Kit are supplied by farmers who are Certified Organic
This is the sprouter we have in our kitchen.... actually, we have a dozen of these in our kitchen. Quite simply, Easy Sprout is the finest sprouter we have ever used!
A remarkably beautiful pastel bean mix where the greens, yellows and oranges are set off by the addition of deep red Adzuki beans. Beanie's Awesome Mix is our original bean combo and was originally called Jupiter's Awesome Mix - after our (first) beloved dog, who is responsible for our move "back to the land" and subsequently the rest of our lives. Jupie loved beans (her traditional birthday meal was chicken and beans) of all kinds. Awesome Mix is a wonderful snack and lends itself to many recipes.
Green, Crimson, Eston and Red Chief Lentils, Green, Marrowfat and Yellow Peas, Beige and Brown Garbanzos, Adzuki Beans
The inclusion of Arugula - an amazingly tasty sprout - is what has made French Garden - by far - our most popular Leafy sprout blend of all time! This is as gourmet as sprouts get! A delectible blend of mildly sweet, tangy, bitter and peppery.
French Garden is perfect!
Clover, Arugula, Cress, Radish, Fenugreek, Dill
This mix is beyond outrageous! We have sold a ton of it over the past 5 summers at our farmer's market in Madison, Wisconsin.
It is a very quick mix to grow, though the resulting sprouts (the Almonds and Peanuts) are not so much sprouts as "soaks" - that is, they plump up with water but produce very little (or no) root (sprout). This mix has a shorter shelf life than most sprouts - once grown it is best consumed within 48 hours, but believe us - it won't last even that long once you taste it. The shelf life issue is one of flavor not of decomposition. As a rule the Pumpkins will get a bit bitter after a few days and the Sunflowers might get a bit over-ripe, but we've kept it for almost 2 weeks in storage tests and found it still quite tasty. Decide for yourself - like we say - it isn't likely to go uneaten so its a moot point =:-}
Peanuts, Sunflower Seeds (Hulled), Pumpkins (Hulled or Naked) and Almonds
Our personal favorite among the Leafy sprouts and also the most senior of these mixes. It is the perfect acompaniment to a bagel. Oddly, I used to hate sprouts (I mean Hate!) at age 19, when I (Gil) moved to San Francisco, California (from Chicago), they put sprouts on everything - including bagels. It really infuriated me. But now, I eat Russian Mix topped bagels at an alarming rate - have for years - sometimes without anything else - just a toasted bagel with Russian Mix. Moral:
Never say never. =:-D
Clover, Onion, Mustard, Dill, Fenugreek
13 seeds mixed up to make our most popular bean sprout combo ever. At the Dane County Farmer's Market - we sell over 100 pounds every weekend throughout the Summer to our loyal and delighted customers. The inclusion of Peanuts is the main reason that more folks are addicted to this than to any other of our bean sprouts. The most popular use of this mix (and many other bean sprouts) is as a snack - the majority of our customers say they eat SF Mix like popcorn or mixed nuts - straight, but we have some great recipe ideas too.

We only use the phone for emergencies.
Back in 2001 we were still using the phone. One day I was talking to a long-time customer while pushing my (then 4 year old) daughter on the swing in our backyard (this is what a mom n' pop business is like on the internet). It dawned on me that my priorities were severely messed up, so I stopped using the phone. I love to talk and I love to help, but my family would never see me if I picked up the phone again, and that's just wrong don't you think?!
The very best way to contact us is through E-mail =:-)
We are quite fast and VERY thorough. We love to help.
We have been an internet only business since 2001. We are not a big corporation. We are but 2 people, Mom n' Pop Sprout. We decided after years of juggling our family's (kids, dogs, cats and even our own) needs, and the needs of Sproutpeople, that we had to make more time for our kids, so we stopped talking on the phone. All calls go to voice mail and have since 2001.
We are very fast to fill orders and answer e-mail, and though we wish we could make the time to talk, we just can't seem to get more minutes into a each hour. We are many years older than when we started and our days are too short and made up of too few hours to do everything. This limitation in our business has not kept us from pleasing our customers, nor from growing (as we have every year since 1993). We do what we do as well as we can, and we think we do it very well indeed.
We appreciate your patronage more than we can say. We ask that you use the phone for emergencies only and that you search our site for answers before e-mailing us. This site is bigger than any 4 sprout books put together, it is always available and it is free, and we know that almost all questions are answered here.
Thanks again for your support and your many kind words.
