Girme’s Wheatgrass farm & Wheatgrass Powder manufacturing unit is located at Akluj, District – Solapur, State – Maharashtra, INDIA. About 300 Kms south east of Mumbai, in a pollution free agricultural area having favourable climate with moderate annual rainfall less than 52 cm. Alkaline ground spring well water is used for cultivation and washing.
In Indian tropical climate the Wheatgrass vegetable grows quickly, absorbs 92 out of 110 minerals from the soil and reaches its peak of nutritional value in just 7 days. Hence at our farm, we grow the Wheatgrass on ground for 7 days all year round under shade net houses using organic farming method.
We then harvest the ripe Wheatgrass vegetable on 8th day by hand, chopping carefully one inch above the ground sort, wash, dehydrated indoors using natural solar energy in UV stabilised poly film house (without direct sunlight / mechanical dryer) at temperature less than 45 oC and finally grind into fine Powder using a low intensity pulveriser machine. There is no further processing or adding of any other ingredient in the Powder.
Shelf life / Expiry of Wheatgrass Powder we claim as ‘Best before 1 year from packaging’.
Quality Check – at every step is our motto. Use our product and feel the difference
New sowing, harvesting and processing is done daily all year round. We take a single crop from each bed of wheat seeding. The top soil layer (about 4 inch) from harvested beds is manually sliced and stacked aside for composting. The recycled fertile organic soil is then reused after 2 months for next seeding. This indigenous process refined by years of perfection ensures that the beneficial nutrients are maximum retained in our Girme’s Wheatgrass Powder.
Fresh product is packed in small cartons as per daily orders and sent by courier all over India and exported to many countries worldwide.
Girme’s Wheatgrass Tablets are made from the same organic Wheatgrass Powder by adding 3% Gum Acacia natural herbal binder in the tablet making process.
