Fresh Origins (San Marcos)

Combining the benefits our great weather with a deep passion for quality and innovation, Fresh Origins has become the number one source of Microgreens and Edible Flowers to America’s top restaurants and resorts. The farm was founded by David Sasuga, after growing flowering plants for 20 years.  David always wanted to grow fresh produce and the opportunity came unexpectedly.  Back in 1995, a local chef came to their greenhouse and got excited when he saw some basil seedlings growing there.  He wanted to try using them to accent his plate presentations and although it did not make a lot of sense at the time, it was then that David began producing these and other varieties of tiny, fresh-cut seedlings destined for restaurants in Orange County California.  Fresh Origins has come a long way since then, and David and his family produce a wide variety of Microgreens, Petite®Greens, Edible Flowers, and related items for chefs throughout North America.
