Why Choose Sproutpeople?
We want you to grow your own food – it’s fun and it’s liberating. We want to sell you seeds for the rest of your life – so we offer only the finest seeds available. We are committed to making your sprouting experience as perfect as possible, so in addition to the most extensive list of seeds anywhere (no foolin’) – we offer a wide range of sprouters and other tools, thorough growing instructions, recipes and complete “technical support”.
Our goal is to provide the Home Sprouter with everything needed to grow the finest sprouts anywhere in the world. The seeds we sell you are the same seeds we sprout.
Between 1993-2003, we grew over 200 TONS of sprouts (1,500 pounds of sprouts weekly at our peak in 1998) – by hand. Our seeds soaked in buckets and our sprouts (which we grew in trays and buckets we had specially prepared) were rinsed and drained over a sink, 2-3 times daily. Nowadays we grow on our kitchen counter in the same sprouters we sell – of course using the same seeds we sell.
Because we grew so many sprouts for so long – and grow sprouts like you do – we are better able to understand and anticipate your needs.
Like we are fond of saying:
We Grow ‘Em – We Know ’Em!
This is one seed which we carry only occasionally as it is very hard to find good sprouting Spelt. A great alternative for those allergic to Wheat. Similar to other grasses in sweetness and nutritional value.
The hulling process is, generally too much for Spelt. Too many of the grains end up broken, and so only the part of the seed with the germ still on even has a chance to sprout. This isn’t a big deal when it comes to sprouting, as the crop is harvested in just a couple days. But, since growing Grass requires so many days it just doesn’t work unless the crop survived hulling well. We only offer Spelt for Grass when it can grow Grass. This year’s crop is by far the best we’ve seen in years. Grow your Spelt Grass while we have it.

By adding some tasty juices, you can get your kids – and yourself perhaps – to actually enjoy wheatgrass juice.
- Grass Juice, like Wheat Grass
- Apple Juice

You do need an extracting type Juicer to get juice out of Grass. We own and love a Green Life (now called Green Star) juicer. It makes easy work of this. Wash and cut or cut and wash ingredients. Start with some apples, when the juicer foams up run a few carrots through to clear it out. Repeat until you have all the apples are juiced. Feed the Grass into the juicer using carrots again to clear it out if necessary.
