APOGEE SPIRULINA

Artisan Spirulina From New Mexico

The Farm is located at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The magnificent sunshine which averages 300 days a year offsets the energy use with solar power. The utilization of the French method in this excellent climate results in an unparalleled spirulina.

ARTISAN METHODS

The French artisan method of spirulina cultivation differs in several key ways from large scale commercial farms.

 

The spirulina is grown in a greenhouse which reduces water evaporation. This is critical in a high desert climate. The greenhouse also allows the spirulina to remain at a constant high temperature during cold desert nights.

 

This provides for an optimum growth rate during the summer months. The small greenhouse environment is free of dust and other contaminants, so the use of pesticides or herbicides is not necessary.

MAINTAINING NUTRITION

Harvesting is done almost daily and slow dried in a solar oven to maintain the highest nutritional levels, so a higher quality finished product is achieved.

 

During the peak of the season, harvesting is done five days a week and the ponds are rested and rejuvenated over the weekend. The growing season is between April and October. Peak harvesting occurs in the hot summer months.

FREE OF CONTAMINANTS

Most spirulina is grown in outdoor ponds and is often contaminated with pollutants from the local environment and the rain.

Apogee Spirulina is grown in a covered greenhouse, fed by mountain spring water.
