About Us

Since 1982

America's Premier Wheatgrass Grower

Our mission is no big deal...

Just to Feed & Heal The World with earth's most Perfect Foods.
Established in 1982
We've been doing this for a while...

Perfect Foods brought wheatgrass and microgreens to NYC since their Brooklyn beginings over 35 years ago.
Pioneers in Urban Farming
We were one of the first people on the East Coast to attempt farming in an urban setting with vertical shelving and lights. Today, there are hundreds of companies doing what we designed over 35 years ago in Brooklyn.
Locally Grown

Locally grown food is the most sustainable and economical solution to today's largest environmental and malnutrition issues and we are large proponents of local agriculture. **Did you know 1 truck of broccoli seeds grown locally, yields the same amount as 1,000 trucks of broccoli heads shipped from across the country?
Family Owned
We have the pleasure of working with our family and entire team of employees (they're family too!). We have Harley and Alyse (owners) together with Aaron (manager) and Rebecca (sales). We love our customers and tend to have a uniquely close relationship with every single one. The health industry is close knit and we are stronger together!
Soil Grown & Organic
We grow all of our greens in our organic compost mix, high in minerals and nutrients. We believe rich soil is essential for an optimally healthy plant, grown as nature intended.

We are pioneers of the "Soil-Grown" movement to educate against the use of artificial hydroponics.

**Did you know the "Organic" movement originally meant a rich compost, not the absence of pesticides.

How We Got Started Growing Grass...

In 1982, Harley Matsil and Jack Mevorah began their backyard business in Brooklyn when there was not a blade of wheatgrass to be found in New York City. Jack was a hippy who knew about wheatgrass from California and Harley was a business man. The two friends dreamed of regenerating the health of the city by supplying New Yorkers with fresh green food. They looked in the phone book for the first 3 health food stores they could find to ask them if they were interested in wheatgrass. All 3 were thrilled and said yes right away – They were in business! 

Of course things are never that simple.  It was an uphill battle to get people onboard with drinking this “green stuff”, but Harley and the team never quit.  They knew the power of wheatgrass and the lives they were helping by providing it.  So they created a home delivery service, and eventually as demand grew, health food stores through NYC began serving fresh wheatgrass juice at their juice bars.

Perfect Foods Today...

Today, Harley, the president, works with his family, Alyse, Aaron, and Rebecca, and his staff at Perfect Foods to make wheatgrass as readily available to as many people as possible in our region. 

We supply hundreds of juice bars in the NYC area and are always “growing” (pun intended). We now have expanded our varieties of organic microgreens for restaurants, supermarkets, and home deliveries.

Our indoor growing facility operates year-round to bring you the freshest possible products. We use rich composted soil, full-spectrum lighting, and filtered water to guarantee the greenest, healthiest wheatgrass and microgreens in the world.  Not to mention, everything we grow is USDA certified organic.

Our Goal

At Perfect Foods we believe the body, given proper nutrition, can heal itself.  As well, the best possible foods for your health are green leafy vegetables.  Of  green leafy vegetables, young greens are even healthier, and that’s exactly what Wheatgrass & Micrgrogreens are.

Our goal is to provide these “Perfect Foods” by growing the highest quality available, delivering them, and educating about their incredible healing qualities. Thousands of people have used our products and shared their amazing experiences with us.

In the years to come, we hope to continue to be able to share these amazing foods while our society slowly becomes more conscious of the values of plant-based nutrition for health, local agriculture, and sustainability.
