The all natural health benefits of wheatgrass were discovered in the 1930s by Charles Schnabel.  Schnabel, an agricultural chemist, was looking for a plant to nurse his dying hens.  Not only did the hens survive after being fed the wheatgrass, they prospered!  These hens, previously on the brink of death, were producing more eggs than his other hens.  Schnabel fed his other hens wheatgrass, and they too doubled their egg laying.  Schnabel then began feeding his family wheatgrass and the rest is history.

      One of the vendors at our Farmer's Market grows wheat grass and sells it. They not only sell it to customers for their own consumption, but also for the customers' pets. Dogs and cats who are housebound and don't get outside much need a healthy source of greens once in a while too.
