About Us

About Kristen

I'm Kristen, the owner and primary manager at Blue Moon. I began my career in the Hudson River Valley of New York as an apprentice at Roxbury Farm CSA. This immersion experience of tending 40 different crops on over 30 acres with the guidance of gifted farmers got me hooked on growing vegetables and the CSA model itself. After working for CSA farms for 4 years in New York and Wisconsin, I started Blue Moon Community Farm in 2004. 

 15 years later, I still love what I do, and feel that our small acreage gives us the opportunity to hone our skills, know our customers, and be good stewards to our land. I live on the farm with my husband, who does freelance ecological consulting from a home office, and our son Cyrus, born May of 2013. A diversified vegetable farm, even a small one, cannot be run well without the work of many hands, and I am joined each year by a crew of assistant managers, field employees and worker shares. 

About Blue Moon

I started Blue Moon on rented acreage south of Madison in 2004.  In 2007, my husband and I purchased our current farm and I moved the operation to its forever home in the beautiful Town of Dunn.  Over the past 15 years, Blue Moon has grown from a 1 acre plot to over 6 acres of intensive production. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) formed the foundation of the farm, and remains at the core of what we do.  Our CSA members are the heart of our farm, and we love sharing it with them.  Blue Moon offers both an on-farm CSA program and a Market CSA at our stand at the Westside Community Market in Madison.   We are fortunate to have a wonderful community of members and invite you to join us!
