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.
