We have farms in Chambersburg, PA, Punta Gorda, Immokalee and Loxahathcee, Florida as well as Bainbridge, Georgia.
With these locations, Lady Moon Farms is able to provide year-round availability on most of our products while remaining fanatical about freshness!
About The Lady
We tried to incorporate the three sisters of corn/beans/squash from the Native Americans, but with Chris kneeling as the model with her hand in the air, and a friend taking pictures, we just settled for the lady and the moon.
The fact that you’re on our site may mean you already know the important answer. If you don’t here’s why: Traditional non-organic farming relies on chemicals that are hazardous to workers, the soil and ultimately those who handle and consume the foods produced using them. These chemicals deplete otherwise healthy, living soil while organic farming builds the soil by working to understand what it needs and then providing it using organic products, not products derived from petroleum.
Most of us know someone affected by disease and if we assume the moniker “you are what you eat” is true, is it wise to consume produce treated with artificial chemicals meant to kill living things? Be kind to yourself, be kind to the planet, be kind to your farmer and may you live a long and fulfilling life!
To Be USDA Certified Organic Means:
Our Farm must participate in annual onsite inspections ensuring we are compliant with all the guidelines. These audits require the following actions:
- Preserve natural resources and biodiversity: Care must be taken to ensure you are not depleting the soil, water, or other resources. Growers have different tools they can utilize to accomplish this, such as cover cropping, composting, crop rotations, soil tests, natural erosion blockades, natural habitat protection, the list goes on… To be successful, growers must approach the system holistically using a variety of these practices to create a farm plan. You can learn more on the "Sustainability" page.
- Only use approved materials: There is a strict set of guidelines on what you can and cannot use in your fields. This means care must be taken at every stage of growing. Land cannot be grown organically until it has been left fallow or free of chemicals for 3+ years.
- Do not use GMOs: Organic growers are prohibited from the use of genetically modified seeds or other ingredients throughout the entire growing process.
