Lady Moon Farms is the largest grower of Certified Organic produce on the East Coast with farms located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Punta Gorda, Florida, and Bainbridge, Georgia. This impressive farming operation began in 1988 with 5 tillable acres and a dream: “a dream that people can really change the world they live in!”
Tom and Chris Beddard, along with their two kids, moved to Chambersburg, wanting to “smell the fresh country air, see the stars fill the darkened night sky, have animals … and more than anything else, grow food ourselves. Food that we knew was grown with love and care for the soil and earth. Food that would be free of dangerous chemicals because it never made sense to us why anyone would spray poisons on the food they would eat. Food that would allow our children to grow up strong and healthy.”
“Having lived that dream”, according to Tom Beddard, “I now dream of filling as many homes as I can with the same lovingly-grown food I raised my own family on.” True to their mission, Lady Moon Farms now supplies countless families around the country with fresh, organic produce in all seasons, always ensuring fair labor practices and year-round employment for their workers.
We order as much as we possibly can from Lady Moon Farms because we are confident that it meets our high produce standards at Harvest Market. Depending on the time of year, we receive: kale, romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, collard greens, beets with tops, eggplant, cilantro, parsley, cucumbers, dandelion greens, Swiss chards, and watermelon. Favorite amongst these items is the Lacinato Kale, the most prized of all kale according to our Produce Department!
Alongside Harvest Market, Lady Moon Farms is a Lifetime Business Member of PASA, the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture. We admire the humility, passion and determination of the Beddards and of the farmers behind the Lady Moon brand. We wish them continued growing success for the health and welfare of all our future generations!
