About the Farm

Local, organic produce
USDA Certified Organic since 1999

At Blue Moon Farm, our goal is simple: Produce the most beautiful, best tasting produce possible using only organic methods. Our 20-acre organic vegetable farm located 10 miles north of Champaign-Urbana grows quality produce for Urbana's farmer's market, grocery stores, our CSA, and local restaurants. We are committed to the collective project of implementing farming practices that promote the health and well-being of the land we grow on and the people who eat our food. Buying locally leads to more accountability between the farmer and the eater and that relationship is important to us.
