Updates From the Farm

Welcome to Full Moon Farm! Yes, we are doing our winter CSA this year. After two seasons of trials we have decided to keep our ABSOLUTELY FLEXIBLE CSA model and just keep tweaking it until it's as cose to perfect as we can come. The new system allows folks to come by ANY of our locations (Temple Sinai (South Burlington, Full Moon Farm (Hinesburg) and/or the Burlington Winter Farmers' Market, (at the Davis Center at UVM) and grab whatever they want (Organic chicken, pork, eggs, and/or vegetables) in ANY QUANTITY!

Our new registration forms will be up by Friday, Oct 12th at the latest Click Here to learn more about our Flexible winter CSA or to register.

Full Moon Farm is a 155 acre certified organic vegetable farm located in Hinesburg, Vermont. We grow 30 acres of diversified organic vegetables and raise certified organic, pastured pork and chickens which we sell through our 200 member CSA, at the farm and at the Burlington Summer and Winter Farmers' Markets.

Now in its nineteenth year of production, Full Moon Farm is the longest-serving off-farm CSA in Chittenden County. We are absolutely committed to connecting consumers to their local food sources and producers. We started this farm wanting people to meet the people that use best organic practices to grow their food. We have not been waiting for or expecting the local food revolution, but we sure are glad folks are finally realizing the value of supporting local, organic farms. We like growing food. We like knowing where our food goes. We like answering your questions, meeting your families and watching your faces light up at the sight of your fresh produce every week. We like the connection so much, that unlike almost every other off-site pick-up CSA in America, we come to the pick-ups to be an active part of the farmer/consumer equation.

Organic

Our CSA offers pick-ups at five convenient commuter routes in Chittenden County: Temple Sinai, (corner of Swift and Dorset Streets,) South Burlington, Peoples Bank in Williston, One Main St. in Burlington, Full Moon Farm one (just off route 116,)in Hinesburg and at the Burlington Farmers Market.

In 2009 we started raising 900-1000 organic broiler chickens for direct market as well. Our customers are incredibly grateful that there is a certified organic producer of poultry in Chittenden County. There are fewer certified organic meat producers than one would think and plenty of folks masquerading as such. Be sure to check for the certified organic label, not just at a farmstand but on the actual product, to make sure you are spending your hard-earned dollars on the real thing.

In 2010 we began raising organic, pastured pigs. Certified organic pigs are different from pastured pigs in that the grain they are fed in addition to what they eat on pasture, is non-GMO, and non-pesticide-laden. Not only does this make a difference in what you eat, it also makes a big difference to the environment. PLEASE NOTE: SOME OF OUR PIGS ARE NOT CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Although all of our pigs are raised under stringent organic guidelines, they cannot all be slaughtered that way. In order to be certified, the pork must be slaughtered at a certified organic facility. Sometimes those facilities are booked solid and sometimes those certified facilities have mutilated our pork so badly that we refuse to go back. How can the consumer tell the difference? Just look at the label, if it has a certification label on it, it went to a certified organic facility. If it does not, it did not. To learn more about our pigs Click Here
