Description

Blue Moon Acres all started with a passion for high-quality, locally-produced food. With backgrounds in natural foods-wholesaling and farming, owners Jim and Kathy Lyons wanted to pursue a healthier, more sustainable form of agriculture. Together they realized their dreams to own and operate a farm. When Blue Moon first opened its doors in 1992, it did so as a CSA. In 2007, with an eye towards expanding their product offering, Blue Moon Acres acquired a 63-acre New Jersey Grown farm on agriculturally-preserved land in Pennington, New Jersey. It was here that several years later, Blue Moon built their first farm market, in which both the farm’s organic produce and other locally-made goods are sold. Today, the farm operates with an ever-increasing focus on sustainability via the use of biodiesel farm equipment and geothermal heating and cooling techniques. Looking to the future, Blue Moon’s focus will remain on sustainability and soil biology, which results in disease-resistant, better-tasting, more nutrient-dense foods.
