We are often asked, “Is Lady Moon Farms Organic?”
Tom Beddard, co-founder and President of Lady Moon Farms, has been committed to growing 100% organic since 1988.
Back in the day when organic was barely talked about, Tom felt that it was wrong to grow food with the poisons that most farmers were using to keep their crops strong and healthy.
He was then, and remains today, committed to growing produce by using purely organic means. This means: no synthetic pesticides, no chemical fertilizers and no GMO!
This approach to farming creates added risk to organic growers like Lady Moon Farms because there are currently no organic ways to combat certain diseases like the tomato blight fungus which can destroy entire fields of tomato crops in a matter of days.
Today, Lady Moon Farms is the largest grower of organic produce on the east coast, delivering fanatically-fresh organic produce to the finest grocery stores, produce distributors, co-ops and CSAs on the east coast.
