Moon In The Pond is dedicated to increasing the understanding of the importance of sustainable local food systems and conducts a wide variety of educational programs within the setting of a working, diversified, artisanal farm. We work with individuals and groups to teach the value and cultural necessity of sustainable farming and vital rural agricultural communities. Moon In The Pond draws on traditional and modern knowledge and demonstrates the skills and techniques of ecological local food production.
As a small, diverse, sustainable, permaculture farm dedicated to education, the relationship of people to nature is constantly explored in a myriad of ways that includes animals, crops, self-sufficiency, sustainability, permaculture, ecology, conservation of heirloom vegetable varieties and seeds, conservation of historic livestock, and traditional and modern farming techniques; all while working at filling the needs of today’s culture and society. We raise all heritage breed animals for meat (nearly ten thousand pounds annually) and only heirloom vegetables. We also produce eggs, honey, fruit and lots more. We sell our produce locally, directly to families, partly through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture program) at the farm and at local farmers’ markets. 100% of the proceeds of all sales benefit our educational mission. Moon In the Pond operates as a non-profit educational organization registered in Massachusetts and accepts donations to support our work.
