Love. They must do it for love. They love to live where they work and to work where they live. -Wendell Berry
Hi, I'm Emma Jagoz, the founding farmer at Moon Valley Farm. On the farm, I manage the CSA, field production, fix broken things and am the crazy plant lady. I started the farm to grow healthy vegetables and find myself the proudest when showing our tiniest CSA members how to pull a carrot or radish out of the soil. Growing, sharing, and learning about food alongside our community members fuels the work that I do.
I started the farm with hand tools on a very small scale, while caring for my kids who were just 1 and 2 years old our first season. Now one of my FAVORITE farm activities is driving the tractors knowing that I'm able to provide safe, healthy, organic food for so many more families.
I find more reasons to love farming every day - but primarily I get joy from seeing CSA members and Chefs make beautiful and creative dishes out of the veggies I grew.
