Here at Boulder Valley Waldorf School we have 38 acres of land. Our 5-acre “inner campus” includes our school buildings, play yards, and gardens. We have 32 acres of agricultural land and open space for regular “field” trips, including the shady cottonwoods to the north. The three main farm fields are managed by Aspen Moon Farms following organic and biodynamic practices by master farm manager Jason Griffith.
About Aspen Moon Farms
Started in 2009, Aspen Moon Farms consisted of 2.5 acres in Longmont, Colorado with 1 acre of cultivated vegetables and 1 Farmer’s Market in Longmont. Now we are amazed by the 99 acres in our care with approximately 25 acres in production. We happily serve seasonal Farmer’s Markets in Longmont on Saturdays and Boulder on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We also offer an abundant roadside farm stand, open daily as the season allows. Finally, we are most proud of our CSA program and are so grateful for a wonderful group of annual CSA members (200 strong and growing) whose kind support keeps the farm open and productive.
Aspen Moon Farm is USDA Certified Organic and Demeter Certified Biodynamic so our produce is truly 100% natural and bee friendly. We work hard to provide our own on-farm fertility through biodynamic compost, cover cropping, and crop rotation. All of our crops are carefully tended (many are hand-harvested) so you get the cleanest, freshest, and most nutritious produce possible. Our crops include a wide range of season vegetables, beautiful organic flowers, and succulent berries.
Led by Jason and Erin (biodynamic gardeners, turned homesteaders, turned farmers) Aspen Moon Farm is managed by a team of inspiring farm crew and interns. It is truly this team and the heart and soul they put into this farm (not to mention the 60+ hours of physically demanding work every week) that allows us to maintain and grow.
We are helped along by the dignified (sometimes not so dignified) ministrations of 12 kind-hearted cows, a gaggle of escape-artist chickens, and elusive band of wondering cats, some very busy bees, and our dog/mascot Zuzu who keeps us all in line and laughing.
At Aspen Moon Farm, we work together to cultivate sustainable, life-giving, deliciously organic produce for you and your family.
We plant, we weed, we tend, we dig, we water, we run, we lift, we clean, we bunch, we clean again, we count, we pack, we ache, we tire, we thank and we love…it all!! Simply, we love growing good food for you!
