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—Community Supported Agriculture operation. The following year saw the first harvest of micro greens and the first sale to a New York City restaurant. Word spread from chef to chef, and what was once a small backyard operation soon became the most trusted name in the business. During this time, Jim and Kathy raised three children, the eldest of whom, Ashley, now heads the sales and marketing department. In 2007, with an eye towards expanding their product offering, Blue Moon Acres acquired a 63-acre Certified Organic 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 bio diesel 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.
Over the years Blue Moon Acres has become a well-recognized name in the food industry. Their greens can be found on the plates of fine restaurants throughout New York City, Philadelphia and across the east coast. After much success in growing greens for some of the best restaurants and caterers, local retail establishments were quick to bring Blue Moon Acres into their stores. Beginning this Spring, their Certified Organic greens and produce can be purchased directly off the Pennington, NJ farm.
Blue Moon Acres is a family run business. Owners Jim and Kathy Lyons have remained dedicated to growing the highest quality produce with the least amount of environmental impact. For over 20 years, Blue Moon Acres has been growing micro greens, herbs and produce using only natural methods. No chemical pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers or growth regulators are used in the growing practices. More than 60 varieties of high quality micro greens, micro herbs, and mixes are grown year round at the Buckingham, PA farm. The Buckingham store is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10am-4pm
