Zydeco Moon farm has been growing beautiful organic produce for the past four years. We are certified organic by the USDA. To insure our customers that we are following the latest organic practices we chose to become certified. Certification entails far more than just the absence of synthetic pesticides and herbicides. The standards require that we have an environmental plan for our farm which prevents erosion and amends the soil in a planned way. A rotation plan for our crops is required to assist in preventing disease. We also have a beneficial landscape of various wildflowers to attract beneficial insects rather than rely totally on spraying. We are required to document everything that we do in the field to insure it meets current organic standards.
Over the last 4 years we have incorporated more land into farming so that we now have a total of 5 acres. We begin planting in March each year and have produce into November. Our primary crops are asparagus, sugar snap and snow peas, all varieties of lettuce, beets, spinach, leeks, heirloom tomatoes, bell peppers, summer and winter squash and fingerling potatoes. We're always looking to try something new, including our latest, purple and yellow cauliflower. We sell at the Watauga County farmers market and at the farm. During the growing season we are always here so stop by and visit or call ahead to have your order ready.
