FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DO YOU GROW?
Moonshot Farm sells cut flowers, rainbow eggs, and raw honey. We may have additional products throughout the season such as potted herbs, flower bulbs, and produce. We also sell pasture-raised lamb.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?
We are currently closed for the season. Starting in April 2021, we will have a weekend farmstand selling rainbow eggs, fresh cut flowers, and more. We will also be hosting classes and workshops at the farm.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ORGANIC?
Our flowers and produce are not certified organic, however we use sustainable, bee-friendly growing practices, including no pesticides or herbicides. Our eggs are not certified organic, but our chickens are fed non-GMO feed and are pasture-raised on fresh grass. We find this is the best compromise between healthy eggs and price, as organic chicken feed is very expensive. Organic honey does not exist in the United States, as it's impossible to know where bees are foraging. Our honey is always raw and contains no additives like corn syrup.
DO YOU SELL VEGETABLES?
No. We sell cut flowers, rainbow eggs, and honey from the farm. We do have a large veggie garden for our family and teach classes on growing your on veggies. For great local produce, check out our neighbors at Abe's Acres Farm.
HOW MUCH ARE EGGS?
In 2021, rainbow eggs at the farmstand will be $6/dozen. We know it's a lot. Rainbow eggs are inherently more expensive because these rare chicken breeds lay many fewer eggs per year than standard commercial layers. We are also committed to feeding non-GMO feed and pasture-raising our chickens on fresh grass. Once you taste the sunny golden yolks of farm-fresh eggs, you'll never want to go back to store-bought again!
WHAT FLOWERS DO YOU GROW?
We grow over 100 varieties of specialty cut flowers at the farm! These are different than the flowers you can get at most grocery stores or florist shops, which are usually shipped from far away. Here are some of the flowers we grow:
Spring: ranunculus, anemones, specialty tulips, daffodils, poppies, alliums
Summer: lisianthus, sunflowers, zinnias, cosmos
Fall: dahlias, heirloom chrysanthemums, ornamental kale, dried grains and grasses
WHAT ANIMALS DO YOU HAVE? CAN I MEET THEM?
We currently have chicken, sheep, goats and donkeys at Moonshot Farm. We don't currently have a petting zoo, but you may be able to see the animals out on pasture when you visit the farm. Check out our social media pages to follow along as new animals are born!
DO YOU SELL LAMB?
We currently only sell whole, live lambs from the farm. Lambs are typically available in the spring and summer, for holidays like Easter and Eid al-Adha. Please send us an email for details if you're interested in buying lamb.
HOW LONG DO FARM-FRESH FLOWERS LAST? HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY FLOWERS?
Our flowers are freshly cut, conditioned appropriately, and stored in floral preservative. Typically they have a vase life of 4-7 days or more. Some flowers naturally have a shorter vase life, such as dinner-plate dahlias or poppies.
To get the longest life from your flowers, follow these care instructions:
Fresh flowers drink a ton! Check your vase often to ensure it stays full.
Re-cut flower stems with sharp scissors and change water every 2 days.
Keep flowers out of direct sunlight and away from ripening fruit.
