Touring the gardens of Moon Gazer Farms is like wandering into a fairy tale. It isn't just the quaint meadow of flowers or newly planted orchard, the sweeping views or early growth of spring. It's also the loving dedication to the land that casts a bewitching sense of harmony and wonder.
Across the way lies an open field filled with giant rows of recently built hügelkultur beds surrounded by lush foliage. After implementing regenerative practices on a different farm last year, it was time for Moon Gazer to take the knowledge gained from that experience to their own sacred space. They have already made great strides to integrate with their new home.
Moon Gazer's deep commitment to stewardship was recognized with an award for regenerative farming at the 2016 Emerald Cup, and the farm is also certified DEM Pure by Dragonfly Earth Medicine.
With new land comes new growth: a start so fresh, you can feel the vibrant energy promising so much greatness to come. The fledgeling cannabis plants arranged inside and outside of the greenhouses are looking happy, healthy, and strong, with an extraordinary line up of genetics, many sourced from similarly sacred spaces. The hügelkultur beds are just about ready. The native soil, wriggling with worms and rich with biology and naturally occurring minerals and nutrients, will provide unique terroir. Soon all those lovely ladies will be moving into the earth to flourish through their life of flowering into fall harvest.
