HOWDY! I’m Rachel- farmer in charge, boss lady extraordinaire at Seven Moon Farm. A born flatlander, I grew up in Maryland, and moved to Maine in 2015 after receiving a degree in Anthropology and becoming thoroughly discouraged by global food economics.
I cut my teeth farming with a MOFGA Apprenticeship. Two seasons later, I knew organic farming was for me, but wasn’t ready to commit. I sowed my wild oats traveling and WWOOFing, returning to Maine once I was certain this was the place for me. I began working on farm crews in the mid coast, building the skills and courage to start Seven Moon Farm in 2020. I am a proud MOFGA Journeyperson alumni, and strive for this farm to be holistic blend of my values, goals, and skills while nourishing the socio-environmental landscape it resides in.
Seven Moon Farm is woman owned and woman operated. We are a reduced tillage, biodiverse small organic farm, growing veggies + dry flowers for wholesale and farmer’s market. We use a lot of hand tools but we also love steel in the field! Our faithful farm dog, Arlo, is the best field supervisor we could ask for.
When I’m not farming, I love being on the water, photography, cooking, and reading in bed. My partner, Nate, supports me in more ways than I could ever list, and Seven Moon Farm has so much to thank him for. Big love to you, bb ❤
