We thought we’d take a few moments to introduce ourselves and tell you more about our philosophies that have brought us this far and inspired us to start the farm. Here are our core values and how they relate to our farm operation:
Integrity | Here’s the Webster dictionary definition of the word: “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.” Here at Honey Moon Farm we believe that a little honesty goes a long way. How does that translate to our work? We will be honest with ourselves, and honest with you, our customers! We practice full transparency and will be happy to answer any questions about our practices and principals.
Quality | This one probably does not require much explanation, but we’ll say it anyway, we believe in taking care of our land and our soil to produce the highest quality products possible. We take pride in the appearance, taste and nutritional value of our crops and we put only our highest quality products on display.
Sustainability | The word “sustainability” means a lot of different things to many different people! I personally like one of the more standard definitions- the “triple bottom line,” also known as the 3 P’s- people, planet, profit. Everything that we do, and all the decisions that we make have all 3 “P’s” in mind. We believe that in order to sustain the farm in the long term we need to care for ourselves and all other people we come into contact with, care for our land, and the planet in general, and of course, return enough profit to keep going.
Community building | We believe that farms have a unique ability to play a very important role not only in supporting and bolstering the local economy, but also serving as a community hub, bringing people together around shared interests and values. As we become more established in our community we look forward to building an intentional community around our farm and contributing in any way we can to the health and well-being of our neighbors.
Love | Ah, yes, love! We believe that farming in general is a labor of love, something that one must be incredibly passionate about to succeed in. We treat our plants and animals with love, and care for them compassionately. And, of course, we love our customers, and everyone in our lives that supports us on this journey. Love and gratitude for everything that we have keeps us happy and working hard from day to day.
