But we do have some very nice tomato & herb plants, along with a limited amount of peppers, flowers, and a few other speciality items like our very own MoonFruit (cross between queen of malinalco & purple tomatillo)! We are wanting to clear the greenhouse out, so we will have some special deals for those who come by! And if you’re free that morning, please stop by the Illinois Native Plant Society Central Chapter’s annual sale at the Illinois State Fairgrounds (Reisch Pavilion) from 9 am - 12 pm!

We love working with Proud Richard's and other chefs who appreciate the value of local produce! Thank you for your support! It is an honor to be featured at such a great restaurant!

When Joe Standley opened Proud Richard’s in 2021, he didn’t intend for it to be farm to table. Now he relies on local growers for fresh produce and meat.

Happy Earth Day from Lil Earth-Head! We are here to share some updates on our plans for this growing season! First, we must inform all of our Moon-Heads that we will not be participating in the 2024 outdoor Old Capitol Farmers Market. We know this is disappointing news, but please know that we are continuing to build and make improvements to our operation here at Moon Girl Farm! Most of the land where we have been growing veggies is currently covered in a nice pollinator crop that includes several varieties of clover, which will make our bees very happy! Hannah just installed three new hives for this year too! As we take this break from growing to focus on our family and allow our soil to breathe and build up nutrients, we have plans to improve our existing structures and plant more of the perennial herbs and shrubs that will produce more of those fruits that y’all have loved so much! 😋
A couple announcements- our greenhouse is currently filled with plants for some bulk orders that we will deliver in a couple weeks. Once those are gone, we will be having an OPEN GREENHOUSE on Saturday, May 11th for our friends & supporters to come and purchase what’s left for the season! We won’t have a huge amount, so currently we plan to just have this one date! We will post more details as the time approaches, but it will be mostly tomato & herb plants!
We still have our herbal teas and would like to start making these available for online ordering! We are now just doing loose leaf and will provide more details on that later as well. But if you’re dying for some tea right away, please send us a message for more info.! 😉
And to address the question on everyone’s minds— unfortunately, we are not expecting to have a very big amount of strawberries this year, BUT if we do get enough to allow us to provide flats for customers, we will post pick up dates on here when the time comes! We will keep y’all posted on raspberry season as well!
Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support over the years! We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to live and grow food on this beautiful farm, and it has been such an honor to have the love and support of our fantastic community! 🌍 🐞🐝🦋🌻🍅🥬 💜Enjoy celebrating Mother Earth today!
Love Always, the Moon Family

Soil Health Week is upon us! Come out and participate in this fun painting activity and check out what else Illinois Stewardship Alliance has planned for the week!

Our Art and Science of Soil Health display is set up in the Capitol Rotunda. Hannah Tomlin with The AIM Initiative was there this morning with Aaron Fishburn Marshall-Putnam Soil & Water Conservation District, Chris Emerson Montgomery County Illinois Soil and Water Conservation District, Kyle Reed from the Logan County Soil & Water Conservation District.

The three are conservation planners with the Capacity Building Initiative. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service/Illinois Department of Agriculture-funded initiative promotes bottom-up agroecology and fostering sustainable innovation at the local level, with 40 conservation planners working out of NRCS/SWCD offices and assisting farmers around the state.

Every day this week until Friday visitors are invited to leave their brush strokes with soil-based paints on a large map of Illinois illustrating Illinois’ diversity of agriculture, watersheds, and conservation.
