CSA Farm Highlight: Copper Moose Farm

Written by Desiree Van Dyke | Thursday, 04 August 2016 13:21

Copper Moose Farm is in its 10th year farming in Summit County! They grow on 3 acers and are assisted by their 2,400 square foot passive solar greenhouse and two hoop houses. They provide organically grown vegetables and cut flowers for the Park City community through their CSA and farm stand.

Daisy Fair worked with Ranui Gardens in Utah for 3 years before starting Copper Moose Farm in 2006. Daisy has roots in organic agriculture as her mother owned and ran an organic apple orchard. She stated that Copper Moose only uses the best organic and biodynamic practices but are no longer certified.

Copper Moose Farms offers 80 CSA shares per year. Their season runs from late May into October. The pick-up location is at their farm stand in Park City. Shareholders bring their own bags to the stand to receive their items market style. CSA Shares consist of vegetables and flowers. They also have egg, Red Bicycle Bread and Beehive Cheese add on options.

Their half share will feed about 2 people per week, while their full share will feed 4 people per week. Prices range from $375.00 to $1,100.00 per season. They do offer a small number of work share spots.

Copper Moose Farm provides a wide variety of crops from their fields and hoop houses.  Even though they could freeze any month of the year they produce great tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, and beans from covered growing spaces.

In addition to their CSA and farm stand they have an annual open house at the beginning of the season and regular U-pick crops once for peas, beans and cherry tomatoes.

 “Our on-farm pick up allows our members to really get to know the growers and land that produce their food. Our farm stand and market style CSA pick up promotes the sharing of recipes and friendship between our members and other customers. We feel that our CSA really does build Community and we are honored to be a part of our members lives on a weekly basis year after year.” -Daisy Fair
