Experiential farm tours for all ages and interests. But it really comes down to just having fun! Soil releases serotonin. Once in a Blue Moon Farm was on the forefront of agritourism activities and lodging on Orcas Island. In 2011 we were included in a USDA pilot program spearheaded by the Obama administration to promote outdoor activities like agritourism called America's Most Beautiful Farms. The Farm was voted 2nd place nationally! Approaching our third decade as a multi-generational family business, the farm is a living collaborative creative endeavor, one with dreams and intentions, continually evolving with artistic passion and purpose. With backgrounds, degrees, and professional experience in landscape architecture, accounting, medicine and nutrition everyone in the family brings something to keep the farm going.
