Fat Moon Farm - Lowell, MA
Fat Moon Farm grows local, organic mushrooms that are unsurpassed in freshness, flavor, nutrition, and beauty. Their unique, gourmet varieties can be used in all your favorite recipes. Farmer/owner Elizabeth Almeida didn’t start out as a mushroom grower. In 2011, she leased land in Massachusetts’ Merrimack Valley and launched a vegetable CSA. “I loved being able to feed people, the physical work, being my own boss, having flexible hours so I could care for my two children, solving the diverse problems that come up, and playing a role in the local food movement,” Elizabeth says. “But when I tried to buy farm land so I could scale up, the cost was prohibitive.” Elizabeth was faced with the biggest challenge of her career: Finding a crop that she could grow that didn’t require sunlight or a lot of land. While trying to figure this out, Elizabeth bought her son a grow-your-own mushroom kit because he was crazy about mushrooms. She looked at the kit and it hit her: “Aha! Mushrooms!” The funny thing was, she grew up on a farm where they foraged for morel mushrooms, but it’d never occurred to her that she could produce them as a crop. Elizabeth gave herself a crash course in mushroom growing and began commercial production in 2016. Read more at https://fatmoonmushrooms.com/.
