Come out to the Farm for farm-fresh, produce, pasture-raised meats and local dairy!
Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard is a family owned and operated apple orchard located in North Salem, NY, in Westchester County. Their main harvest is in September with apples but they also grow a variety of vegetables and stone fruits which ripen summer through Fall and are available at the farm store or through a CSA. First-generation farmers run the business and have been expanding on their offerings every year since 2011 when they began. In their words, "We are passionate about what we do here. Our goal is to supply our community with fresh, local, healthy food direct from the farmer, all while providing a fun, family-oriented and upbeat atmosphere for our customers to enjoy."
Not just a fruit, flower and vegetable farm, Harvest Moon also raises antibiotic and hormone-free, organic animals. Year round they stock their own farm-raised meats such as turkey, chicken, pork and 100% grass fed beef. They also sell their very own hard cider (Hardscrabble Cider), their own farm fresh free-range eggs, local honey, local dairy & cheeses, local maple syrup and other country store items. From the bakery you can expect their famous apple cider donuts (everyday!), fruit pies and specialty pastries. From the farm kitchen you can indulge in a mouth-watering bacon egg and cheese sandwich as well as other slow-food dishes made from ingredients grown right on the farm. Grab a spot in the new outdoor seating area while you enjoy your fresh food and a hard cider, overlooking the very land from which it all came.
Harvest Moon also hosts a wealth of big seasonal events – the Easter Egg Hunt and Apple Blossom Festival in Spring, Hardscrabble Cider events throughout the Summer and a really happening Fall Festival on weekends during September and October. You may also sign up for their 18-week Summer/Fall CSA program and bulk meat shares from their animals (sign-ups happen in Spring).
So come stop in, bring your friends and family and say "Hi"! We are open 7 days a week 8am-6pm from April through Christmas.
Vegetables on our farm are grown using Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This means whenever possible, we use organic fertilizers and pest controls. We also plant and harvest all of our vegetables and fruit by hand.
We use ecologically and environmentally conscious techniques for maintaining fruit crops on our farm. Due to the Northeastern US climate, the apple varieties we grow at our orchard are extremely susceptible to pests, fungi, and other detrimental diseases. These naturally occurring nuisances could cause total devastation if left untreated. For this reason, we do spray our apple trees, but we use the most environmentally conscious sprays available while still protecting our orchard from ruin.
