Harvest Moon Sustainable Ventures dream began as Harvest Moon Farms, an organic produce farm founded in 2007 in Viroqua WI. The company became well known in both retail and food service in the Midwest. The market could not get enough of the quality leafy greens and heirloom tomatoes that were being grown at HMF with fresh branding and innovative marketing that both retail and food service were craving.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate and the farm was just not able to keep up with the growing market demand for fresh, local, field grown produce. In the first five years alone, there were two 100-year flood events, droughts and unseasonal hail that destroyed our annual crops, as well as the spirits of the dedicated young farmers.
Through an early partnership with a farmer in Indiana who ran a pilot hemp crop in 2019, it became abundantly clear to us that the pain point for farmers was finding a reliable, capable partner that could turn their hemp into high quality finished product and sell that product at the highest possible price. Today, we have established a state of the art facility to do just that - provide growers with an opportunity to work with a respected team of capable entrepreneurs to turn their hemp crop into the highest quality finished product and turn that product into revenue. In addition to constantly sharpening the science behind the processing, we continue to build a solid portfolio of relationships with purchasers of high-quality hemp-based finished products.
