Welcome to Farmer Elizabeth's first ever Holiday Gift Guide! We are excited to help you share the gift of healthy food with everyone on your list.  Whether you are sending a gift or making memories together, we hope you will consider the following ideas to grow our local food system: 

  • A gift of organic mushrooms
  • Mushroom experiences - at home and in the wild
  • Local Restaurant recommendations
  • 2022 CSA shares with our farm partners and/or enough of their goodies to fill an indulgent gift bag
  • Compost gifts for your gardener/landscaper
  • A charitable donation to a hunger relief or  environmental protection organization in our community

When you spend your holiday gift money locally, you invest in the  local economy, and the people who live and work here.  When you spend your money with local farmers and conservation organizations, you also invest in the land and the ecosystem. A sincere thank you for your support of Fat Moon Farm and your support of all our partners. You make our work possible. 

Best wishes for a meaningful, fun-filled holiday season. - Farmer Elizabeth

Local Restaurant Recommendations

Whether you are looking to purchase gift cards or are treating friends to a night out, we hope you will support restaurants that serve Fat Moon Mushrooms. We all know they have been through hell in the past 18 months. Any purchase - dinner in the restaurant, carry out, or a gift card, helps with their recovery and allows them to continue to support local farmers.

Local Farmstand Recommendations

Local farms are the backbone of our food system and there are two ways to support them this holiday season. 

First, gift a loved one a gift certificate towards a 2022 CSA. Your purchase will help the farmers purchase seeds and make necessary winter improvements to local farms. 

Second, visit one of the year-round farmstands to fill a gift bag with locally produced goodies. Pancake mix + maple syrup. Tea + chocolates. Hot cocoa mix + cookies. The possibilities are endless!
