Anne and her husband, John, own and operate Moonlight Farm, a family farm that focuses on producing grass fed/grass finished beef, pastured pork, and free range chicken. Their beef comes from Scottish Highland Cattle, and is USDA Certified Grass Fed. They also raise and sell meat from Red Wattle Hogs and free-range chickens. They market their meat through local farmers markets, as a CSA farm. They have recently purchased a meat processing operation and storefront to market their products. For more info go to:
