Emma Jagoz started Moon Valley Farm in the suburbs outside of Baltimore, MD because she wanted a cheaper source of fresh, organic vegetables for her family. Starting with a garden, she bartered for small plots of land and grew the farm until it spanned 15 acres in different locales, with 250 CSA members and top chefs in Baltimore and Washington, DC among its customers. Now, she’s moved the operation to a new, permanent location near Frederick, MD. In this episode, she talks to host Lisa Held about her journey from concerned mother to farmer and entrepreneur, and the lessons she’s learned about building a sustainable farm business along the way.
